Some Additional Remarks Concerning Issues Opened by Prof. Wang Jianjiang

Aleš Erjavec

Abstract


The article is a further exchange of ideas between a Chinese and a Slovenian scholar. The exchange concerns the position of humanities (especially aesthetics) in China. The exchange between Prof. JianjiangWang and Prof. Aleš Erjavec brings out two very different experiences of the role of the humanities in China and in the West. Prof. Erjavec believes that China is to a large extent following the path of the development of aesthetics and the humanities in the West, while Prof. Jianjian Wang argues that China should develop its more specific and more easily recognized Chinese tradition, thereby making China an important and influential academic force in the world. He expects the strength and position of the Chinese tradition in the humanities to equal the strength of China in economy, development and so on. Great efforts will have to be made if such an outcome is expected.
