Dengjian Jin

Professor of International Business and Management (1997)

In his recent book, The Great Knowledge Transcendence: The Rise of Western Science and Technology Reframed, Professor Jin challenges traditional views of Western exceptionalism and asserts that Western science arose because of fundamental contradictions within Christian and Thomist belief systems. These contradictions prompted Western intellectuals to seek measurable explanations for observed phenomena, which led to the rise of modern science. The Great Knowledge Transcendence was co-recipient of the 2016 Schumpeter Prize, and Jin will continue his reasoning in a forthcoming book that challenges predominant theories in epistemology and philosophy of science.
