Chinese culture is truly one of the great civilization our world has come across. It boasts a vast geographic expanse, over 4000 years of written history, as well as a rich and profound traditional society. Many aspects of Chinese civilization can be traced back many centuries. It is so diverse and unique, yet harmoniously blended, and presents itself a priceless benefit to the world.
Whats effects does religion have on culture? Why are they connected? Over time, humans have stopped hunting and gather to survive. Instead they have created civilizations as it is more effective. Religion and culture are connected because religion is the basis for civilization and culture. The Han Dynasty is structured with many different social classes, emperors being at the top. Confucianism played a big role on the social structure. Thus, the cultural setting of the dynasty was well documented. For example the many cultural achievements are known to us because they were written down.
New agricultural techniques, porcelain, metallurgy, printing, and naval technology were few of the technological elements that reinforced the established features of social order. New agricultural techniques helped in the expand of their agricultural potential, the dynasties gained reputation from porcelain technology which moderately diffused to other societies producing porcelain in large quantities, metallurgical techniques as well diffused to lands beyond China, printing produced texts quickly and popular works appeared in huge quantities, and naval technology included of the magnetic compass which soon became common for mariners to use. Population growth, patriarchal social structures, and gunpowder were technological elements reinforcing established features of political order. Population growth reflected the capacity of economy and distribution of food, patriarchal social structures included of concern to preserve family fortunes and foot binding, and gunpowder was an element used for military effectiveness. These aspects provided a fundamental change in traditions because they changed their whole concepts of how to use goods as in previous Chinese eras.
Change is always happening in the world, old things go and new things come. In traditional Chinese culture the changes are very apparent and passed down from generation to generation. The world looks or the “next thing,” making new traditions that challenge the old. This is shown as Yu-I was set free from everything she was held back by. Being set free in a China is a big deal because women and men were not treated equally, men were to be served by the women. Yu-I explained how she wanted to have filial piety, “[…]We married whoever our parents chose for us.” (68) Men in China have power, and for a woman to feel equal she had to feel as if she had the amount of power as the man and that she will be able to liv her life on her own without having
In Chapter 3 of Earth's and his people we because begin to see a continuation of chapter 2 where many civilizations began to emerge yet, while we also see the emergence of countries we also see the evolution of countries .
The geographical area of China is more than 9 million square kilometers and as a result, it is the fourth largest country in the world. There are several ethnic groups in China, the Han Chinese is the largest group, and it is found in almost all parts of the country. Other minority groups include Tibetan, Zhuang, Korean, and Mongol. The Chinese society is high context and non-verbal. The Chinese people acquire the knowledge of what they are supposed to do and say even if they are not told through conversation. Voice and facial expressions play a critical role in determining the feelings in a person. They do not have facial expressions when in a conversation. Direct eye contact is avoided because it is viewed as a symbol of disrespect (Clair & Norris, 2011).
It is very, very wrong on how the villagers and the woman’s family in this story treated the pregnant women, even if she did get pregnant from a man that wasn’t her husband. The worst possible thing to happen to someone in the Chinese society is to be neglected by your family after your death. It would be awful if your only defining moment in the eyes of your family was an adulterous act that brought embarrassment to your family. The village people tearing her house apart, killing her livestock, and stealing her stuff was awful but what was worse was the punishment she suffered was the neglect of her family. The ancient Chinese culture was very harsh on its women; I do not like how a culture in any period in history could treat women that way, as servants or as second
China has about five thousand years history which is a very long period of time. Also, the Chinese civilization was growing with these periods of time and it will continues greater than ever. Many wars and unhappinesses were happening during this period. Although, the time has passed, the histories and the civilizations have not passed. These family virtues, serious, working attitudes, sense of justice and the great Confucian tradition have been deeply assimilated into the Chinese people. Some Chinese traditions are different from North American’s. The Chinese culture has many special characteristics which are very interesting for people to learn.
The North Xin culture relics of more than 7300 years ago, for example, the ancient country of Teng, Xue and the other many ancient cultural relics. There are Many of the tombs of the Han Dynasty, the Ming Dynasty imperial concubine's tombs of the Emperor Yongle, and the stone portait disply of the Han Dynasty stone. They are the embodiment of the essence of the magical charm of the
Early chinese civilization was very well in control of Asia and assumed the role of ‘big brother” to its neighboring Asian countries of Japan, Vietnam, and Korea. Japan, Korea, and Vietnam were absolutely affected by China, being affected by Chinese religion, government, and sky’s the limit from there. Even if you look at current day Asia, those countries still possess a lot of Chinese influence.
Chinese agriculture has highly based a lot of Agriculture technology of the modern era.(ex.drainage ditches). But due to the time, China was very very Advanced compared to many of the civilizations of the time. the excelled in economy Agriculture and a lot of things but what I'm here to do.Is talk about how Chinese culture went through and how did its advance.
Confucianism is a popular Chinese religion that spans over the course of a thousands of years and has influenced China’s culture and beliefs. It is based around displaying virtues and morals that coincide with humanitarian beliefs. It is a wide standing belief throughout Asia which has existed since 500 B.C.E. and is worshipped by millions of people, making it one of the most well known and oldest religions in the world. Confucianism’s main philosophies are characterized by the display of virtues, humanness, and loyalty, all taught by the Chinese philosopher Confucius.
The unique guanxi culture in Chinese society sets its societal framework distinctively apart from the West. Although guanxi is often portrayed as one’s social network, it is much different from the so-called “connections” in Western society. Guanxi is a special social phenomenon in the Chinese societal context. It has survived throughout history and continues to be a prevalent trend because it has its Chinese characteristics and attributes that are not found in other societies. The existence of guanxi in Chinese society originated from the core Chinese value of collectivism. Since centuries ago, Chinese society’s group life and social organization has been based on collective interests. “Familial sentiments and obligations, [which were regarded as ethical relations], extended from the family into society [later on]”. The unofficial, informal networks of familial and kinship obligations provided the social support mechanisms through which peasant families survived in the economy of transition and hardships” (Bian, 2001, p.276). The twin themes of guanxi and the sense of hierarchy mutually enhance each other because private networks thrive through the existence of the principle of giving and reciprocating, which highlights that there is a dependent on a more resourceful party in the relationship. The future of the twin themes in China will continue to be built upon mutual reliance and the looked upon generous favour giver in bridging the connections between multiple parties.
Time orientation in the Chinese culture is another phenomenon related to Confucianism principles. The Chinese culture is very past-oriented, which according to Sagar means they “honor tradition and are respectful of elders” (2012, p. 59). This past-time orientation began because Confucius lived in a time where there were many wars and an overall decline in social morality, so he decided to look to the past for a better model to help reform society (Li, 2008). Confucianism, and therefore a large majority of Chinese culture, have been very past-oriented and looked to those that came before them with great respect and esteem ever since.
