    The structure is "以...为..." (yi3...wei2...) -- "take/"

    以级别高低为序: use high and low ranking as the order = order by seniority

    以攻为守: use offense as defense: the best defense is a good offense

    In your sentence, you have: 以什么为基础: use what as the basis = based on what

    the "是" is there for emphasis. "What is this theory based on?"

    (1)“以” 的意思就是”用“。



    Ich dachte die Satzsegmente sind ein bisschen schräg gegliedert,
    你的理论 Deine Theorie
    是 wird/ist
    以 ...(作 wird hier weggelassen)为基础的

    Dann sieht man dass der chinessiche Satz eigentlich aus 3 Teilen besteht,

    Substantiv plus Verb. plus Präp.(als Prädikat) 你的理论是...dann kommt 以welche Grundlagen (作)为基础 als Basis.

    Als welchem Basis kommt deine Theorie?
