Home > Explore + Learn > Chinese art > China's Calligraphic Arts Six major scripts have developed over the course of more than three thousand years for writing Chinese characters, and all are still used in "artistic writing" (calligraphy) today.

China's Calligraphic Arts

Each of these styles of writing—oracle bone, seal, clerical, cursive, running, and standard—has distinct differences in appearance. Characters in seal script, for example, have symmetrical structures made with thin, even lines. Clerical script is recognized by its prominent down strokes, while running script more closely resembles informal handwriting. One script builds upon the other, as seen in the progression above, where each set of characters represents the word "dragon. " Dating to the thirteenth century BCE, the earliest examples of Chinese writing are found on bones, stones, and metal artifacts of ritual or historical importance.

The uncertain limits of intellectual freedom in China. In my last post about my time lecturing on property rights in China, I mentioned that many Chinese academics and intellectuals are very open about criticizing their government in private and semi-public settings.

Historical Photographs of China. Zhuangzi. Daoist Philosophy. Along with Confucianism, “Daoism” (sometimes called “Taoism“) is one of the two great indigenous philosophical traditions of China.

Daoist Philosophy

As an English term, Daoism corresponds to both Daojia (“Dao family” or “school of the Dao”), an early Han dynasty (c. 100s B.C.E.) term which describes so-called “philosophical” texts and thinkers such as Laozi and Zhuangzi, and Daojiao (“teaching of the Dao”), which describes various so-called “religious” movements dating from the late Han dynasty (c. 100s C.E.) onward. Thus, “Daoism” encompasses thought and practice that sometimes are viewed as “philosophical,” as “religious,” or as a combination of both. While modern scholars, especially those in the West, have been preoccupied with classifying Daoist material as either “philosophical” or “religious,” historically Daoists themselves have been uninterested in such categories and dichotomies.

An anxious superpower is confounded by a troubled economy.

What China Could Learn From Richard Nixon

For a generation, its growth has been envied; now that growth is decelerating sharply. For decades, it has shaped and guided its economy via tight control of its banks; now that lever is malfunctioning. For years, it has carefully managed its exchange rate and limited the flow of capital across its borders; now the dam is cracking. To anyone who keeps up with the news, the superpower would seem easy to identify: China. But for those with a long memory, it could just as well be the United States of the Nixon era.

Like China today, the United States of the 1970s experienced an abrupt economic slowdown. Visualizing China’s Anti-Corruption Campaign. Meanwhile, the campaign continues. Just last week, the CCDI released a communiqué promising to maintain “unabated forces and unchanging rhythm” in pursuing the goal of a China where, as Xi put it, officials are “unable and unwilling to be corrupt.” “Catching Tigers and Flies” is designed to give users a sense of the scope and character of the anti-corruption campaign by graphically rendering information about nearly 1,500 of its targets whose cases have been publicly announced either by the CCDI, its official media partners, or related Chinese government organs.

STR/AFP/Getty Images In 1979, when Jim Stigler was still a graduate student at the University of Michigan, he went to Japan to research teaching methods and found himself sitting in the back row of a crowded fourth-grade math class.

Xi Jinping on What’s Wrong with Contemporary Chinese Culture. At the Beijing Forum on Literature and Art last October, President Xi Jinping spoke to a high-level audience of arts professionals about the role of arts and culture in China. The event, along with excerpts of the October 15, 2014 speech, given in Beijing and titled “Talks at the Forum on Literature and Art Work,” were widely reported, but Xi's full remarks were not released publicly until last week, when Xinhua first published them. Xi’s speech serves as a reminder that the control of arts and culture continues to preoccupy China’s leaders, and that freedoms gained through market reform are still subject to control. The speech would have been widely circulated among the official cultural organizations that sent representatives to last year’s forum, including the China Film Association.

Once Again, Long Live Chairman Mao. WHEN Mao Zedong died, in 1976, and his wife, Jiang Qing, was arrested as the leading spirit in the Gang of Four, the Great Helmsman's legacy presented Deng Xiaoping, his reform-minded successor, with a dilemma. To de-emphasize Mao's legacy in China, as Khrushchev had tried to "de-Stalinize" the Soviet Union, would have shaken loose the keystone of the ideological arch that still held up the Chinese Communist Party's right to rule unilaterally in the name of the people. However, to continue emphasizing Mao's militant class-based ideology would have collided with the kinds of economic reforms that Deng, who had himself been accused of being a "capitalist roader," and had suffered grievously as a result of Mao's whimsical dictates during the Cultural Revolution, viewed as essential for the transformation of China into a modern country.

Deng adopted a strategy of distancing himself from Mao's legacy without entirely repudiating it. Confucius Comes Home. Young Style 青春派中英双字. H-Net Reviews. Chinese History And Culture.
