Chinese philosophies and ways of thinking have constantly been reinventing themselves. A new dynasty meant a new leader, which meant a new position taken on philosophy. As the Chinese empires expanded to include more regions and people, their philosophies and beliefs began to shape and transform from what they once were. In the early Shang dynasty, for instance, philosophic thought had little impact. The main focus of faith was deity based. Followers worshiped their ancestors and made ritual sacrifices to appease their deity, which was known as Shang Di. Then, when the Zhou dynasty, 1122-256 BCE, conquered the

According to the followers, attending Classes in Chinese is a good way to improve Chinese’s language level. At present, Internet slang is popular with teenagers and foreign languages like English are put on an important place while Chinese is neglected more and more by students. As a result, many young Chinese cannot speak or write properly. Worse still, even some CCTV presenters usually make some mistakes in a program, which reflects the worse status of Chinese language level. Thus, it is necessary for students to attend Chinese classes.

In Ming and Qing dynasty, Confucianism had influenced the Renaissance in Europe since the new idea formed by combining modern history, and it became the leading European spirit - an important Enlightenment thoughts origin. In addition, as shining treasure in Chinese traditional culture, more and more classical Chinese poems are translated into various foreign languages. The translation of classical Chinese poems plays an important role in the transmission of Chinese culture in the world.

My name's Yangbo and I was in a Chinese national school for ten years and then I came to an international school. After one year I found there are many differences between a Chinese school and an International school.First of all, people here all speak English, and teachers teach classes in English as well. It is a big problem for me because I never spoke English in Chinese school. Besides this, there is a lot more work to do in international schools such as the TOK essay which is about philosophy which I never learned in Chinese school. Another is the Extended Essay which needs 4,000 words. I've never written such a long essay.Actually, while I think IB school is harder it is better than

John Searle: The Chinese Room Argument
Is it possible for machines to think? How does the mind work? Are machines capable of working in the same manner as a mind, with the help of a program? These are questions that led to The Chinese Room Argument also known as the Thought Experiment conducted by John Searle. Two views were presented in this argument. One view suggests that it is possible for machines to think and understand and the other argues that machines or computers are incapable of doing so; rather they can just simulate what they see. My view is that computers are incapable of thinking or being conscious

One of Confucius’ most well-known educational philosophy was: “Teach students in accordance with their aptitude.” The founder of this accelerated learning school argued that Confucius said so because his youngest student was already 15 years old and he missed the important brain-forming stage. He said, if we start in early childhood when a child’s brain and psychological development are highly moldable, students’ abilities can be achieved from early training. Therefore, the school declares that “our

compiled by his students after his death. Because the Analects was not written as a systematic philosophy, it contains frequent contradictions and many of the philosophical doctrines are ambiguous. The Analects became the basis of the Chinese social lifestyle and the fundamental religious and philosophical point of view of most traditionalist Chinese intellectuals throughout history. The collection reveals Confucius as a person dedicated to the preservation of traditional ritual practices with an almost spiritual delight in performing ritual for its own sake.

An essential part of understanding religion in China is to understand their concept of Yin and Yang. Understanding the Yin and Yang philosophy allows you to have a fuller and better understanding of the Eastern Culture.
This symbol below (Yin-Yang) represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work.

Lyric poetry (as opposed to epic poetry) was often the speciality of courts and aristocratic circles, particularly in East Asia where songs were collected by the Chinese aristocracy as poems, the most notable being the Shijing or Book of Songs. Over a long period, the poetry of popular pre-literate balladry and song interpenetrated and eventually influenced poetry in the literary medium.

Taoism is a philosophical system that emerged in China. This philosophy is mainly based on the teachings of Lao Tzu. The Chinese word Tao means 'the Way', but it basically refers to the indescribable essence of the universe.

The main tenet of this religion is to live in accordance with the natural order of the universe.

Chinese lives revolved around Confucian teachings and beliefs. Confucian ideas and beliefs would come to shape the Chinese government. In addition, Confucian ideas would dominate Chinese society, and governed the Chinese's way of life. Then in 1949, the Communists swept into Beijing, and took power.

History of Chinese Education
Chinese education can be traced back to about 2200 B.C. during the ancient Xia Dynasty. It was exclusively an elite privilege during this time. It wasn’t until the advent of Confucianism 1000 years later that education became, in theory, accessible to common people.
The history of Chinese education is closely related to Confucian thought. Confucianism is a philosophy that is based on the teachings of a Chinese sage, philosopher and political advisor that lived from 551 BC – 479 BC. At first Confucianism was not China’s main philosophy and at times it was even persecuted. From the Han Dynasty until early modern times, however, Confucianism

Being a Chinese, I am surprised to see that Taoism is defined as a kind of religions and introduced in this humanities class that is comparing different world religions. Though I know that I do not learn about Taoism very well, I always thought I am correct that Taoism is a philosophy, rather than a religion, as far as I am a Chinese where the Taoism is found. To me, the Gods and Goddesses, like Emperor Jade, in religious Taoism are merely characters in fairy tales. I have never thought that these characters in myths would mean God of certain religion. And hence, I always thought Taoism is not a religion at all, but a philosophy that about life style. However, I was wrong. Taoism is in fact

Much of Chinese culture, literature and philosophy further developed during the Zhou dynasty (1046–256 BC).

Though moral relativism did not become a prominent topic in philosophy or elsewhere until the twentieth century, it has ancient origins. In the classical Greek world, both the historian Herodotus and the sophist Protagoras appeared to endorse some form of relativism (the latter attracted the attention of Plato in the Theaetetus). It should also be noted that the ancient Chinese Daoist philosopher Zhuangzi (formerly spelled Chuang-Tzu) put forward a nonobjectivist view that is sometimes interpreted as a kind of relativism.
Among the ancient Greek philosophers, moral diversity was widely acknowledged, but the more common nonobjectivist reaction was moral skepticism, the view that there is

Today in China Confucianism is one the recognized religions along with Taoism, Buddhism, Muslim, Protestantism, and Catholicism.

Confucianism in modern Chinese culture has seen revivals in Confucianism and President Hu Jintao developed the idea of “Harmonious Socialist Society” based upon Confucius ideals (Dr. Li Yiu, 2011). Confucius was considered a “backward thinker” (Ch. 06, pp. 248) during the early stages of the Chinese Communist government and his philosophy was believed to keep Chinese people in servitude to privileged, powerful social hierarchy standings. Now in modern times, the government of China has found a newfound sense to apply Confucius’ thinking because academic and business dealings with

This contribution is a key concept for future civilizations, because it was a unique way to show history. Hieroglyphics helped relate pictures and words together for the very first time.

philosophy includes Hindu philosophy and Buddhist philosophy. They include elements of nonmaterial pursuits, whereas another school of thought from India, Cārvāka, preached the enjoyment of the material world. As of 2012, Hinduism has around 1.1 billion adherents. The faith represents around 25% of Asia's population and is the second largest religion in Asia. However, it is mostly concentrated in South Asia. Christianity is also present in most Asian countries. Asian mythology is complex and diverse. The story of the Great Flood for example, as presented to Christians in the Old Testament, is first found in Mesopotamian mythology, in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Hindu mythology tells about an Avatar of the God Vishnu in the form of a fish who warned Manu of a terrible flood. In ancient Chinese mythology, Shan Hai Jing, the Chinese ruler Da Yu, had to spend 10 years to control a deluge which swept out most of ancient China and was aided by the goddess Nüwa who literally fixed the broken sky through which huge rains were pouring.
