In a famous essay, the philosopher Isaiah Berlin borrowed a distinction from the ancient Greek poet Archilochus: “The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.”
China has not received an official invitation to attend the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, which will be held on January 20th.
However, former Taiwanese Prime Minister Yu Shyi-kun will represent the island at the ceremony. Along with attending the inauguration, the Taiwanese delegation will hold talks with politicians, academics, and overseas representatives of the Chinese community, as the ministry has informed on its website.
