my second view2019-03-05
During the whole vacation, I read the book the spirit of the Chinese people. After reading it, I have some ideas about some of the sentences. I want to share them here.
The spirit of the Chinese, also known as the great principles of spring and autumn, is gu hongming's most influential representative work in English. The book was published by the author in 1914 in China review, an English newspaper. It is an early representative work of cultural comparison between east and west. The purpose of gu hongming's discussion is to reveal the spiritual life of Chinese people and expound the eternal value of Chinese traditional culture. Since the late qing dynasty, China's image has been seriously distorted. Gu hongming, a maverick scholar with a good knowledge of both Chinese and western culture, published the Chinese spirit written in English in 1915. With his own pen, he maintained the dignity of Chinese culture and changed some westerners' prejudice against China.
The Chinese spirit this book was written by the great Mr. Koo ming-hung. It is a book of propaganda on the inherent nature, spirit and traditional culture of the Chinese people.
The first sentence is the Confucian essence of love, is the sense of responsibility and honor. As we all know, the Confucian culture is the most profound, the Chinese nation is one of the oldest culture and the core of the Confucian culture is benevolence, benevolence, love, love the people still love the country, want to do this, have a sense of responsibility and sense of honor in your heart, have the responsibility, can independently responsible for the people, the heart has the honor, will have important sense to the country, have the responsibility to have the honor, will take the initiative to assume their own a task. The second sentence is to know the real Chinese people and Chinese civilization, the man must be a deep, broad, and pure, the Chinese people is the essence of some of the silent, in the traditional culture of silence is golden ancient words, a deep, broad, a simple man also conforms to the Chinese traditional culture for the evaluation of a person, such a person is often considered polite word, deep often means has the connotation, broad mind means tolerance, means, and hundreds of thousands of years to promote the Chinese point of view, a simple man, often can let a person feel fully protected, has been to make people like it. People with deep, broad and simple character are often the representatives of the ideal personality. The third sentence is one of China's ancestor worship is not built on faith in the afterlife, but set up on the racial sustainable belief. I am agree with this sentence, the Chinese people for the key to the family and the family is very important, throughout history, historically, whether which dynasty, involve numerous family prosperity, is the same, the existence of a dynasty is often under the support of family, the ancient houses of large extent beyond our imagination, guarded system, and family tree, and some will some ritual activities every year, and is, in ancient times, when people do things in generally to family interests first, It's a continuation of the family, and the last sentence is a general comment on the book in a time when the spirit was sort of westernized and twisted, and Mr. Koo's book is nothing less than a spiritual medicine, and he saves an age
