Restoring Culture Back to Its True Nature: The Perception of “Culture” in Traditional Chinese Hermeneutics

Liqin LI


In the ancient The Book of Change of China, “script” means the manifestation of all things into certain phenomena or appearances. The “human scripts” refers to the human culture that “saints are using to organize things”. In this sense, “culture” refers to “achieving universal peace and order” with the “scripts” as the means of education so as to realize the harmony and prosperity of the world. In this case, the cultural activities show the meaning of things in nature or the artificial products, which presents the unique lifestyles and values of the Chinese people. The concept of “culture” in traditional Chinese Hermeneutics has become a “meaningful pattern” because of the people living with it.

Key words: Chinese culture; Traditional Chinese Hermeneutics; The Book of Change; Achieving universal peace and order with scripts
