LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in English; abstract also in Chinese.
The paper will attempt first to define humanics from the Springfield College and Western perspectives, followed by the Chinese perspectives.
The perception and application of the humanics philosophy in the Chinese culture would be discussed in terms of the traditional and contemporary cultures. It was then highlighted by presenting the biography of John Ma (1882-1966), a Springfield College alumnus in the 1920s, and his role model in the promotion and delivery of the humanics philosophy at Tsinghua University and Mainland China. The possible role of the 2008 Beijing Olympics in promoting better international understanding and world peace was elaborated and future strategies to promoting the "study of man in his wholeness" and the humanics philosophy of the College were also presented.
