[Speaker] Wang, Bo:1

A large body of literature on Chinese Indigenous Psychology bears on Chinese conception of thinking and reasoning, justice, personality, empathy, interpersonal relationship, and even child-rearing. It is believed that these Chinese indigenous concepts shaped by Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism are fundamentally different from the Western style. But the conditions of possibility of Chinese Indigenous Psychology have not been directly addressed. I plan to introduce new perspectives which would help lay foundations for Chinese Indigenous Psychology. It will include into the a priori principles of knowledge the founding principles of communicative experience, of repetitive truth and of hermeneutics, etc.
