When trying to understand the Chinese history within the context of global history after the sixteenth century, we can see a certain phenomenon of modern knowledge called global travel including westward transmission of Song school, eastward learning of Western culture, Chinese introduction of Oriental learning and the imitation of Soviet Russia. The first introduction of Chinese knowledge into Europe through Jesuits at the end of the sixteenth century affected the way how Enlightenment philosophers vision both China and the world. This was partly the result of westward transmission of Song school. Following the nineteenth century, Western culture promoted by those foreigners in China had shaped modern Chinese people’s cognition of themselves and others. Therefore, the following state-building of modern China was certainly the outcome of this Western learning. Then the moving of massive intellectuals to Japan after the first Sino-Japanese War had also accelerated the transmission of Western learning from Japan including those Western studies which had been transmitted to Japan through its initial promotion in China. Therefore, Chinese introduction of those Oriental studies after the war was actually a return journey of knowledge. Finally, the ideology of socialism introduced to China at the beginning of twentieth century imitated the model which had already been practiced by the Soviet Russia, thus shaping the profile of modern China in a context of Revolution.

This volume will focus on transcultural concepts which emerged in early modern China, Japan and Korea. In the background of social-political revolution between the 19th and 20th century, western ideas combined with local thinking condensing in certain basic concepts. These concepts had clearly greater influence on the political and social evolution of modern China while their dissemination and usage spread all over East Asia, i.e., the cultural sphere of Chinese characters. Interdisciplinary methodologies will be favorable in order to explain semantic meanings, social structure and historical context which had been promoted and developed by German Begriffsgeschichte studies, the English Cambridge school and the theme les mots et les choses in France. Our goal is to accommodate those methodologies along with their concerns on conceptual history to the Asian world, especially China between the 16th and 20th centuries.
