Confucianism is a belief or an idea. The purpose of this was to show people how to be in harmony with their place in life. Legalism is a ruling made by Shi Huangdi, who was a strict ruler in china. The purpose of this ruling was to get the people of china to follow the rule, and if they didn’t there was a very harsh punishment. Although confucianism and legalism have some similarities, but the differences between the two are amazingly clear.
When discussing the influence of Confucianism in the Han empire it is clear to say that other than the concept of education, relationship also played role in the contribution of order in society. One of the most well known systems in grouping this idea were the Five Relationships or in what used to be called wu-lun. These include relationships between father and son, elder brother and younger brother, husband and wife, emperor and subject, and friend and friend. The most essential relationship during the Han dynasty would be the association between emperor and subject, in which, it is the job of a subject to serve the emperor but, it is also the job of the emperor to care for the subject. According to Taylor, “ The Five Relations are
Louis World Fair shows a strong picture of the way the ideas of Social Darwinist were reflected into the culture and popular attitudes. I think the St. Louis World Fair shows this because it was all about being American and how big and grand we can be. This just shows how much the U.S thought of themselves. The Social Darwinist ideas made the culture a more big headed place that thought mostly about what was best for the U.S only. I find it a little crazy how uncaring the U.S was of other people and places at this time.
The Qin and Han employed different philosophies on how to run their dynasties. The Qin used controlling Legalistic ideas while the Han used the relationship building Confucianism. The Qin and Han had a different relationship with outsiders because the Qin preferred to keep foreigners out while the Han wanted to build a relationship with them. The Qin and the Han each contributed to the growth of China’s culture and expansion. The developments in trade, foreign relations, and building expansive building projects in the Qin and Han Dynasties effected the design of every dynasty
⎯Thucydides, The Peloponnesian War. Albert Einstein famously quoted that “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” In the past wars were determined a success based on tactical engagements. However, General political tactics to reduce violence and reestablish metropolitan governments in his area of operations. His foresight and cognitive reasoning of displaying generosity and decent humanity while maintaining a military authority in the area was more instrumental to the Iraqi people than imposing the United States military might. He stated, “If you don't want to have to kill or capture every bad guy in the country, you have to reintegrate those who are willing to be reconciled and become part of the solution instead of a continued part of the problem.” General Petraeus understood the key component to stabilizing not only his area of operations, but within the theater, was to empower the people in the region to govern themselves and be self-reliant.
When Japan began to unify, looking to its most powerful neighbor for guidance was the best choice for the budding empire. Using centralized government policies found in the Tang Dynasty, Japan was able to centralize their nation very quickly. By eliminating clansman through legislature and then replacing them with administrators; Japan created a new, loyal aristocracy. By emulating Tang’ land reforms, Japan successfully enacted a taxation system that they could modify as the empire changed. Without China, especially the Tang Dynasty, Japan would not have formed such a stable nation in
Did you know that Pearl Harbor was actually the beginning of WWII? Some don’t, but I believe you have to know where you came from to know where you're going. I believe that Franklin Roosevelt was a great leader. He quickly studied Japan after the attack and helped America get back up after being knocked down for staying out of the war. To be a servant leader you need to build better organizations and ultimately a caring world overall.
I believe that imperialism was beneficial for the people that had their countries interrogated, and expanded. One of the many benefits would be that America would give that country stability and modernization, adapting the country to fit its needs, if they were struggling. For example, ¨If we annex the Philippines we shall have to conquer the Filipinos by force of arms, and thereby
In the discussion on the methods of governing and administration of a state, one cannot leave out the models proposed by Confucius as well as Mencius. Both advocated that the ruler or the government has to rule by virtue and strengthen moral education among its people. Political leaders have to set moral examples for the people to follow, and to be benevolent towards their subordinates and citizens. By doing so, that would bring about social stability and population growth within the state, also creating conditions that would lead to an improvement in the welfare of the people. By fulfilling his duties to the people, a just and benevolent ruler would then be justified to rule by the Mandate of Heaven.
This was a school of thought during American Imperialism serving mainly as an excuse to conquer other nations. White Man’s Burden said that Americans were better, smarter, and more capable than the inhabitants of less advanced countries and suggested that it was the duty of Americans to take over these countries and help them become better. In reality, when Americans tried to execute these beliefs in countries such as the Philippines, their attempts were met with dissatisfaction and rebellion. The other countries did not want to be like America, but Americans
Although, the transnational technical community was the significant reason in which Taiwan has developed so rapidly. Institutions and markets have had a larger effect on Japan. The culture and history of Japan had strong values for building an economic empire and eventually its market grew to match it. It’s large enterprises formed its economic power. Although Biggart would lean towards the institutional approach, I partially agree that Japan’s institutions allowed for its growth but this was not the case for Taiwan.
1) Thesis: During the Han Dynasty, techonogy was almost exclusively viewed positively, while in the Roman Empire, the attitude regarding technology varied. 2) Group 1: In the Han China, technology was seens as a way to improve the quality of goods and improve the lives of the general population. a) Doc 2: A Han government official by the name of Huan Guan wrote that the govt. monopoly on iron should be lifted so that families with pride in their work could be able to construct weapons, rather than have prisoners with no regard for the quality of the weapons construct them. b) Doc 4: In a government sponsored history of the early Han Dynasty, an annonymus source writes about Tu Shi and how he “destroyed evil doers” (Doc 4) and “wished to save their
Imperialism is the term used when a country expands its current power and influence through diplomacy or military force throughout other lands and countries that are weaker than their own. Some motives of imperialism is, economic reasons, like industries need resources, and customers to sell to. Another reason would be military factors, and nationalism. Imperialism in the US hasn 't been a failure. The goal was to increase the country 's influence, territory, power, and belief.
The support of Confucianism lead to the creation of the Seventeen Article Constitution. which was created by Shotoku and combined "Shotoku 's Buddhist and Confucian beliefs," that came from China. The constitution was, for the most part, created to, "ensure the employer 's power as a singular monarch" (Shotoku). The article consisted of rules and guides for Japanese officials. For example, it included laws that kept the government officials in their places by emphasizing the Confucian idea of subject to ruler relationship which united the clans and ensured that "government officials always obeyed the orders of the reigning monarch, for the sake of consistency and centralization of power" (Shotoku).
Confucians heavily emphasized bettering the community through active learning. On the other hand, Daoists prefer a more passive approach where they withdrew themselves from the problem in order to solve it (Benjamin 9). Also, unlike Confucius, the Daoists thought about the metaphysical, such as whether or not death is really something to be feared (Benjamin 9). Nature is a large focus in Daoism, something to be respected, while Confucians emphasize respect towards humans (Benjamin 9). Even so, both Daoism and Confucianism values are adopted by many of the modern day Chinese, where they will be Confucians in the workplace and Daoists when they get some time to explore their inner selves (Benjamin
