Said is very critical about how the Western scholars have studied Eastern countries because Orientalists have books that are only focusing on the Orient and the Orientalist as their main authority even today, the Orient being the Easterners and the Occident being the Westerners. This therefore leads to Western novelists, theorists, poets promoting the distinction or difference between the East and West and creating theories, social
During the warring time period, 479 BCE - 221 BCE, many Chinese philosophies were created. The Warring Period was a time of conflict between different feudal states. Some of the conflict was resolved using various philosophies. Two popular philosophies created during that time were Mohism and Legalism. Mohism “became influential when technical intelligence began to challenge traditional priest craft in ancient China” (philosophy.hku.hk).
Those intellectuals had advanced western education; they try to speared western advanced thought; also, they create a modern style of Chinese literature. The scholars in favor of new culture movement, like Hu Shi,Advocates the new literature(bai hua wen), opposing the old literature (wen yan wen). Advocates simple writing instead of traditional writing, there are a lot of scholars have different opinion about new culture movement on Chinese culture. Some scholars think it is good for Chinese culture development, but some scholars think it ruin traditional culture. My research question is: Did New Culture Movement ruin Chinese traditional culture or not?
Korea and China are major countries representing the Oriental culture or Eastern culture in Asia. However, both nations also possess their own unique features such as politics, economy and culture which are different from one another. This Study is to compare the two different language versions and explain the reasons based on the cultural background and based on the point of paratext. Secondly, the study focuses on the paratext, not the main text of the book. Translation of children’s book is characterized by strong intervention by the translators to bridge the gap.
Discuss the implications of XunZi and Mencius’ views on Human Nature RE Philosophy Group 2 2015 Group Members: Chen Jin Yang (4) Li Ze Hua (15) Lu Shao Qin (18) Aaron Tan (25) Theodore Kuah (27) Introduction Human nature is an abstract concept, defined in modern terms as the general psychological characteristics, feelings, and behavioural traits of humankind. This is a topic that has been debated amongst a number of philosophers throughout history, and in this paper we will be specifically looking at two chinese philosophers, Mencius and Xunzi. Although both of them are Confucian thinkers, they have seemingly contradictory ideas on whether human nature is inherently good or bad. The main aim of this paper is to analyse the implications of the philosophers’ assertions and show that their views are inherently similar. Arguments Mencius’ Argument Mencius’ argument on human nature asserts that human nature is inherently good and that all human beings have the capacity to be good.
The doctrines of Mencius and Hsün Tzu are the part of the core and major, almost compulsory to the studying of Classical Confucianism. Some of the researchers found their differences, even called contradiction among discussing about human nature. Here comes the conclusion that Men Tzu and Hsün Tzu are two extremes, with completely different in their views about human nature. Nevertheless, we should refocus on the root of their philosophy, to determine rather they are different or not. Conversely, it can be concluded that Mencius and Hsün Tzu are similar base on their process of thinking, also their continuous advocation on self-cultivation and education.
“Becoming human is a project and our task is not so much to discover who we are, as to create ourselves” (Corey, 2013, p.129). As one of the primary existential thinkers, Kierkegaard speculated that human discontent must be overcome through inside knowledge. Nietzsche additionally built up the hypothesis of existentialism by presenting the idea of free will and personal moral obligation. Otto Rank was among the primary existential therapists to effectively seek after the dicipline train and by the mid 20th century, psychologist Paul Tillich and Rollo May brought existential therapy into the spotlight through their works and research. The prevalent approach started to impact different theories and methods, including the humanistic field, created by Viktor Frankl.
The Influence of Confucianism, Legalism, and Buddhism on Chinese Empires and Society The history of the ancient China is filled with explorations and reforms of the most suitable, effective, and adaptable state ideology for different empires and the society ruled. Up till Tang dynasty, since the early emperors themselves had little idea what would be ideal and what would not, different ideologies were endorsed in a much experimental way, among which three major ideologies played important roles in shaping the Chinese empires that advocated them and affecting the values and behaviors of the society under the rule of these empires. These three ideologies are Legalism, Confucianism, and Buddhism, and were adopted by Qin, Han, and Tang dynasty respectively. However, these three ideologies differ from each other in many dimensions, including the first premise on human nature, the view on law versus morality, and the philosophy of government. Legalism, the state ideology of Qin Dynasty, sought the best way to build a power central government and emphasized on the importance of law over ethical morality.
What I'm expressing is usually of which philosophers whom are experts in integrity notice their own issue in a different way than do social people. Research connected with charismatic, transformational, along with experienced leadership often discusses ethics. With these studies, ethics is usually area of the social scientist’s outline connected with varieties or maybe qualities connected with leaders and/or leader behaviors. From your philosopher’s standpoint, these studies present helpful empirical explanations, but they don't present precise important analysis from the ethics with leadership. The research connected with integrity in different discipline, for instance enterprise or maybe rules, in addition assists as a important idea.
Japanese contract law was especially influenced by the drafts of the German Civil Code, which eventually came into force on January 1, 1900, and German prevalent legal theories around that time. On the other hand, many scholars take the view that the different Japanese culture implicates a different legal consciousness of contract in Japan, if not already
