“Under the premise of not touching the system, focusing on strengthening undergraduates’ learning about traditional music and promoting the traditional music education from the skill learning of music theory to the level of culture are two approaches.” (Zuyin 2012) It will be better if government properly make classical music and market economy combine. Building brands of music and putting more investment to classical music will give it more capitals and space to develop. Meanwhile, excessive commercialization will be harmful and meaningless to classical music’s protection. Moderate combination can reach good result.

The result was greater insight into the realities of Chinese civilisation. Two bodies of thought emerged with this increase in knowledge of China in the 18th century: enlightenment philosophers' identification with Confucianism, and scholarly disillusionment with the changelessness of Chinese civilisation. These bodies make up the final stages of the Western representations cycle, and show the transition from positive to negative depictions of China. The enlightenment period's philosophers continued the cycle of Western positive portrayals of China. The philosophers characterised China as having a model government, which used Confucianism's rational values to achieve effective morality, without Christianity.
These changes have contributed to the change of people’s view of the world and the way literature is written, marking the start of postmodern literature. In culture, the spread and commercialization of popular culture has lead to the aesthetic and artistic norms for interpreting art and literature, as well as their value, being reduced, causing the eradication of a former distinction between the “high” and “low” forms of art. In his article “Mapping the Postmodern” (1984), Andreas Huyssen argues that the relation between modernism and postmodernism is a shift of the way of thinking, which challenges “modernism's relentless hostility to mass culture” by postmodernism's integrations of pop and high art (16). He completes this thought by stating that this “new creative relationship between high art and certain forms of mass culture” is what marked the shift from “high modernism and the art and literature which followed it in the 1970s and 1980s both in Europe and the United States” (Huyssen 23). Similarly, in her A Poetics of Postmodernism (1988), Linda Hutcheon
Legitimacy in authoritarian regimes is often explained merely through the economic performance of the country: economic growth is deemed to be the main basis for legitimacy. This is arguably an oversimplification of the issue of legitimacy in authoritarian countries, like China. China, in fact, has been the object of debate and research regarding the ways the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) manages to hold its grip on power. Scholars have therefore challenged the equation “legitimacy=economic growth” by adding other elements to the formula and presenting new methodologies to research legitimacy in China. This literature review gives an overview of the debates on how to measure legitimacy and the strategies the CCP uses to build support.
Being one of the original members of the Kumamoto Band, Soho initially became influenced heavily by Janes through aspects such as Christianity, Western ideals and science through ideas such as theoretical Democracy (De Bary 127). One of the ways the strong belief of Japanese societal change reached the public was through Soho and his publishing career. He worked in writing and published his thoughts and beliefs of which were influenced by Janes. Some of his works, however, were radical (Summerfield 132). Due to the fact that Soho's beliefs were spread through his writing to the public, it could have affected the society around him as people began to understand more on a Western bias.

Lao-Tzu was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. He is known as the author of the Tao Te Ching, the founder of philosophical Taoism, and a god in Taoism and traditional Chinese religions. Niccolò Machiavelli was a writer of the Renaissance period. They are both philosophers that have completely different perspective on how a country should run and how the leaders should act. While both philosophers’ writing can be very useful to the government in some ways.
After the Republic of China was founded in 1912, China was plagued into political confusions and shame. This has led to the formation of the New Culture Movement by the scholars with the agenda to push China to embrace modernity. It was strongly believed for China to preserve its own culture and strength, China must first become globalised. Thus, breaking traditional Chinese beliefs and culture was part of the development of a progressive society that is able to compete in the globalised world. This has led to the creation of a new Chinese culture based on western and global standards.
The Twentieth Century marked an important transition period for education in China that comprises four distinct stages, which closely relates to important political events.

Subsequently, the second stage lasted from 1912 to 1948 under the KMT regime. During this period, there was more presentation on Western ideologies. Then came the Maoist period, from 1938 to 1976, in which schools promoted Mao’s teachings that were inspired by Russian pedagogy.
