Main Opnions

Since returning to Britain in the 1980s, he has focused on the construction of his theoretical system, and has put forward the theory of social operation, social transformation theory, disciplinary indigenous theory, social mutual construction theory and practical structure theory. Among them, social operation theory and social mutual construction theory belong to social ontology, social transformation theory and practical structure theory are social development theory, while disciplinary theory is methodology, thus constructing a set of its own academic discourse. These five theories have the oriental character of sociology, it is not easy, and it is a theoretical system that is sufficient for dialogue with western sociological circles.
