The issues of Chinese civilization and political thought became an important part of Eric Voegelin's interests at the end of his life. It was her view in the Ecumenic Age in 1974 it gave rise to reflection on the unity of humanity, for which he was widely criticized by conservative circles in America. Chinese Ekumena, as he defined this civilizational and cultural area, is studied primarily in terms of Voegelin's most important political philosophy concepts such as order, soul and transcendence. From the self-determination of Chinese civilization as the only one within the known world, its specific features and way of thinking are derived. An incomplete breakthrough in the discovery of the human soul and its order turns out to be a key feature. The purpose of the article is to show the application of the conceptual workshop of Eric Voegelin and its category to study Chinese civilization, while showing the importance of sinological reflections for the entire output of the philosopher.
