Lecture 4: The Two Major Intellectual Forces in Modern China


About the Lecture
This lecture suggests that during the final period of the Qing dynasty, two major intellectual forces — the pursuit of strength at almost any cost and the notion of assisting the weak — were intertwined, in conflict, or at times even merged as a whole.
