CHINA IN THE SHADOW OF MR KONG
Part 4 : From Harmony to Discord
Music - Music was much enjoyed by Confucius who saw it as a basic element of human harmony.
Houses, Gardens and the Honourable man - With due Confucian regard for order and control over nature, the Chinese gardens are amongst the greatest beauties of the land.
Painting and the Honourable man - For many centuries Chinese painters have wonderfully depicted the people and the landscape.
Science - No society has done so much for science; their great qualities of curiosity and invention have been an immeasurable gift to the world.
Descent into chaos - As the Confucian ethic is dimmed and clouded by blind conservatism, battered by outside forces, Chinese society disintegrates.
