TORRES-MIRANDA, Teresa  y  YANG, Liu. Creativity in Chinese Education: A Study in Response to the “Chinese Paradox”. Rev. Cubana Edu. Superior [online]. 2021, vol.40, n.1, e1.  Epub 01-Abr-2021. ISSN 0257-4314.

The article is a historical study on the role of creativity in Chinese education. It deals with the main periods of its development with the purpose of demonstrating that, contrary to what is proposed at the international level about Chinese education, this has from its roots elements that are directed towards independence, reflection, self-control and intelligence, without ignoring its cultural essence. At present China boasts an impressive and original progress in science, technology and education, a scenario that contrasts with Western arguments that assure that the pedagogical methods in force in the country favor a superficial and memoristic learning that atrophies the analytical capacity of students and, therefore, reduces their creative capacity. In order to solve this paradox, it is proposed as an objective to base, with the support of the historical-logical method, the elements that evidence the presence of creativity since the origins of the nation.
