Taking the French philosopher Derrida as an example, he explained the connotation of humanistic spirit and humanities and the role of humanities in the era of globalization, then proposed globalized theory building, and meanwhile analyzed the reaction of contemporary humanists to academically frontier topics. Finally, he compared the contributions of global humanities with those of Chinese scholars. Additionally, he also put forward suggestions on the discourse power of Chinese humanists in the international field of basic theory research and answered the questions raised by the students in detail.
