„Beneath the discussion and clarification of problems, of
which both sides
agreed to have them in common and which are documented in this volume, one
of the important insights on both sides had been disagreements depending
on a different way in seeing, articulating and reflecting on these
problems. So, the English term `science‘, in differing from the German
`Wissenschaft‘ (which includes not only sciences of nature, but also
humanities), is meant in the Western tradition as the `uninterested‘
research for truth, especially for most general laws; but the Chinese
understanding seems to be characterized by an immediate connection of
science and its practical use.“
