This chapter looks to the past to Chinese philosophy, religion, and history to help in understanding the unique Hong Kong response to remigration and identity. It notes that the teachings of Confucius and Laozi, among others, form a four-thousand-year-old foundation for looking at the migrant psychology of contemporary Hong Kongers. These formative schools of thought are contrasted with those of the ancient Greek philosophers, whose work similarly shaped Western culture, including psychological responses to cultural transitions.
