Harmonious regionalism from the perspective of Chinese philosophy is best expressed as an anti-hegemonic discourse that privileges wu-wei (actionless action) and yin-yang correlativity. These are framed within a larger Confucian-Socialist hybrid narrative, such as “win-win” policies that are advanced in various white papers, be they on China’s “peaceful development”, foreign aid or national defence. Through the use of social constructivism in Western International Relations theory, it is possible to ask whether China is a constructivist state in search of a correlative region. If so, this would render the meaning of “harmonious regionalism” as a process (dao, the way) based model rather than a highly institutionalized one. The Confucian concept of harmony in which diverse interests prevail in a dynamic balance accords with this notion of process. China’s participation in regional organizations on its periphery is examined through this conceptual lens. 摘要 从中国哲学角度出发,和谐地区主义最佳解读是:推崇无为和阴阳相互关系的反霸权理论。这个理论包含在一种更高层次的儒家-社会主义混合理论框架中。中国推出的“和平发展”、对外援助或者国防等白皮书中,都极力宣扬“双赢”政策。这个政策就是混合理论的一个例子。运用西方国际关系理论的社会建构主义,我们可以提出这个问题:中国是不是一个寻求地区联系的建构主义国家?如果答案肯定的话,那么“和谐地区主义”就是一个以过程(道)为基础的模式,而不是一个高度制度化的模式。在儒家学说中,和谐指的是不同的利益能够维持动态平衡,并得以实现。这与“道”的含义是一致的。我们就从这个概念的角度,来审视中国参与周边地区组织的情况。
