China's past, present and future 讲座:中国的过去与现在及未来 Part of Qiu Zhijie: Journeys without Arrivals

18/05/2017 - 29/06/2017
18:45 - 20:45
Lectures on China's past, present and future

China is never out of the papers these days, yet there are all still so many things we don’t know about it. In 2016 Ruben Terlou fascinated us with his series “Langs de oevers van de Yangtze” (Along the banks of the Yangtze) (VPRO). At the same time Chinese artists have a growing profile: from Ai Wei Wei to Qiu Zhijie. While for many people the phrase “Made in China” is still associated with cheap plastic, leaders like Donald Trump feel that their prosperity and security is under serious threat from the Chinese advance.

So what is it about this country which has been making an impression since time immemorial? After a two hundred year dip during which China was isolated or colonised, the country has made a big comeback. What are the characteristics of this country in the cultural, economic and political fields? What are its strengths and weaknesses? And what do Confucius, Marx and Mao have to offer us today?

As part of the Qiu Zhijie programme, Journeys without Arrivals, over three evenings you can hear about the successes, trials and tribulations of China. Our host will be Evert Jan Ouweneel. He is a cultural philosopher with many years experience of describing cultural developments and is interested in the reasons behind events and their interrelationships. He has entertained large audiences with one-day seminars. He coached diplomats at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and has frequently advised top civil servants in the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food on China. 

Dates

Thursday 18 May: (SOLD OUT)
THE PAST – In one evening we walk through 5000 years of Chinese civilisation, with attention devoted to the “mandate of heaven” which determined the rise and fall of many dynasties, the centuries that China was ahead in the world, how Europe colonised China, and the crisis of the past two hundred years. 

Thursday 8 June: 
TODAY – A comparison of Chinese and Western thought with attention devoted, amongst other things, to family-focused thinking in China and the contractual thinking in Western Europe, to Taoism, Confucianism and Chinese communism, and to the and/and way of thinking of the Chinese and the either/or way of thinking of the West.

Thursday 29 June: 
THE FUTURE – A clarifying insight into the six ingredients of China’s new role in the world. These are the masses, progress, cash, control, brainpower and hope. Many factors will be considered that obstruct and promote China’s future.

The lectures will be given in Dutch. The programme lasts from 6.45 p.m. to 8.45 p.m.

中国在这些年中从未离开过全世界人民的视线,但其中还是有很多很多我们未知的东西。在2016年,一位荷兰的摄影师Ruben在中国拍摄了一部让人着迷的纪录片,它的名字是《沿着长江岸边走》(VPRO),而它记录了普通中国人的生活。同时,从中国艺术家艾未未到邱志杰,他们名声也有了提高。然而,在许多人的眼中,“中国制造”的标签还是让人联想到廉价的货物,而像Donald Trump这样的国家领导却从中国的繁荣与安全中感受到了威胁。

所以,这是中国自古以来一直存在的印象吗?在经过两百年的被孤立与殖民,中国终于东山再起。然而,什么是中国的文化,经济和政治的特点?同时,孔子、马克思和毛泽东思想又给我们的今天又带来了什么?

作为邱志杰:永不完结的旅程的项目的一部分,您将有机会通过我们的主办人Evert Jan Ouweneel先生在其中一天的研讨会中以一名文化哲学家的身份来讲述中国的成功、痛苦与磨难, 而他本人在讲述主要社会发展方面拥有丰富的经验并且了解这些东西隐藏的意义与关系。同时,Evert Jan Ouweneel 先生在外交部指导外交官有关方面的做法并经常在中国农业部给官员们提出他的建议。

讲座时间与主题安排:

518日,星期四:
中国的过去:在这个晚上,我们将通过讲述“天命”为主题的各个朝代的兴衰,中国在当时领先于世界的东西,欧洲如何殖民中国和中国近两百年的危机,而这些正是中国的五千年文明发展的重要历史。

68日,星期四:
中国的现状:比较中西方思想与文化的差异。通过对比中国家庭式想法和西欧契约式想法,讲述道家、儒家思想和中国共产主义思想,比较中国人的思维方式和西方人的思维方式来让您认识到中西方思想与文化的差异。

629日,星期四:
中国的未来:通过六个方面来透彻的了解中国在这个世界上扮演的新角色。这六个方面分别是质量、进步、现金、控制、智力和希望。而阻碍或促进中国未来的发展有许许多多的因素。
