Image Thinking: The Cultural-Psychological Underpinning of Chinese Patients'Somatic Propensity

LV Xiao-Kang,WANG Xin-Jian,

心理学报 , 2012,
Abstract: Under a cultural psychological perspective, the high somatization report rate among Chinese clients is a reasonable phenomenon that has long and deep cultural roots. In lack of the cultural knowledge that underpinned the cultural-psychological structure of a particular nation, one would find it hard to understand the diverse dimensions of a medical phenomenon. The disputes concerning somatization provide a typical case that we could recognize the paradox and limitation of modern medicine and find alternate accounts. Image thinking is the prototype of traditional Chinese thoughts. Differing form the western logic thinking, it is an anthropomorphic, analogous thinking paradigm that reveres the notion of Tian Ren He Yi, the self-evident harmonic corresponding relations between the structure, physiological functions, pathological changes of the human body as microcosm and the change of the nature environments and social world as a macrocosm. All existing elements in the world are supposed to be orderly interconnected via the force of Yin, Yang, and Five Elements. The disorder of natural and social forces is considered as the final cause of human disease and the ultimate source of all disasters and unhappiness. Human body is part of the interconnected world and thus is subject to disturbance from all possible natural and social forces. It is not only a biological body, but also reflects one’s thoughts, emotions, and other psychological aspects. Human diseases, therefore, cannot be distinguished as physical diseases or psychological diseases, since they are interchangeable and almost occur simultaneously. Traditional Chinese Medicine also employs image thinking to explain, diagnose and cure diseases. According to the classic TCM theory, internal organs are centers of all psychological and physiological functions and emotions are regarded as important etiological factors of mental and physical illness. However, once physiological functions are disturbed, the logical methods of treatment become physiological or pharmacological interventions, together with certain psychological interventions. Though psychological interventions mainly serve as supplementary treatments, it is clear that body and mind are always treated together in the categorization and treatment of diseases, which is a distinct feature of TCM. A typical TCM practitioner is thus a physiological doctor and a psychotherapist simultaneously. He or she is suppose to listen to a patient’s chief complaint carefully and examine the patient’s symptom with a holistic view by asking the patient’s living habits, diet, stress, sexual life, etc. A doctor is supposed to speculate the real factors underlying the apparent symptoms through looking, listening, asking, and touching, and the patient should be assigned with a customized treatment both pharmaceutically or psychologically. A practitioner that only detect and treat the bodily symptoms are usually referred as inferior doctors, while eminent doctors
Ontology and the Other: Reflection on “Intangible Cultural Heritabilization冶 of Folk Belief in Contemporary Chinese Society

- , 2017,
Abstract: 民间信仰与非物质文化遗产多有粘连,或直接孕育非物质文化遗产的生成,或为非物质文化遗产传承创新提供滋养的源泉。 21 世纪以来,非物质文化遗产保护在中国迅速全面铺开,为传统民间信仰的当代存续提供了正当性的理据,也拓展了民间信仰价值彰显的社会空间。 然而,在“文化求纯冶价值理念的支使下,非物质文化遗产保护往往成为“净化冶文化遗产的过程,以至于民间信仰由非物质文化遗产的“本体冶成为非物质文化遗产保护中的“他者冶。 坚持非物质文化遗产的本真性、整体性保护,必须正视民间信仰之于非物质文化遗产“活态性冶传承的意义,也要正确认识和把握民间信仰文化的流动性、自主性特征,以科学的历史观和文化观建构当代中国民间信仰文化生态系统。
Folk beliefs are mostly have adhesion to intangible cultural heritage, it could directly pregnant with intangible cultural heritage, or could be the source of nourishment for the inheritance and innovation of intangible cultural heritage. Since the new century, the protection of intangible cultural heritage in China has been spread out rapidly and comprehen-sively which provided justification for legitimacy of traditional folk beliefs’ viability in the contemporary society , the social space which demonstrated on folk beliefs’ value was also be expanded.

Journal of Library and Information Science , 2010,
Abstract: The history of the Yongle Dadian’s[1] creation, near total destruction, its wanton dispersal, its promising reprinting and possible digitization, is but one example of a fascinating cultural treasure worth studying. As this paper will show, even the partial recovery of an artifact brings to light the significant contribution of a culture, a time, and a people. The author will trace the course of the Yonele Dadian over 600 years. From the original compilation during the fif-teenth century Ming Dynasty to the burning and looting of the prestigious Hanlin Academy where it was held during the 1900 Siege of Peking. The function and rising importance of the Hanlin Academy as a cultural repository of Chinese scholarship will be discussed. In addition, relying on siege diaries and other primary source materials, the author will present what occurred on that fateful day of June 23, 1900 when the Hanlin Academy was reduced to ashes and its contents looted. Lastly, the author will conclude with the recent reclamation efforts of the Yongle Dadian and touch upon the role of libraries as repositories of intellectual heritage and cultural record. 永樂大典的編作起源幾近毀壞,肆意分散的歷史,以及翻印與數位化的可能性,使它成為值得研究的文化寶藏。誠如本文之呈現,即使是部分古籍的修復,也能對文化、時代以及民族作出重要貢獻。作者將追溯永樂大典六百多年的歷史,從十五世紀明朝時原典的編纂,到西元1900年間,北京被圍攻時,永樂大典的貯藏地「翰林書院」被焚燒以及劫掠。本文也將討論翰林書院作為貯藏中國學術成就的功用和重要性。此外,根據北京圍攻的紀錄和其他文獻,作者也將陳述西元1900年6月23日當天翰林書院被焚燒與劫掠的過程。結論中,將討論近來為收復永樂大典所做的努力,以及探討圖書館在貯藏人文遺產和古蹟的角色。 “It is (as difficult) as sieving the sand for gold, or scouting the sea for dia-monds.” Yongle Emperor Zhu Di (in preface to Yongle Dadian, 1408). 頁次:82-91

PORTAL : Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies , 2007,
Abstract: The debate on Chinse cultural nationalism, as on nationalism in general, is often polarised by a number of theoretical positions, value judgements, practical concerns and methodological choices. While there is no consensus that cultural nationalism has developed into a formidable force in China, few would deny that it has been on the rise since June 4, 1989, and that it is a cultural-political movement with no parallel in the People’s Republic, except perhaps for the period following May 4, 1919. Of central concern in this special issue of PORTAL Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies are the manifestations of cultural nationalism, the causation of its resurgence in post-Tiananmen China, and the ways in which it is likely to impact on China’s future development.
