The Development Trend of Student Politics in China

Guangyan WANG

Abstract


From the perspective of group politics, student politics is possessed with great political power in a country. Based on the distinguishment between “student politics” and “student political activism (or movement)”, this paper generalizes the main three forms of student politics over different times in China, i.e., “successive” politics in the traditional feudal society, “oppositional” politics in the turbulent society and “abstaining” politics in the material society, and further puts forward an appropriate form suitable for the current transitional society of China, i.e., “inter-communicative” politics, emphasizing equal and honest dialogue between two subjects, the older generation and the younger generation, who are linked by inter-subjectivity with love instinct and values of goals. The “inter-communicative” student politics may safeguard the development of China’s democratic politics in a sustainable way, and is a politically correct expression of today’s and future’s society in China.
