Summary/Abstract: The reconstruction of the organisational model of Chinese society, with particular reference to the models of forming social relations. The books explores the most important notions of Confucian ethics, the rules of social exchange as well as other terms which influence behavioural norms, perception of the world and basic communication strategies. A Chinese face lian 臉 (moral face) and mian 面 (social face) is described on this cultural matrix. It is a central notion from the perspective of internalised social control, the most important symbolic protected value, built by people in the space of social roles and bonds.
