Course Description:

The, A History of Chinese Civilization course, is made up of the history of Chinese technology and that of the Chinese culture. Owing to the limited time and the fact that undergraduates will already have some knowledge of Chinese technology, this course will mainly introduce Chinese culture. The main aims are to enable students to get a framework of Chinese culture; to understand the basic patterns, categories, concepts, contents of classics and their relevant English versions; and to understand the far-reaching significance of the profound Chinese culture. Its framework will include Chinese Mythology; Chinese Confucianism; Buddhism; Taoism; Legalism and other schools of thought; and the Chinese religious, literary, historic, aesthetic and educational traditions.  However, our goal is to cultivate the sense of pride and confidence among students for their national culture, but not to stir up culture chauvinism. The aim is for students to develop the ability to look at other cultures objectively and pick out shared values for a more harmonious globalized future.
