I agree with Michael Wood’s concept of Chinese culture as discussed in his video programme. The agreement are as followed. Michael Wood pointed out that the Chinese emphasis on the harmonious nature. The Chinese deeply believed peace and balance. I suppose they blend this idea into daily practice.
Name Instructor’s Name Course Date Confucian values routinely informed the actions and worldviews of everyone in Han China, from the highest official to the lowliest peasant. True or false? Introduction According to Murray (23), the Confucian ideology clearly illustrates that nurturing the basic instinct to live by submitting to those in power is the best applicable method of blocking the ability to question the credibility of whatever has been commanded by those in power. However, this is only possible the routine of continuously submitting to the powerful does not lead to unendurable suffering. The ideology concentrated on making subjects to be compliant to the order of authority that was before them.
First, China adapted to Buddhism mainly but some were Christians. However, Confucianism influenced deeply through this time. It carried out the lifestyle of obedience in families and how everyone should act to be proper and polite. This philosophy proved out to be very popular during this time. It assisted to the culture creating a more intense culture.
A document from either of these sources would provide great insight into the attitudes toward technology in each nation. The Han’s view of technology was predominately self-glorifying, with good reason as the Chinese invented everything from paper to acupuncture. The Han’s seemed to feel that technology was about helping the people. As demonstrated in document 1, the first goal of technology is to ward off disaster, in this case, a flood. This demonstrates a concern for the people, at least of the property, giving the impression that technology is there to aid the Chinese.
Outline and explain two ways in which ethnic identities are created and reinforced. (16 marks) Ethnic identities are created and reinforced by both primary and secondary socialisation. The family is the most important agent of primary socialisation; this is when an individual first learns about their ethnic heritage. Modood (2005) describes this process as the first time we become aware of our ethnic culture through food, language, dress, rituals and traditions. Miri Song’s study on British Chinese found that Chinese parents were very influential in reinforcing Chinese values by positively sanctioning children who choose to help out in the family business.
Mulan Essay The Disney movie Mulan is very historically accurate to ancient China life. The movie has many of the same aspects that were in ancient China. Some of the aspects are the Great Wall of China, Veneration of Ancestors, Filial Piety, the Mandate of Heaven, and the Dynastic Cycle. The movie also describes the role of men and women in ancient China’s society and the loyalty to the state and devotion to honor and duty. The Great Wall of China was built by Emperor Shi Huangdi to keep out Mongol invaders from the North.
According to Chua, Chinese parents do not only set strict rules and regulations that their children have to abide by, but they also use negative reinforcement when their children do not want to obey their orders. In contrast, western parents believe that it is unnecessary to control their children preferences such as, no watching T.V, studying excessively and only participating in extracurricular activities that they are assigned to be successful throughout life. However, Chua claims that the children brought up by the “Chinese mother” style of parenting still turn out not only to be mentally, physically, and emotionally stable but happy and as well as successful later on in life. Chua says she knows this because the “Chinese mother” methods help her raise two successful kids. She gives a list of things that her children were not allowed to do, which consist of them not taking part in any school plays or getting any grades less than an A and that it all paid off for her in the end.
Source A mentions about Qui Shihuang introducing laws uniformly throughout China and adopting a single script of writing unifying the people throughout his empire. Source A also mentions that Qui Shihuang introduced “standard measures and coins” throughout his 36 provinces. These measures helped to bring about unity and prosperity within his empire. Source B also illustrates Qui Shihuang as a “iconic unifier of the nation and culture”. and illustrates the many “significant cultural landmarks” like the Great Wall, Terracotta army museum and Qin’s own mausoleum as symbols of his greatness as a ruler.
This type of exercise can have one of two outcomes, one the village people will get a taste of voting and democracy and will demand more of political control and influence. The other outcome will be that people are satisfied and feel that there is no need for change as mentioned above. The one political party in China roughly consist of 60 million members. The US government was established in 1787 when the constitutional convention voted for George Washington for president after defeating the British. Although the US has exercised democracy longer than the Chinese have practiced socialism, they are one of the oldest civilizations in history.
Confucius wanted the state or nation to work as a big family where everyone respects each other individually. This would mean that people could be less foreign to each other and be more confident and patriotic and treat the king as the highest father. Ceremony is just the nature of Chinese people. Its only supernatural elements lie in the idea of our ancestors watching over us and sending coded messages that can be perceived using various techniques, and us sending messages to them via sacrifices. Taoism is the one I like least.
