ABSTRACT

On 8th July, 2016, Korean government decided to deploy THADD to the South Korea. This decision created the tension between Korea and China for both the people and the government. What makes these situation worse and makes the solution of these problem difficult is the fact that we, Koreans are blinded by internalized idea from the West, represented by the United States. The modern world was constructed by the West, and we have been taking China as just one stated of this modern world. In this idea, we take it for granted that China is inferior to the United Stated and the West, so we look at matters from a biased point of view and make decisions biasedly. But now China have entered the stage to reconstruct the World under their own traditional view of world, that is the view of Tianxia(天下). Under this circumstance, we have to study China in the humanistic way in order to understand matters precisely, to make our own view and to resolve problems autonomously. This study includes two fields, one is Chinese traditional view of world and their cultural tradition, the other is socialism in China, which have made their modernized tradition.
