The Epistemology of China's Rise and Its Narrative Derivatives

Chih-yu Shih Teng-chi Chang Chih-yu Shih,Professor of Political Science,National Taiwan University;Teng-chi Chang,Assistant Professor,Institute of Strategic and International Affairs,National Chungcheng University.  
Reading the rise of China is more than theoretical or interpretive. It is an affective engagement,pertaining particularly to passion and anxiety. The resulting Sinicization is accordingly the recombination of discourse and effect in and outside China. The paper draws wisdom from psychoanalysis. It explores the deep motivation behind the practice of a social relationship embedded in the needs for self-centrism and group belonging,from which four different discursive approaches to the rise of China can be derived,each in its own way associated with the effects of opportunity and threat. They are "nation state," "civilization," "Tianxia," and "Asianism." Chinese narrators take Tianxia and "nation state" as their discursive strategies in response to the external view on the rise of China. Both strategies are mediated by self-centrism and group belonging and evolve into four possibilities-national interests,imperialism,sovereignty and center-periphery. The last possibility has attracted enthusiastic response in China lately,but it has also been re-appropriated by social science concepts such as soft power and social capital,to the distorted effect that cognitive misrepresentations are unavoidable.
