Abstract

If Liuzhou is to continue to grow, it will have to develop the intellectual capacity to create and support a new and different kind of economy. One that can protect and restore the environment while managing and promoting both urbanization and industrial productivity to meet the growing aspirations of the entire population of Guangxi. The core values of the Chinese nation are benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom, and trust. These ideals define traditional virtue in China and they remain the basis of contemporary social morality. Many understandings have been distilled overtime into what are today the four principal building blocks of traditional Chinese people’s wisdom: (1) Dadaozhijian meaning to simplify complicated truths; (2) Dazhiruoyu meaning a man with great wisdom appears slow-witted; (3) Yourongnaida meaning a wide heart embraces all; and (4) Shangshanruoshui meaning the highest level of good deeds that like water benefits to all things without struggle. Rapid economic development now forces Liuzhou to make a difficult economic transition from of the techniques and knowledge of past scientific and technical revolutions to what we refer as the wisdom-based economy. In order to move forward and avoid being marginalized, Liuzhou must find a new way. The poster builds off of the core values to illustrate how they might be used to create a better future by using traditional wisdom to redirect and invigorate scientific and cultural understandings and develop new educational and industrial models.

This presentation received a College of the Sciences Best Poster Presentation Award for 2014.
