FYSE 1472 - Fate, Filial Piety, & Passion
*Fate, Filial Piety, and Passion in Chinese Civilization* In this seminar we will study the history of the ideas of /ming/ (fate), /xiao/ (filial piety), and /qing/ (passion) in Chinese civilization. The meanings of these terms have evolved over two thousand years, but the notions of /ming/ (one’s allotment in life), /xiao/ (one’s duty to one’s parents), and /qing/ (one’s sentiments or passions) have retained their central importance in China. We will discuss works of history, philosophy, literature, and film, as we consider ways in which people in the Chinese-speaking world have used these terms to express their ideas about the meaning of life and what it means to be human. 3 hrs. sem.
