A site dedicated to examining the cultures of China and the West, to demonstrate how the two cultures share many fundamental moral and philosophical principles.

Here we seek to promote a dialogue among cultures, focussing on how the quality of human creativity, that makes each man and woman 'in the image of God,' is manifest in different cultures.
