As a missionary, Xavier went to Asia and carried out his missionary activities in India and Malacca. In Malacca he met a Japanese rebel, Anjiro who urged him to visit Japan. Xavier went to Japan with two other missionaries and started his mission. He confronted some problems because of the language barrier. The Kodansha's Encyclopedia of Japan describes Xavier’s arrival in Japan as, “In 1547 he met in Malacca a Japanese fugitive named Anjiro, whose glowing account of his naive country fired Xavier with enthusiasm to evangelize Japan. Xavier reached Kagoshima with two Jesuit companions on 15 August 1549, and with Anjiro as his less than adequate interpreter, he preached Christianity and compiled a simple catechism, with the result that about 100 people accepted baptism. A year after his arrival Xavier visited Hirado and Yamaguchi, but wishing to obtain permission to preach throughout Japan, he made his way to Kyoto in an unsuccessful bid to meet Emperor Gonara. He left Japan for India at the end of 1551”.
In Asia, European nations, especially those who were Catholic, were interested in spreading Christianity to Asia. Countries, such as Spain were successful in spreading Christianity throughout the Americas. Western Europe was looking for the same success in Asia that they had in the Americas. Many missionaries were sent to Asia to fulfil these hopes. In document 4, Matteo and his lay companion Paul Siu Kwang-k’i, a painting depicting Ricci, left, and Paul Siu, right. Ricci is depicted wearing traditional Chinese attire. The Jesuits, the group for which Ricci was associated with, believed that the best way to convert a civilization, such as China, was to immerse themselves in their culture. Missionaries did not just focus their efforts in China. As document 13 shows, Writing of St. Francis Xavier Letter from Japan - 1551, these missionaries worked to translate the Bible to allow those they were converting to better understand Christianity in their own language. This would allow a significantly higher number of people in Japan to convert, and the missionaries would be considered successful. On the other hand, the document also shows the fears that the Japanese had in regards to converting to Christianity. According to Xavier, the Japanese see the “rightness” of Christianity as opposed to their previous beliefs, but he sites that their princes cause

Michel Foucault’s work within philosophy has made important impacts when it comes to understanding how power affects a capitalist state. Believed that history of a country should how the past created a better future for society but in most cases through history, that was not the case. One of the examples that Foucault uses is how the mentally ill were treated in the Renaissance compared to the 18th century. During the Renaissance period, the mental ill people were allowed to seen within society and were seen as useful and gave wisdom into their society rather than in the 18th century. People with mental illness were put away and see as a burden to society and seen as needed to being cured by sinister people. Another example that Foucault discuss
Michel Foucault saw history as a collection of innovative ideas, it wasn’t about the accuracy of the past, but rather exploring what was done. He was one of the first philosophers to acknowledge social features like self-identity or expression as “cultural constructions that vary throughout time and space, and thus they are worthy of historical exploration.” For example, women, prisoners, disabled individuals and homosexuals face stipulated power, constraints and control exerted over them during the nineteenth century and even now. Foucault’s power/knowledge concept is both productive and restrictive. It limits what individuals can do, while also opening new ways of acting and thinking about ourselves. By what means is power implemented, and is the role of power more extensive in the 21st
