Hello! Welcome to my blog, this blog is based on GitHub and Hexo. You can just call me Demos. I’m a graduate student majoring in sociology.
I was born in Harbin in the northeast of China. The natural landform here is boundless plain and vast and vigorous river water. To some extent, although I live in the mountainous south of China now, I am still the son of the surging river and the black soil.
This blog is predominantly about my thoughts, my reviews (mainly about papers), and occasionally about my travel diaries. My main fields of academic interest are about social stratification and urban studies, and my favorite writers in my spare time are Hsien-yung Pai (白先勇) and Yu-tang Lin (林语堂).
This is a personal testimony, a testimony of my own experience of thought and life. It is not intended to be objective and makes no claim to establish eternal truths. In fact I rather despise claims to objectivity in philosophy; the point of view is the thing. I should have liked to call it “A Lyrical Philosophy,” using the word “lyrical” in the sense of being a highly personal and individual outlook. (The Importance of Living, Yu-tang Lin)
Besides, if there is an inaccessible problem with this blog, you can visit another mirror blog. My English is horrible, but I’m trying to write in English. If I have any mistakes in grammar or vocabulary, please feel free to let me know. Best wishes :)&XD
