Modernization” was once conflated with “Westernization”. It was believed that from Science to Humanity, all would be clearly known with western methodologies.
Later discoveries have challenged the fundamentals of that paradigm.  We came to realize uncertainty, probability, indeterminism, incompleteness of science and humanity. 
The views of scientists such as: Newton, Einstein, Feynman, Prigogine, Hawking, etc., as well as views of politicians, writers, artists, will be discussed. For example:
Prigogine, a Nobel laureate 1977, was inspired by Chinese views of the nature.
Bill Clinton and Tony Blair advocated “the Third way”, which echoes the Mid-way (Centrism) that is a major theme by Confucius.
The works and lives of Lu, Xun, Eileen Chang, Kenneth Pai, Ang Lee, will be briefed to illustrate the environmental impact and transcendence from modernization to this new era of globalization.
