Death of Agricultural Civilization and the Regeneration of Projection Civilization
Zhu Dake;Research Center of Cultural Criticism, Tongji University;
Chinese agricultural civilization has perished. What exists now in China is a projection of western civilization, also known as the projection civilization. The early Chinese agricultural civilization was controlled by the West Axis, while the late one was controlled by the East Axis in the coastal areas. But fettered by the continental doctrine and Confucianism, the East Axis failed to promote the transformation of agricultural civilization. Thus, it irreversibly declined and perished at the end of the 19th century.
