Abstract
In the process of modernization, the transformation and development of culture is an important part and theme. China and the West have contributed wisdom and strength to the modern transformation and development of culture. How they deal with and answer the question about the relations between human and nature, between human and society and between humans constitutes the main difference between Chinese and Western cultures. In the relation between human and nature, the West has a rational cultural tradition, while Chinese traditional culture has a natural view of harmony between heaven and human; in the relation between human and society, the West has a humanistic tradition, while Chinese traditional culture has the view of harmony between humans; in the relation between human and him/herself, the West has an ascetic tradition, while Chinese traditional culture has a view of reason-based desire control.
