Value Discrepancy Between Chinese Collectivism and Western Individualism From the Daqing Spirit

Huaxue WANG, Dechang JI


The Daqing Spirit, narrowly speaking, stems from daqing. On a broad sense, it belongs to the Chinese nation. It is not only the precious spiritual wealth of the Chinese nation but also a part of the advanced Chinese culture. This kind of national spirit covers excellent ideas, noble characters and strong will, which is natured in the long development of adapting to a new environment.The orientation of individualism or the collectivism is one of the key points in understanding oriental and western cultural sense of value and is the important obstacle reflected in linguistic communication.
