“China as a notion of theocracy” is the upcoming academic treatise of Mr. Zhao Tingyang. The book unscrambled theocracy notion in China from a political angle. In the keynote speech phase, Mr. Zhao Tingyang shared core content of the book. In his opinion, China is a nation, a civilization, and a history in the same time. But these three elements are not happening the same time, they are growing eventually. Professor Zhao also put up the theory of “China vortex”, and other structural problems of China history.
In the discussion section, two honored guests spoke highly of main speaker’s report and thought.
