Abstract

This paper attempts to identify methodological issues and tasks in defining Asian values and to discuss the utility and functionality of the Asian values debate, focusing on the social science literature dealing with Asian values. Pointing out the ambiguity and inaccuracy of conceptualization of Asian values in the literature, this paper reveals that the practical utility and functionality of Asian values in the social science literature have been very weak. In conclusion, in order for concept of Asian values to served a useful and practical function as explanans in the social science literature, this paper suggests that the concept should be defined specifically, elaborate the practical utility, and establish a sound logical system.
