Lecture 2

講座內容 About the Lecture


The literati believed that the main responsibility of the country was to ‘educate’ and ‘nurture’ the people. However, since the 1840s, some utopian beliefs started to emerge. Such beliefs contended that the country could no longer bear the responsibility of educating and nurturing the people. Instead, there should be ‘a large clan system’ based on the beliefs of ‘Zongfa’ to replace the role of ‘the country’.

Moderator: Professor Siu Fu
