- Administrative idea; Distinction; Motivation; Cause
- An administrative idea is the soul of the administrative act and the core of the ruling culture. For a country’s government, administrative ideas determine its administrative function, organization, system and mode. The core values of China and Western countries have been the focal point to the culture researchers since ancient times, especially the Philosophical foundations and history of different countries. Chinese government administration, from the doctrine of the Mean philosophy and the history of agricultural civilization, derived some core ideas such as harmony, benevolent governance, rule of virtue, grade, rule of man, and power tactics. Western government administration, from the thought of liberal philosophy and the development of industrial civilization, must derive the core ideas like freedom, justice, democracy, rule of law, and efficiency. These differences of core administrative ideas are caused by the differences among philosophical basis, historic culture and economic system
