Until 1978 China had a class struggling model of development. After years of bad experience, it was only natural to leave that model and to focus on the economical development of the country The Ruling party of China decided to take The Middle Way of economical development, combining the leading role of the communist party and capitalistic market economy. Chinese people were used to The Middle Way because of ancient history, local psychology and the prevailing mixture of Daoist and Confucian philosophy. The philosophical and psychological tendency of Chinese people to tend to find a Middle Way and reasoning, is very much different than the western thinking, which is based on finding always right way and contradiction. In this paper, we will discuss foundations and limitations of the Chinese Middle Way Model and whether it is really the most natural way for China. Also, we are trying to foresee the future development of the Chinese model and the limitations of the Middle Way Reasoning and its implications to the growth and exponentially of the 21st century.

Chinese Abstract


到1978年为止,中国一直处于阶级斗争模式。经历数年恶劣发展经验后,中国自然放弃了这种发展模式,而开始注重经济发展。 中国的执政党决定采取结合共产党的领导地位与资本主义市场经济相结合的经济发展的中庸之道。由于历史、地方思维模式、和道家儒家思想相混合的信仰盛行,中国人一直习惯采取中庸之道。中国人在哲学上和心理上都倾向于采取中庸之道,这与西方的思维模式有着很大的区别,后者往往是基于非黑即白的思维基础上的。本文将讨论中庸之道模式的基础和局限,并阐述这一模式对中国来说是否确实是最自然的模式。此外,我们还尝试预测中国模式的未来发展走向以及中庸之道思维模式的局限,以及它对21世纪大幅度发展的启示。
