Abstract: This article focuses on the paradigm shift that took place in Chinese thought during the nineteenth and twentieth century after the contact with Western scientific thought. The author moves from the role of Pacioli and the introduction of double-entry bookkeeping on Italian Renaissance and Western culture to the reconstruction of the various fields of knowledge in China after the replacement of the heavenly principle (tianli 天理), based on Confucianism and its values, with the new general principle (gongli 公理) based on modern science, which provided the base for a new social model and a new principle of morality.
