Modernity, Post-modernity, and the Birth of the Chinese School of International Relations
ZHAO Ji- xian (School of International Studies, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China)
Most Chinese scholars base their researches in International Relations Theory (IRT) on modernity, in which the West has already secured an unshakable hegemonic position. Ever since the 1960's, the post-modernity, with its multi-originality and multi-element characteristics, has come to the forefront; and it has positive significance for the innovation of IRT. After failures in efforts of several decades to establish the Chinese school of IRT, the Chinese scholars might divert their endeavors to the post-modernity direction in their exploration to construct the Chinese School of IRT.
