  • Ouyang Kang


Global humanity is facing increasingly complex problems. Foremost is the complexity of values and value conflicts. How can we effectively face these various challenges and great difficulties coming from our complex global situation? This paper contends that we should learn and borrow from many histories, traditions and cultures. There is no single way or single wisdom that can resolve the complex problems in the world we are facing now. This paper will also appeal to the insights of the Chinese tradition. It also calls for a more complex model of thinking.
