Abstract : Out of twelve theorems of status-field theory, three were selected for discussion in this paper: status dependent cooperation theorem, status dependent conflict theorem and interaction theorem. From these three theorems, the following hypotheses on China's cooperation, conflict and interaction were deduced; the more economically developed and the more powerful the object nation, the more China's status dependent cooperation (cooperation hypothesis); the more powerful and the less economically developed the object nation, the more China's status dependent conflict behavior (conflict hypothesis); and China's status dependent interaction with other nations is a function of the power incongruence between China and the others.
