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.

TOP REVIEWS FROM STRUCTURING VALUES IN MODERN CHINA
Very Interesting, and the lessons were engaging and enjoyable
Thank you so much, Prof Lagerwey and Coursera, for another brilliant journey.
A fascinating journey through the influences of Daoism and Buddhism on China's past and present.
This course teaches me a lot about how belief systems and religion shape values in our society. The course was comprehensive, it gives an impression of acquired great knowledge.
