A New Book

Book cover - Yang Rui - Chinese idea of a university - Pheonix reborn
In The Chinese Idea of a University: Phoenix Reborn by Hong Kong University Press, Rui Yang conceptualises the cultural foundations of modern university development in Chinese societies. Instead of focusing on the uniqueness of the societies, this book aims to prove that one educational purpose could be fulfilled via many paths, and that most of the characteristics the university had could be found in other institutions of higher learning. Citing the practices of four selected Chinese societies, namely Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore, Yang opposes the existence of an impassable chasm between Chinese and Western ideas of a university and argues that it is possible to combine Chinese and Western ideas of a university.
Rui Yang is a Professor and the Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Education at The University of Hong Kong.
