"The Analects of Confucius" a book is the main basis for the existing study of its academic thinking. Since the Han Dynasty, Confucius’s theory was selected by ruling class in policy and Confucius was thought the highest sage. (6) After Confucius died, his students inherited his theory and work for different country. As the times go, the Confucianism was known by every country. To get well in Confucianism is deny self and return to propriety.
All of these highlight the cyclical nature of history in China, and its importance in the development of the state. The geneses of the three philosophies were based on the teachings of Confucius, and show how the nature of Chinese history is cyclical. Confucius was born in 551 BCE during the Chao dynasty, about 100 years after a period known as the Warring States. Political unity was unstable during Confucius’ time and consequently, China had broken into small states that were constantly at war with one another. Confucius wanted to solve these political problems and help restore order in his country and therefore created his “school of thought” ... ... middle of paper ... ...he repetition of history is an important component of the development of Chinese culture and society.
From 100 CE to 600 CE the Chinese had many cultural and political life changes and continuities. A political change was in the end of the Classical Chinese period when the Han Dynasty fell. A cultural change during 100 CE to 600 CE was the paper invention that led to passing down cultural rituals. Not only were there changes but there was also continuities in the Chinese political and cultural life. An example of a cultural continuity is the increasing power of Buddhism.
We are given many examples of the economical and political mechanisms at the start of Chinese civilization, and go through their transformations through the Neolithic Age, to the Shang and Zhou Dynasties, the Warring States Period. It was during the Warring States Period that China had started to give perhaps it's greatest contribution to modern civilization as Chinese intellectuals were arguing about the ideal forms of social and political organization and man's connections to nature. These intellectuals led to the ideas of Confucianism, Daoism, Legalism, and Yin and Yang, which all greatly influence modern culture. We next look at East Asia, mainly China and her influence over other East Asian nations, and only briefly look at the spread of Buddhism from India in chapter six. Following decades of constant warfare, the Qin state unified China.
Mao ZeDong's extravagant actions made two of the many changes to China. They are the shift from a capitalist system to a socialist system and the achievement of China's independence against Japanese imperialism (Somo, 2013a). The influence of Mao’s theory has been widespread to the world up until this day. Especially, in the countries of the third world have been deep-going by his ideology. On December 26, 1893, in ShaoShan, Hunan Province of China, a great leader was born.
Confucianism became the dominant philosophical school of China during the time of the Han Dynasty. Legalism as an articulate philosophy vanished completely because of the relationship with the unpopular dictatorial rule of Qin Shi Huang. However, many of the ideas still influence the Chinese philosophy until the end of the imperial rule during the period of the Xinhai
In 1935, the Chinese Communist Party’s base area was established in Yan’an, where Mao Zedong emerged as the paramount leader. Two years later, Anti-Japanese War (1937-1945) broke out, with the threat of Japanese military, the Nationalist Party and the Chinese Communist Party cooperated and defended the invasion of Japan successfully until 1945. Afterwards, Civil War between two parties outburst and the Communist Party won the battle with wise command (like the Long March) of Mao Zedong. In 1949, “the Communist Party had gained control of almost the entire country, and Mao Zedong had pronounced the
After his studies, Deng returned to China and joined the army of Feng Yuxiang. During his time in the military, Deng was part of the Fengtian’s attempt to prevent the break of the alliance between the Kuomintang and the Communists. Deng also led the Baise Uprising in Guangxi province against the Kuomintang government in 1929. After his military career, Deng lived in the city of Wuhan. Here, Deng first met Mao Zedong, who at the time was marginalized by others in the party.
 Chiang led China in the Second Sino-Japanese War, during which Chiang's stature within China weakened, but his international prominence grew. Kai-Shek attempted to eradicate the Chinese Communists during the civil war (1927-1949), but ultimately failed, forcing his KMT government to escape to Taiwan, where he continued serving as the President of the Republic of China and Director-General of the KMT for the remainder of his life. Chiang Kai-shek was born in Xikou, a town that is approximately 20.5 miles (33.0 km) southwest of downtown Ningbo, in Fenghua County, Ningbo Prefecture, Zhejiang Province. However, his ancestral home, a concept important in Chinese society, was the town of Heqiao (å'æ©é®) in Yixing County, Wuxi Prefecture, Jiangsu Province (approximately 38 km or 24 miles southwest of downtown Wuxi, and 10 km (6 miles) from the shores of the famous Lake Tai). His father, Chiang Zhaocong, and mother, Wang Caiyu, were members of an upper to upper-middle-class family of salt merchants.
However, the idea of Communism exploded based on the leadership of Mao Zedong in 1949 which led to a variety of reforms. As a result, Zedong developed a new branch of Communism called Maoism. Still in the 21st century, China continues to strive to preserve its Communist ideals but has, in some ways, succumbed to Westernization. Although China continue to adhere to Maoist philosophies, the Communist Party of China has been allowing certain Western customs such as popular music into China’s culture. Essentially, the Communist Party has affected China by influencing the politics, the culture, the media, and the economy.
