Theoretical Innovation of Culture and International Relations: A Comparative Study Based on Rationality and Relationship (Abstract)

 

Qin Yaqing

 

If the soul of social sciences theory is a firm theoretical core shaped by culture or common background knowledge, then it must have a local imprint. Its development will make the theory itself transcend its initial local characteristics, but its cultural imprint will not disappear. The world today has witnessed major historical changes, most notably the rise of groups in non-Western countries. The world has becoming pluralistic, and international relations have become a practice in a global context. Correspondingly, on the occasion of its centenary, international relations has begun to consciously move toward a globally significant discourse system and narrative appeal. This is a big change in a century. If the international relations in the global sense emerged in the midst of tremendous changes, an important symbol is undoubtedly the rise of non-Western international relations theory, and non-western cultural resources provide a wealth of intellectual resources for this important development.
