    A New “Brand” Story:On Value Creation Mechanism in the Rapid Internationalization Process of Digital Enterprises
    Hui XU, Yi SUN, Qi ZHOU, Xin-yu ZHU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 134-153.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.013

    In the process of rapidly expanding into the international market, digital enterprises have shaped competitive advantages in the global market by forming unique value creation methods, narrating a brand-new corporate story. This article focuses on the rapid internationalization process of social digital enterprise “TikTok” and transactional digital enterprise “Shein”, and explores the value creation mechanism of digital enterprises from the perspective of LLL theory. It shows that firstly, connectivity is a key entry point for digital enterprises to quickly expand into international markets, forming a prerequisite for value creation. The differentiation of business attributes determines the goals and types of connectivity. Social digital enterprises are centered around relational connectivity, while transactional digital enterprises are centered around resource connectivity. Secondly, different types of connectivity affect the logic of value creation actions in digital enterprises. Among them, digital enterprises with relational connections as the entry point are based on the “leverage learning” action logic of massive user participation, with a focus on attracting overseas users to interact and participate, forming scalable digital relationships, and shaping a diverse value network; the digital enterprise that takes resource connectivity as the entry point is based on the “learning leverage” action logic of platform model innovation, with a focus on upgrading platform models through experiential learning, which can support the implementation of composite leverage strategies and achieve simple innovation value creation. The theoretical framework ultimately formed in this article can contribute to the theoretical gap caused by insufficient exploration of value creation paths in the rapid internationalization process of digital enterprises in existing literature, and further extend the application scope of LLL theory.

    On the Mechanism of Decriminalization of Misdemeanor Cases:Practice,Logic and Path
    Wen-jun DU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 81-94.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.009
    Abstract258)   HTML11)    PDF (784KB)(397)      

    Misdemeanor legislation fundamentally promotes major changes in the criminal structure, and constructing a mechanism of decriminalization for the special attributes of misdemeanors is the core issue to adapting to the modernization of crime governance. It is important to seek legislative solutions to solve problems, but it is even more critical to respect reality and explore existing normative systems. Since the current misdemeanor legislation has been formed, it is necessary to rationally realize that the promotion of the establishment of the mechanism of decriminalization of misdemeanors is supported by firm policy logic, sufficient practical logic, and internal theoretical logic. Therefore, in terms of governance concepts, it is necessary to complete the transformation from positive justice to negative justice, from guilt thinking to not-guilt thinking; in terms of substantive norms, we shall activate the existing normative crime function, and strengthen the role of rules such as saving clause and conviction but Exemption from Punishment causes in the governance of misdemeanors; in terms of procedural settings, we shall take the reform of the existing system as an opportunity to deeply explore the value of independent decriminalization such as discretionary non-prosecution.

    The Impact of Collaborative Development of Green Finance and Digital Technology on Enterprise Green Technology Innovation
    Xiu-zhen LI, Xia FANG, Zhen-yu YANG, Yun ZHANG
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (6): 139-158.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.012
    Abstract250)   HTML10)    PDF (998KB)(115)      

    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.

    Empire’s “Blue Highways”:Space Imagination in Commentary on the Waterways Classic
    Xiaofei Tian
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2024, 56 (1): 38-56.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2024.01.005
    Abstract222)   HTML18)    PDF (1233KB)(228)      

    To elucidate its meaning and significance, a reconstruction of the textual ecology of Li Daoyuan’s Commentary on the Waterways Classic (Shuijing Zhu) from two angles will be conducive: the first is highlighting the commentarial nature of Li’s work, which draws attention to the constraints faced by the commentator as well as to the creative potential of a commentary relating to the primary text; the second is putting Li’s work in conversation with contemporary southern poetic writings on landscape to illuminate its special mode of space perception and representation. Li constructs an infrastructure of rivers based on an imperial vision. Although the empire was largely imaginary at this historical juncture, the riverine system is a powerful emblem of the medieval Sui and Tang polities, whose great canals supplemented the rivers.

    Opensource Knowledge Production in the Age of Large Language Models:Opportunities,Challenges,and the Future
    Lihao Gan
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2024, 56 (2): 31-41.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2024.02.004
    Abstract217)   HTML13)    PDF (1381KB)(178)      

    With the rise of Large Language Models, the field of opensource knowledge production will witness a new transformation. Large Language Models have positive impacts on opensource knowledge production while they also bring potential challenges. On the one hand, Large Language Models significantly improve the efficiency of opensource knowledge generation and dissemination by adapting to Cunningham’s Law of the opensource community, providing round-the-clock newcomer knowledge training support, and correcting the systematic bias of knowledge production through domain-based construction strategies; on the other hand, Large Language Models have brought about the phenomenon of hallucination, copyright risk, digital exploitation, and the intensification of the trend of “dead internet”, which poses a serious threat to the verification, legitimacy, values, and ecological environment of opensource knowledge. Thus, we should strengthen the core role of human cognitive experience in guiding the technology development of Large Language Models, and explore solutions through practice, in order to realize the harmonious coexistence and common progress of knowledge production of Large Language Models and opensource knowledge production.

    The Multidimensional Characteristics and Regulation Strategies of the Elderly Floating Population in Megacities:A Case Study of Shanghai
    Lian-xia WU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (6): 105-119.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.010
    Abstract198)   HTML9)    PDF (1844KB)(220)      

    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.

    Concepts,Objectives,Issues,and Methods:Rethinking the Study of “National Language Ability”
    Fan-zhu HU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (6): 1-14.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.001
    Abstract197)   HTML23)    PDF (888KB)(221)      

    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
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (6): 15-25.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.002
    Abstract189)   HTML22)    PDF (946KB)(231)      

    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.

    Exploring the Internationalization Path of Chinese “Specialized,Special New” Manufacturing Firms:A Multi-Case Study Based on Ansoff Matrix
    Si-qing PENG, Yuan GAO, Rui WANG
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 154-169.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.014
    Abstract179)   HTML11)    PDF (996KB)(182)      

    Internationalization is an important driving force for the ongoing expansion of “Specialized, Special New” firms. Based on case studies of Uniview, Jinzhou, and SinoHyTec, we discover that industry maturity level, differences in domestic and international demand, and firm-specific technological capabilities all influence initial path choices for internationalization, as explained by the combination of the contingency theory and Ansoff matrix. When the industry is mature, the disparities between domestic and international demand are modest, and the firm has a technological advantage, the firm prioritizes accessing international new markets with current goods, following the “market development” path. When the industry is mature, the differences in domestic and international demands are significant, and the firm is well endowed with technology but mismatched with international market demand, it needs to develop new products before going international, adopting the “product development” path. When the firm operates in an emerging industry with untapped domestic and international demands and needs to leverage global knowledge and resources to establish technological capabilities, a global R&D network becomes paramount, and the “technology cooperation” path should be adopted. As internationalization progresses, contingency factors may change, and internationalization paths will be dynamically modified.

    Abstract178)   HTML25)    PDF (532KB)(136)      

    The development of AI is of positive significance to human beings. In general, the development of science and technology, including AI, is both a necessary step in the gradual realization of humanity and human freedom, and a prerequisite or condition for approaching this prospect. AI is based on big data. Logically speaking, “big data” means exhausting relevant information. So, under the background of big data, we can grasp all possible aspects of the situation, at least in theory, which provides a premise or condition for a comprehensive grasp of the object, and consequently we may overcome various one-sided views. Another important feature of AI is the ability to process data efficiently, which makes it possible for us to respond to changing phenomena and make accurate judgments and responses in a timely manner. The positive significance of the development of AI is reflected in scientific research, the exploration of humanities, production labor, economic activities, and daily life, and its evolution has positive significance for promoting the progress of human life and tending to a society conforming to human nature. Of course, the development of science and technology can lead to both positive aspects and some negative effects. How to restrain the negative effects that AI may cause and make it develop in a positive way is an issue that we cannot avoid. This involves the issue of value guidance and constraints on the development of science and technology, including AI, and the value principle that man is the purpose provides the basic premise for such guidance.

    Modernization with Chinese Characteristics in Urban Community Governance:Theoretical Logic,Model Transformation and Future Trend
    Wei Xu, Bowei Liu
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2024, 56 (3): 114-124.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2024.03.011
    Abstract178)   HTML10)    PDF (611KB)(30)      

    Under the context of modernization with Chinese characteristics, the community ushers in a new stage of development and change with “the last one kilometer” policy. The model of community governance has also realized the transformation from “governance by community” to “governance in community” at the micro level. The model of “governance by community” with the main feature of the “interconnection of three social organizations” integrates community autonomy and social power, and revitalizes community social resources in the new era of community development. However, it also shows its shortcomings in terms of work ability and undertaking ability. Therefore, under the new situation, we should play the field role of “governance in community”, which is characterized by multiple elements’ participating in governance and fine management, and then explore the future trend of modernization with Chinese characteristics in urban community governance. To realize the transformation and upgrading of the community governance model from “governance by community” to “governance in community”, it is necessary to take the guidance in Party building as the fundamental guarantee, take the people-centered as the basic compliance, take the resilient governance community as the best path, and take digital and intelligent governance technology as the important way. We will continue to improve the urban governance community model of people, modernity and sociality and ultimately realize modernization with Chinese characteristics in urban community governance according to China’s own situation.

    The Influence of Cultural Equity,Brand-Nation Connection and Perceived Brand Globality on Brand Attitudes
    Jia-xun HE, Jing-yi HU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 118-133.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.012
    Abstract169)   HTML7)    PDF (881KB)(229)      

    In the context of brand globalization and anti-globalization, taking Chinese consumers’ attitudes towards Japanese brands as the research object, we empirically analyze the influence mechanism of cultural equity, brand-nation connection on brand attitudes through the perceived brand globality. The results show that cultural equity have a significant positive impact on consumer brand attitudes through the variable from nation association to brand. In addition, cultural equity also positively affects the perceived brand globality through the variable from brand association to nation, and then influences consumer brand attitudes. The above results theoretically promote the research on the mechanism of brand-nation connection. In practice, it has direct strategic enlightenment for Chinese leading enterprises in how to carry out brand construction under the new “double circular” development pattern, that is, to develop into a strong brand with national status, and further realize brand globalization on this basis. The establishment of national brand status can be achieved by inheriting and developing excellent traditional Chinese culture, making it the cultural equity of the brand, and actively promoting the strength of brand-nation connection.

    Analysis of the Relationship between International Humanitarian Law and International Human Rights Law in Armed Conflicts
    Guo-qiang LUO, Jin-lan XU
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 65-80.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.008
    Abstract167)   HTML5)    PDF (854KB)(374)      

    According to the Pufendorf’s system of Natural Law Theory, international law is a set of absolute natural obligations to others, and state relations are based on a balance between the free exercise of natural rights and the observance of moral obligations. The trade-off between military necessity and humanitarian considerations on the part of parties and combatants in armed conflicts is one manifestation of this. They are not only bound by international humanitarian law, but also rely on natural law to guide their actions. The relationship between international humanitarian law and international human rights law is an important issue when the legal vacuum comes out. The conflict between Russia and Ukraine further reflects the urgency of this issue. In situations of armed conflicts, to choose the hostilities paradigm or the law enforcement paradigm to apply with priority based on a comprehensive consideration of the various elements of the facts is the key to using the principle of “lex specialis derogat legi generali” to distinguish between international humanitarian law and international human rights law. In most cases, there is no real normative conflict between international humanitarian law and international human rights law, and the two can be applied in parallel. Which can become the lex specialis to be applied preferentially, then needs concrete analyses. In addition, the principle of “lex specialis derogat legi generali” can also provide an operational and objective analysis framework for military commanders who need to make values trade-offs and policy choices in practice. According to the above-mentioned theory, China can put forward reasonable proposals from three aspects, i.e., legal compliance, accountability and improvement of norms, in order to deal with the humanitarian crisis and humanitarian consequences brought about by armed conflicts.

    The Cultural Identity of the Chen Dynasty’s Monarch and the Existence of the Political Tradition of the Southern Dynasties
    Lei LI
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 25-34.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.004
    Abstract153)   HTML13)    PDF (903KB)(220)      

    The foundation of the Chen Dynasty together with the rising of the noble aboriginal families in the south, was regarded as a major political and social transformation in the three-hundred period of the Eastern Jin Dynasty and the Southern Dynasties. All the emperors of Chen Dynasty, however, chose to identify with the aristocracy culture. The reason is related to CHEN’s family background. CHEN Ba-xian’s position in the Liang Dynasty was once close to that of an exclusive serviceman or a military household, but he still belonged to the aristocracy class. Emperor Wen in the CHEN family listed himself among the literati and scholars, and designated celebrities in the aristocracy class to accompany his sons day and night to cultivate them with the noble demeanor and cultural self-restraint. The crown prince of Emperor Xuan personally handled the affairs of the Eastern Palace according to the political culture of the aristocracy. As a result, the CHEN family’s identification of the aristocratic culture in the Chen Dynasty evolved from the recognition of manners and knowledge to that of political tradition. This contributes to the fact that the character of the regime of the Chen Dynasty was similar to that of the Jin, Song, Qi and Liang Dynasties and the political tradition of the Southern Dynasties was inherited.

    The Roles of AI in Productivity
    Quan-min LI
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 6-12.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.002
    Abstract152)   HTML18)    PDF (557KB)(219)      

    The breakthrough progress in AI has provided strong new impetus for the development of social productivity. AI can play multiple important and special roles in the productivity. As a component of the primary productivity, AI is becoming a powerful driving force for other scientific and technological research, and so is the “meta-productivity” of the primary productivity. Among the various elements of productivity, AI is not only a labor tool, but also can play the role of workers as AI agents to achieve the shift of productivity. It can be expected that as AI drives the continuous development of productivity, human society will enter a new era that focus on experience.

    An Alternative Philosophical Interpretation Concerning AI
    Mao-tang DAI, Hong-mei Zhao
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 13-24.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.003
    Abstract146)   HTML14)    PDF (763KB)(221)      

    As to overcoming the imperfection of human beings, technology is the most direct and useful instrument which can meet the goal, so it is positive in this sense. If AI is treated only as technology, it will be regarded as an instrument which meets some goal, only a machine apparatus with high intelligence and a technological unit at higher and stronger level, which exhibits extraordinary technological advantage. However, logically speaking, the intelligence level of AI is impossible to be higher than that of human beings. Technology is a sword with double blades, with its positivity and negativity. While the technology of AI is “overcoming” the imperfection of human beings, new imperfection of human beings will be lighted, which will harm the dignity of human beings and makes man worry about future. The more AI technology wants to help human beings embrace and win “future”, the more the man will lose some kind of ability and even “the future” when he gets the help. The seed of alienation is hidden in the instrumental nature of technology. The most prominent expression of the negative side of technology in this point is that the technology which is developed by human hands will bring the growing-up of human beings into the fate of self-negation. The AI is the metaphor of the life of Sisyphus: the significance and victory of the life is exhibited by the way of self-negation.

    Sou Shen Ji and the Narratives of Disasters and Alchemy in “Official History”
    Qing-hua WANG
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (5): 48-56.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.05.006
    Abstract139)   HTML6)    PDF (723KB)(237)      

    By analyzing the similarities, connections, and intertextuality between Sou Shen Ji and related text genres, we can resort the historical and cultural context and grasp the textual ofSou Shen Ji. When Sou Shen Ji was written, it summarized the narrative traditions and writing modes of official history, miscellaneous biographies, works of ancient philosophers, and novels, forming a diversified text nature. Sou Shen Ji and “official history” collected materials from each other, which concentrate in the Record of Five Elements and the Biography of Alchemists, typically reflecting the disaster narratives system and the writing mode of alchemy. It was related to the mainstream ideology of catastrophe theory and the study of mathematics and alchemist activities. With the development of the theory of catastrophe, numerology culture and “official history”, people in the Song Dynasty began to regard Sou Shen Ji as a novel of ghost stories that was separate from political culture.

    The Subject Status,Rights,Responsibilities and Obligations of Intelligent Robots
    Weiping Sun
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2024, 56 (1): 1-8.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2024.01.001
    Abstract138)   HTML21)    PDF (634KB)(138)      

    The rapid growth of intelligent robots in terms of intelligence, especially their autonomous behavior, contains huge uncertainties and risks. It has directly shaken the sole subject status of human beings, and there has been explicit or implicit competition between human beings and intelligent robots in certain fields for subject status, governance and dominance. Intelligent robots may demand new “identities” and claim rights previously reserved for humans. At the same time, they should also assume the responsibilities and obligations that match their “identities” and rights. Facing the revolutionary and subversive new issues such as intelligent robots’ subject status, rights, responsibilities and obligations, we must thoroughly reflect on and clean up the existing positions, theories and methods, and take advantage of the rapid development and rich application scenarios of intelligent technology to seek a substantive solution to the problems through critical and revolutionary theoretical innovation.

    Embodied Consumption and Emotional Interaction:Chinese Radio Drama from the Perspective of Soundscape
    Xiao-ye HAN
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2023, 55 (6): 26-35.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2023.06.003
    Abstract137)   HTML18)    PDF (771KB)(180)      

    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.

    The Misconception and the Future Perspective of the Emergence Theory of AI Consciousness
    Feng Wang
    Journal of East China Normal University (Philosophy and Social Sciences)    2024, 56 (2): 1-7.   DOI: 10.16382/j.cnki.1000-5579.2024.02.001
    Abstract137)   HTML17)    PDF (542KB)(113)      

    Does AI have consciousness? Or is it possible for AI to have consciousness in the future? This is a question that seems a bit difficult to answer. The emergence theory seems to provide a positive answer. However, an examination of the conceptual structure of the emergence theory shows that the emergence theory of AI consciousness is more of a misunderstanding caused by the continuous transformation of concepts and fails to confirm any true emergence of consciousness. The emergence theory is beneficial in the sense that it encourages our society to embrace AI more tolerantly, viewing it as an organic existence rather than a simple machine. What the emergence theory deals with is not an ontological problem, but a practical problem that includes the perspective of future speculation. Whether the future recognizes the existence of AI consciousness can only be determined by the people who are closest to the future. So, the emergence theory of AI consciousness is not only a matter of technology and substantive objects, but also a matter of cultural concepts.
