Concepts,Objectives,Issues,and Methods:Rethinking the Study of “National Language Ability”
Fan-zhu HU
2023, 55 (6):  1-14.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.001
Abstract ( 50 )   HTML ( 9 )   PDF (888KB) ( 29 )  

Inspired by the concept of “key language” abroad and driven by the trend of “telling good Chinese stories”, “national language ability” has become a hot topic in linguistic research in China in recent years. However, a series of fundamental questions, including what constitutes national language ability, and why and for what national language ability is studied, still need to be reconsidered. Language ability is the ability of human subjects to create and use language symbols for communication and cognitive needs. There are at least three kinds of the “subjects” of modern language ability: individuals, populations and institutions. A country is essentially an “institution” that is “artificially established based on certain principle”. National language ability is the ability of a country to ensure its own development through language. Consisting of the ability to “govern language” and the ability to “govern based on language”, it is an important component of national governance ability. Goal setting determines problem discovery, and problem selection determines method design. The fundamental goal of the study of “national language ability” should be to use language and linguistic research to promote the internal governance of a country, its participation in global governance, and then the harmonious development of the whole society, and the construction of a community with a shared future for mankind. Without an awareness of such fundamental goal, the study of national language ability will easily go astray. Therefore, we need to discover what the problems are in the country’s language mobilization ability, language institutional governance ability, language behavior employment ability, and language knowledge production capacity, and how to solve them. Furthermore, it is necessary to recognize that the top priority in building national language ability is to build an authentic and unprecedented learning-oriented country.

National Discourse Rhetoric,Ethnic Narrative and the Identity Shaping of the New Generation of Chinese Malaysian:A Discourse Analysis Based on Chinese Primary School Textbooks in Malaysia
Xiao-ling FAN
2023, 55 (6):  15-25.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.002
Abstract ( 28 )   HTML ( 8 )   PDF (946KB) ( 20 )  

Reflecting the complex mechanism of identity shaping and the conflict and accumulation of multi-level identity, Chinese primary school textbooks in Malysia constitute an important field for the new generation of Chinese to acquire language and culture and construct ethnic identity, as well as a key field for the formation of civic consciousness and the construction of national identity. Analyzing the discourse of various latest subject textbooks in Chinese primary schools in Malaysia from the perspective of intertextuality, this paper shows that many national discourse strategies, core concepts of high frequency distribution and discourse patterns of intertextuality are strongly shaping the national identity of “citizen-nation” in the new generation of Chinese Malaysian. The ethnic narrative of Chinese unfolds in the context of national narrative. Its narrative subject, narrative structure, cultural mark and discourse approach all indicate that the function of ethnic identity shaping in Malaysian Chinese textbooks is diluted by the powerful rhetoric force of national discourse. In the field of education, the new generation of Chinese are faced with the important issues of how to strike a balance between national identity and ethnic identity, and how to improve the internal cohesion of Chinese ethnic group and inherit Chinese ethnic identity under the premise of national identity.

Embodied Consumption and Emotional Interaction:Chinese Radio Drama from the Perspective of Soundscape
Xiao-ye HAN
2023, 55 (6):  26-35.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.003
Abstract ( 20 )   HTML ( 3 )   PDF (771KB) ( 18 )  

Radio drama, also known as “drama to be enjoyed with ears”, has gone through an evolution from boom to bust in the changes of media. However, in the era of mobile Internet, it has realized a new development through the momentum of media integration. Nowadays, the rise of Internet radio drama has improved the interactivity and immersion of the audience’s listening experience. As a sound art of “accompanying audio”, “embodied consumption” and “emotional interaction”, it constructs a unique “soundscape”. In the process of “auditory turn”, the audience obtains emotional recognition and extends it in the virtual space, replacing “body” with “embodiment”. In this context, radio drama not only needs to pay attention to “what sound”, but also to “how to listen”, and then to the “sound needs” of different groups of people. Moreover, we need to pay attention not only to the construction of soundscape, but also to the significance of soundscape to the shaping of life and life community.

On Mencius’ Classic Hermeneutics
Yu-shun HUANG
2023, 55 (6):  36-47.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.004
Abstract ( 24 )   HTML ( 7 )   PDF (965KB) ( 13 )  

Mencius’ classical hermeneutics is a theoretical system. The tenet of classic interpretation is to defeat the wrong by the right”, that is, “to stop the wrong speech and correct the people’s minds” by discriminating the right from the wrong. The principle of classical interpretation is “to interpret classics according to emotions”, that is, to interpret classics according to the feelings and will of the author and the reader. The understanding of the original meaning of classic is “to meet the heart with the heart”, that is, to meet and understand the emotion and will of the author with that of the reader. The reason why this kind of corresponding is possible is based on “people’s hearts are the same”. The specific steps of interpretation go as follows: firstly, believing that “books cannot be trusted completely”, that is, being skeptical of the expressions in classics; then taking the path of “from the details to the essentials”, that is, to reveal the secret and great significance of the classics through detailed discrimination and argument. The generation of the new meaning of classics is “to give the meaning according to the text”, that is, not only “to capture the meaning from the text”, but also “to give the meaning with the text”, that is, to make classics generate new meaning. The life source of interpretation is “to understand the person through the times”, that is, to understand the author and then his or her work by understanding his or her life. In this regard, Mencius’ classical hermeneutics has reached the state of “pre-subjectivity”. All in all, it is life that creates the “will” of the author and the reader. Only then can understanding the original meaning by “meeting the heart with the heart” and making classics generate new meaning by “giving the meaning with the text” be possible, the interpretation principle of “interpreting classics according to emotions” be implemented, and the interpretation tenet of “stopping the wrong speech and correcting the people’s minds” be realized to serve the world.

The Circulate of the “Four Elements” from the Perspective of Respecting Parents and Honoring the Superior:Approaching DONG Zhong-shu’s “Substance and Refinement of Form Concerning the Reform in the Three Dynasties” from Philosophy of History
Zhi-ping YU
2023, 55 (6):  48-59.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.005
Abstract ( 16 )   HTML ( 4 )   PDF (781KB) ( 13 )  

Approaching DONG Zhong-shu’s “Substance and Refinement of Form Concerning the Reform in the Three Dynasties” in his commentary onThe Spring and Autumn Annals from the Confucian principle of respecting parents and honoring the superior, this paper reveals the theoretical lineage and rich content of the cycle of the four elements of Heaven, earth, substance, and refinement of form. The different trajectories of yin and yang in the Dao of Heaven correspond to the different aspects of monarchs’ government, official systems, and rituals in the human world. Tracing the mysterious images of the saintly monarchs granted by Heaven helps to obtain a reliable basis for the circulation of the four elements. The Shang Dynasty corresponding to substance, and the Zhou Dynasty corresponding to refinement of form, as well as their respective combination with respecting parents and honoring the superior – this constitutes the basic order of the succession of kingship. MOU Zong-san’s Philosophy of History is of great enlightening significance when it explains that honoring the superior goes beyond respecting parents and then elevates honoring the superior to the objective spirit of the nation. However, it also breaks the organic relationship between respecting parents and honoring the superior.

On the Intuitionism in Kant’s Ethics
Bin-yu DONG
2023, 55 (6):  60-70.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.006
Abstract ( 14 )   HTML ( 1 )   PDF (636KB) ( 8 )  

Kant’s ethics is generally regarded as an ethics characterized by rational reasoning, which emphasizes that moral norms need to be established in the procedural process of practical reason based on the freedom of will. Therefore, intuitionism, which is characterized by non-reasoning and non-reflection, is often regarded as incompatible with Kant’s ethics. However, this remains to be discussed. If intuitionism is divided into two basic forms, rationalism and emotionalism, then both are contained in Kant’s moral theory. Kant explicitly or implicitly admits that intuition plays an important and even fundamental role in moral judgment, which does not really conflict with his basic position of rationalism.

On Kant’s Schema Theory in Social Epistemology:From the Perspective of Adorno’s Critical Theory of Culture Industry
Kai-hua LU
2023, 55 (6):  71-79.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.007
Abstract ( 13 )   HTML ( 1 )   PDF (799KB) ( 10 )  

Adorno’s critique of social epistemology based on Marxism is not presented as a complete academic system. It is derived from his analysis of the rational form of modern industrial society in general and culture industry in particular. The cultural industrial production system with mass culture as its commodity content has realized the ideological function of social control and the elimination of cognitive autonomy. It has also realized the idealist epistemology that Kant tried to criticize and limit. In the above picture, Adorno’s critique of culture industry and Kant’s difficulty in transcendental epistemology, that is, the problem of his schema theory, form an intertextual relationship: On the one hand, the social effects of culture industry lead to re-elaborating the social practical implications of Kant’s theory of knowledge; on the other hand, Adorno’s ironic reference to Kant’s schema theory accurately positions the operating mechanism of culture industry to realize social control. In this regard, a social epistemology based on a revised version of Kant’s transcendental knowledge system can obtain a theoretical orientation in the socio-historical totality initiated by the critique of culture industry.

School Social Work in Shanghai from the Perspective of Prevention and Development:Practical Dilemmas and Countermeasures
Chen-xi HUANG, Tian-tong WANG, Jin-yu ZHANG
2023, 55 (6):  80-92.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.008
Abstract ( 17 )   HTML ( 0 )   PDF (1151KB) ( 11 )  

The original intention and direction of school social work development is prevention and development. Analysis based on in-depth interviews and agency service records shows that Shanghai has established a judicial-oriented school social work service model based on the tertiary prevention of crime, and has made remarkable achievements in curbing juvenile delinquency and assisting school development. However, Shanghai also faces many practical difficulties, including the lack of effective connection between the tertiary prevention, the difficulty of breaking double barriers (of administration and technic), and the weak assessment ability of first-line social workers. Such difficulties affect the function of prevention and development of school social work. In the future, Shanghai should seize the opportunity of the promulgation and implementation of the law on the protection of minors and schools, take prevention and development as the orientation, and start from the dimensions of individuals and schools, basic needs and developmental needs to reconstruct the school social work service framework. Here, we should focus on general prevention, promote the internal connection and cohesion between the three levels of service, and pay attention to improving the professional ability of first-line school social workers.

Chen CHENG, Jin-hong DING, Gao-xiang GU, Yang TIAN
2023, 55 (6):  93-104.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.009
Abstract ( 11 )   HTML ( 1 )   PDF (832KB) ( 16 )  

To focus on population spatial equilibrium is to simplify the complexity of population equilibrium according to the outstanding problems in China’s population equilibrium development at the present stage. This study mainly includes the following factors: the population spatial equilibrium from the perspective of the market factors of macroeconomics, the equilibrium of social and economic structure, the spatial equilibrium of population and other factors under the influence of the regulation of natural geographic space, and the population spatial equilibrium of the residential system in the process of urbanization. The spatial equilibrium of population in Chinese context is discussed from the value dimension. This paper also discusses the practical exploration of population spatial equilibrium in China from the aspects of main problems, cause analysis, definition and measurement methods of population spatial equilibrium development in China and other regions. The future study of population spatial equilibrium should return to the essence of equilibrium, and make a scientific and academic exploration of this concept with strong application value from the micro-individual migration behavior. New research methods and analytical tools should be introduced to construct scientific evaluation criteria of population spatial equilibrium. A bridge should be built between the two discourse systems of value and mechanism, and a comprehensive concept of population spatial balance should be established that can link these two dimensions.

The Multidimensional Characteristics and Regulation Strategies of the Elderly Floating Population in Megacities:A Case Study of Shanghai
Lian-xia WU
2023, 55 (6):  105-119.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.010
Abstract ( 14 )   HTML ( 0 )   PDF (1844KB) ( 20 )  

With the aging of the population, the acceleration of the urbanization process, and the change of life concepts and ways, the mobility of the elderly has become an increasingly popular and new phenomenon in big cities. However, the continuous gathering of the elderly in big cities has also brought great challenges to the social and economic development, elderly care service and public management of big cities. Based on the dynamic monitoring data of Shanghai floating population in 2018, this paper adopts mathematical statistics and spatial analysis method and takes Shanghai as an example to deeply explore the multidimensional characteristics of the elderly floating population in China’s big cities in the new era, which can reveal new problems caused by the agglomeration of floating elderly, and propose countermeasures for the management and regulation of the elderly floating population. It can also provide scientific basis for other big cities and even the whole country to manage the elderly floating population and cope with the issue of aging. The study finds that since 2010, the total size of permanent resident population and the size of floating population in Shanghai have begun to slow down simultaneously, while the number of elderly floating population has shown an upward trend, and the sex ratio of floating elderly is low, most of them are young and non-agricultural, the education level is mainly junior middle school and the male is generally higher than the female, and the education level of non-agricultural elderly is much higher than that of agricultural elderly. According to the new characteristics and problems of the elderly floating population in Shanghai, it is necessary to establish many public management and service optimization strategies for the social support of the elderly floating population in Shanghai under the background of the Yangtze River Delta integration strategy.

Xia WANG, Jia-qi WU
2023, 55 (6):  120-138.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.011
Abstract ( 8 )   HTML ( 0 )   PDF (982KB) ( 4 )  

In this paper, individual digital literacy is embedded in enterprise management practice to explore the relationship between managers’ digital literacy and enterprise green technology innovation performance. It shows that the digital literacy of managers is conducive to enterprise green technology innovation. The higher the digital literacy level of senior management team, the better the enterprise green technology innovation performance. Even if the manager does not have the educational background of core digital technology, his work experience in the field of computer, information technology and other core digital technology will help promote the green technology innovation of the enterprise in the later stage. This promotion effect has a heterogeneous effect, which is more significant in the enterprises in regions with low development level of digital economy, high media attention and non-heavy polluting enterprises. Enterprise digital transformation plays an intermediary role between managers’ digital literacy and enterprise green technology innovation. Further research finds that managers’ digital literacy contributes to the enhancement of enterprise value in the future. This study has enriched the research horizon of the upper echelon theory, explored the value and differentiated impact of digital human capital in the new era, and provided micro-level empirical evidence for the green and sustainable development of economy promoted by digital technology.

Xiu-zhen LI, Xia FANG, Zhen-yu YANG, Yun ZHANG
2023, 55 (6):  139-158.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.012
Abstract ( 13 )   HTML ( 1 )   PDF (998KB) ( 8 )  

Green technology innovation of enterprises is an important path to achieve green and low-carbon economic development. The coordinated development of green finance and digital technology is of great significance for green technology innovation and high-quality economic development. This paper introduces green finance and digital technology to expand the endogenous economic growth model, deduces and analyzes the mechanism of the coordinated development of green finance and digital technology to drive green technology innovation of enterprises, and constructs the coordinated development index of green finance and digital technology. Using data from A-share listed companies from 2011 to 2020 for measurement analysis and empirical testing, it is confirmed that the coordinated development of green finance and digital technology can promote green technology innovation. The mechanism test shows that the coordinated development of green finance and digital technology promotes the green technology innovation of enterprises by reducing financial costs and improving the level of assumption of risk. Further analysis finds that for the enterprises located in areas with strong environmental regulations, intellectual property protection, and high initial financial endowment and pollution properties, the role of green finance and digital technology in the development of synergy is more obvious in promoting high-quality green technology innovation in enterprises. To fully leverage the synergistic development of green finance and digital technology to promote green innovation in enterprises in the context of developing the digital economy, it is necessary to build a new digital green finance system, improve the top-level design of green finance, and formulate effective incentive systems for green innovation.

How Platform Leadership Drives R&D Personnel’s Work Involvement:Chain Mediation Model from the Perspective of Interactive Energy
Xi-xi ZHANG, Xing-lin HAO
2023, 55 (6):  159-169.  doi: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.013
Abstract ( 9 )   HTML ( 0 )   PDF (773KB) ( 6 )  

Under the new trend of digital economy, R&D personnel’s work involvement has become an important guarantee for enterprises to improve R&D innovation and environmental adaptability. Based on the new leadership paradigm in the era of knowledge economy, this paper uses interaction ritual chain theory and leader-member exchange theory to construct a chain mediation model in which platform leadership drives R&D personnel’s work involvement. Furthermore, based on the questionnaire data of 317 R&D personnel, this theoretical model is tested by hierarchical regression and Bootstrap method. The findings are as follows: (1) Platform leadership positively affects R&D personnel’s work involvement; (2) Both leader-member exchange and relational energy play a mediating effect between platform leadership and R&D personnel’s work involvement; (3) Leader-member exchange and relational energy play a chain mediating role between platform leadership and R&D personnel’s work involvement. The above conclusions extend the research achievements of interaction ritual chain theory, and provide new inspiration for enterprises to stimulate innovation and creativity from the perspective of employee energy activation.
