The
 Inheritance
 and
 Modern
 Understanding
 of
 Chinese
 Tradition
 

Confucianism
 is
 the
 major
 philosophy
 composing
 Chinese
 traditional
 culture
 
for
  over
  two
  thousands
  years.
  Normally
  Confucianism
  is
  the
  main
  stream
  for
 
emperors
 to
 develop
 the
 system
 of
 civil
 servants.
 Other
 philosophies,
 like
 Taoism
 
and
 Buddhism,
 have
 deep
 influence
 to
 Chinese
 society.
 During
 the
 long
 history
 of
 
Chinese
  political
  history,
  Confucianism
  is
  highly
  improved
  to
  suit
  for
  resolving
 
political
  issues
  in
  addition
  to
  the
  original
  ideas
  of
  philosophy
  theory.
  Before
 
1911,
  the
  Chinese
  bourgeois
  democratic
  revolution
  led
  by
  Dr,
  Sun
  Yat-­‐sen
  which
 
overthrew
 the
 Qing
 Dynasty,
 most
 Chinese
 regard
 the
 traditional
 culture
 as
 the
 
key
 to
 their
 lives.
 Due
 to
 the
 invasion
 from
 western
 army,
 Chinese
 people
 start
 to
 
admire
  western
  culture,
  and
  the
  traditional
  culture
  was
  treated
  as
  evil.
  In
  the
 
bloody
  revolution
  war,
  the
  leaders
  always
  resort
  to
  western
  political
  theories
 
and
  crack
  down
  the
  Chinese
  traditions.
  After
  civil
  war
  during
  1945-­‐1949,
 
Chinese
  leaders
  still
  insisted
  that
  tradition
  is
  the
  evil
  to
  stop
  China
  to
  be
  the
 
modern
 country
 in
 the
 world.
 So
 Chinese
 leaders
 started
 a
 crazy
 campaign
 of
 the
 
Great
  Proletarian
  Cultural
  Revolution
  to
  destroy
  everything
  marked
  as
  old
  and
 
out-­‐of-­‐fashion,
  actually
  they
  were
  artifacts
  represent
  Chinese
  traditional
  culture.
 
In
 1978,
 Chinese
 new
 revolution
 in
 terms
 of
 reform
 and
 open
 policy
 started,
 the
