Chapter Summary

Compared to economic recession in America and the West and social chaos in Russia and Eastern Europe, China in recent years has upheld social stability whilst at the same time maintaining relatively high economic growth. The coming conflict faced by the West is with Islamic civilisation and with Confucian civilisation represented by China. In recent years the impatient disparagement of traditional culture has gradually faded away, which is itself a reflection of social and economic development. Taken in a narrow sense, which is also the commonly used sense, 'reform and opening-up' refers to economic reform. Th e foreign cultural resources adopted by reform and opening-up are elements of contemporary culture such as science and democracy from the West, whilst the normative system is intimately connected to the cultural tradition.

Keywords: economic development; traditional Chinese culture
