Chinese Cultural Dynamics and Childhood: Towards a New Individuality for Education
Zhao, Guoping
Frontiers of Education in China, v5 n4 p579-595 Dec 2010
This paper explores, through the lens of childhood, the Chinese cultural dynamics that encourage harmonious human relationships at the price of individual development and yet support a deep appreciation of natural human experiences that allows room for the development of individuality. The purpose of such investigation is to reexamine our cultural heritage in regard to the ways we conceptualize human beings and treat them, retracing its promises, difficulties, pitfalls, and spiritual resources, and thus to help reconfigure a new individuality for education.
