Über den Kurs

This sequence of four courses will propose a multi-disciplinary approach to the study of Chinese cultural history conceived of as a succession of modes of rationality (philosophical, bureaucratic, and economic). The focus will be on the moments of paradigm shift from one mode of rationality to another. For each of these moments, cultural facts and artifacts—thought, literature, ritual—will be examined in relationship to changing social, political, and economic systems. The first two courses will cover the periods of the Warring States (481-256 BCE) and the Period of Division (220-589 CE), with a brief excursion into the Han (206 BCE-220 CE). The Warring States laid the social and cultural foundations for the emergence of the imperial mode of rationality; the Period of Division saw the Buddhist “conquest” of China and the emergence of a rationality defined by the opposition of the Three Teachings to shamanism, that is, of a clear contrast between elite and popular culture. The third and fourth courses will focus on the emergence of modern China in the Song-Yuan (960-1368) and of today’s China 1850 to the present. We will see how the modern attack on religion, redefined as "superstition", led not only to religious reform movements but also to a society in which science and the nation became the primary value systems promoted by the state. The courses are listed below: A Critical Cultural History of China - Early China I: Intellectual Change in the Warring States and Han (481 BCE-220 CE) A Critical Cultural History of China - Early China II: Religious Transformation in the Period of Division (220-589 CE) A Critical Cultural History of China - Modern China I: Religion and Thought in the Song, Jin, and Yuan (960-1368) A Critical Cultural History of China - Modern China II: Structuring Values (1850-2015)...

The lectures could use more organizational structure. There is a difference between a viewing audience and a reading audience. Especially when listening, the audience needs to be introduced to an idea and that idea needs to be repeated more than once to get the point across. I feel that the teacher is trying to tell a story that rambles on and we aren't always sure whats important, and why its important, and the characters seem to jump around back and forth through time. The teacher is obviously quite learned but the whole pedagogical style isn't well suited to online learning.

The course is at the same time fascinanting, but it also is very demanding. You need to learn a lot of changes in the period, dozens of scholars names, many references to the writings of those scholars and learn the role of the State regarding religions

Challenging course but it was very satisfying to be able to glimpse the complexity of religious thought in China during the Song, Jin, and Yuan. Thanks you, Professor..on to Part 4!

Great.It brought me closer to China and my teenage beliefs. I feel like reading more about it. I will buy the book on which the course is based.
