Opening up the Empire: The relationship between philosophy and science in the opening and closing of China

Emperor Qianlong (1735-1799) decided to close China’s borders to European trade. In his edict, he claimed that his Empire had and knew everything it needed. The consequences were dire: Hong Kong fell to Great Britain and a series of European encroachments started. Some scholars trace the Emperor’s decision back to Confucian philosophy. Its emphasis on ethics and ritual lead to introverted policies. Daoism and Legalism, on the other hand, with their emphasis on nature and quasi-cybernetics lead to policies based on science and open for foreign influence. This interdisciplinary seminar addresses the relationship of philosophy, science, and openness in Imperial and present-day China.
