After completing my dissertation in 2008, which focused on the history of phenomenological psychology using Husserlian phenomenology, I became concerned about the postcolonial intellectual environment. In response, I turned to the ideas of later Merleau-Ponty to study common cultivation practices. This negative experience with postcolonialism led me to re-engage with traditional Chinese self-cultivation. Drawing on the theories of late Merleau-Ponty, late Foucault, and psychoanalysis, my current research focuses on the transformation of suffering in everyday cultivation, the idea of heaven-human in traditional Chinese psychology, and its decline in modern Chinese psychology.
