Being a Taiwanese, I think it is really hard for us to define what our own culture so far, because Taiwan's historical background is very complicated. However, as Kate has mentioned in our presentation that it is a problem of our attitude. When we see "foreign culture" is so dominant in Taiwan, we can not deny that this kind of phenomenon is a warning for us. At least, it is danferous that little judgement is shown in this current mania for Japanse's culture. What our presenation wants to say is that Taiwanese have to be more critical and careful while dealing with the issue of globization. This does not mean Taiwanese should reject foreign culture; on the contrary, we expect Taiwanese to strike a balance between the positive impact of foreign culture and the protective attitud toward our own culture. After all, our identity has to trace back the source of our own culture, which helps us to defind who we are. Where we are going is not easy to know, but we should try to control the main direction anyway.
