1, A Study on Jurgen Habermas’ Scientific and Technological Theory, World History, 2001, No.2.
Abstract In his theory, Habermas revealed the quintessence of scientific and technological changes, pointing out the dual functions of science and technology in the advanced capitalistic states. He deduced that in later period of capitalism, technology and science become “a leading productive force”, and at the same time, they also act “as a background ideology”. He drew a conclusion that the interdependence of science and technology as well as the state intervention into research were two prerequisites to these dual functions. The interdependence made science and technology into an organic whole, and the state intervention made them into a real leading productive force. Thus these two factors together let science and technology perform a kind of ideological function.
2, The Transformation from Internalism to Externalism: Studies outside china on Science, Technology and High-Technology After WWⅡ, Journal of Peking University(Humanities and Social Sciences), 2002, No., 3.
Abstract This paper is to explore the great transformation from internalism to externalism in the field of science and technology studies post world war two. Internal studies are just limited to the science and technology field itself, but external studies more emphasize the interaction between science, technology and society. This paper focuses on the achievements which are mostly specialized in advanced sciences, high technologies and their impacts on modern and post-modern societies researched by scholars outside china from various realms, such as history,sociology, economics, etc.. By appraising those works, the paper aims at proving that the transformation to externalism is an inexorable trend, it is in accordance with the ongoing of history.
3, New Structural Change of the “Research and Development” System in the U.S. after WWⅡ, Studies in Science of Science, 2002, No., 4.
Abstract The phrase of “Research and Development” reflects the combination of advanced science, technology and economy. It has given birth to many new industries based on science, such as computer and biobusiness and what like, which are playing more and more important roles in societies. In general, the United States is the most developed country in this world as far as science and high technology are concerned. It is due to the rationalized structure of the “research and development” system transformed after world war two. This transformation, on the one hand, helped to make science, technology and economic circles develop interdependently, and on the other hand, has brought dramatic changes to the roles of governments, universities and industries participated in research and development activities.
4, Vocational and technical education in Latin America and China: Historical and comparative perspectives, Institute of Latin American Studies, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Working Paper, 2007, No., 1.
Abstract Vocational and technical education (VTE) is an important component of educational system both in Latin America and in China. It takes several forms, such as formal, alternative formal, non-formal, informal and so forth. Due partly to the different historical and cultural context, Latin American countries and China have their own characteristics in VTE development patterns. But they have experienced similarly long and rough developmental path in the history of VTE, and face the same challenges to develop VTE in a more constructive way in the near future.
5, Historical Evolution of the National Innovation System in Latin America, Journal of Latin American Studies, 2004, No., 2, 3.
Abstract Latin American scholars integrated their research on the National Innovation System(NIS) with the realities of their nation’s pursuit of the development model in the area of science and technology. Raul Prebisch believed that the industrial countries, or the center, benefited more from the advance of modern technology than the developing nations, or the periphery. The rapid the technological progress, the wider the gap between the center and the periphery. Maria Inês Bastos said that a nation’s capability in the field of basic research is the focus of its NIS, and the government plays an important role in strengthening this capability by undertaking the role of designing proper policy and making investment in related infrastructures. She also noted that a tripartite model of combining the government, the private sector and foreign capital might be applied by all the developing countries.
Latin America’s NIS has undergone through three stages: 1) From the 1950s to the 1960s, the governments officially established science and technology ministries. 2) From the 1960s to the end of 1980s, more scientific research organizations emerged and policies for the development of national innovation started to take shape in more countries. 3) From the 1990s onward, with the ongoing liberalization reforms, the NIS started to take on some new characteristics.
