Professor Yu delivered his speech on The political analysis of the traditional Chinese society.

Professor Yu delivered his speech, The political analysis of the traditional Chinese society, by analyzing the internal logic between traditional Chinese society and bureaucratic system. He pointed out that thebureaucratic system,  as the mainstream value of traditional Chinese society,  was a severe barrier to our society and the process of capitalism. The power-led resource distribution system affected every corner of people’s life, including social manners, values and cultures. This mindset remains harmful until today.

This hard-edged and humorous speech attracted a large audience. All seats were occupied an hour before it started. Levgeniia Rozhenko, a Ukrainian student from the Political Science and Public Administration School, said the lecture was very helpful for her to gain knowledge about the political aspects of the traditional Chinese society.
