China has undergone a unique path of development in the post-Maoist era. Especially the last decade witnessed China's rapid rise to economic wealth and superpower status vis-a-vis the severe developmental predicaments of the West (financial crises socio-political turbulences etc.). This book analyzes how the leading Chinese thinkers understand China's prosperity and rapid development today and whether there is any hidden mechanism that has been playing a crucial role of forming contemporary Chinese thinkers' shared passionate endeavor of resuscitating classical Chinese ideas and thus shows how the fervor for discovering 'essential characteristics' of Chinese thought reveals a hidden psychological mechanism.
