  • The Development of Saudi Arabia in King Fahd’s Era

    • Authors: Abdulmohsen Al Saud
      First page: 48
      Abstract: This article explores the development of Saudi Arabia during King Fahd’s era through research which highlights the challenges and reasons behind the decline in achieving five year plans. Saudi Arabia is one of those Middle Eastern countries, based on a traditional Islamic Law system, where the process of innovation is extremely slow. The purpose of the study was to focus on the policy implementations and improvements effected during the era of King Fahd and how they changed the economy of the Kingdom. The study also uncovered some of the achievements and limitations of the initiative to educate women in their chosen fields. The impact of the innovative development plans were explored, with education, industrial development, and trade identified as core focuses during the King Fahd era. The focus on these three aspects essentially resulted in the development of Saudi Arabia’s economic processes, although some failures suggested the need for further improvements through the application of new strategies. Moreover, there was a need for developmental procedures in education, industry and trade areas that ultimately affected the economy of the Kingdom.

  • Generation of a Historical Weapon Ge and Its Impacts on Huaxia Culture

    • Authors: Zhuo Lu
      First page: 57
      Abstract: The history of Huaxia (Chinese: , a historical concept representing the Chinese nation and civi-lization) is full of wars. Various weapons were developed that are suitable for ground combat with horse-drawn vehicles. The weapon Ge (Chinese: ) was already used before 221 BC (before the Qin Dynasty, ca. 221–206 BC), and disappeared in around 25 AD (at the end of Western Han Dynasty). In most other regions in the world, this type of weapon has hardly been used. The weapon axe was used in the ancient wars (in the same period) outside Ancient China (also called the Middle King-dom), such as in Mesopotamia (the area of the Tigris–Euphrates river system). However, the weapon axe is different from Ge, although there seem some similarities. This article provides an in-depth study and analysis of the reasons for the historic use of this unique weapon Ge, of its development in Ancient China, and of its influence on (military and civil) culture.

  • A Model of Protection of Intangible Cultural Heritage by Commercial
           Three-Dimensional Animation - Taking “Little Master of Brocade” as an

    • Authors: Yang Cao
      First page: 1
      Abstract: Though China has carried out protection of intangible cultural heritage by three-dimensional animation, to protect intangible cultural heritage by commercial three-dimensional animation still requires further discussion and promotion. “Little Master of Brocade” (Yun Jing Xiao Dang Jia) is a cartoon gaining a good reputation at home and abroad and it has achieved certain economic benefits and social and cultural benefits in respect of protection of intangible cultural heritage. On the basis the status of protection of intangible cultural heritage by three-dimensional animation, this paper discussed a new model and the future trend of protection of intangible cultural heritage by commercial three-dimensional animation by taking “Little Master of Brocade” (Yun Jing Xiao Dang Jia) as an example.

  • The Role of Martabat Tujuh within the Society of the Sultanate Buton Wolio

    • Authors: La Nalefo
      First page: 6
      Abstract: Martabat Tujuh laws that guided the State's administration on the sultanate of Buton were born because of (1) the existence of tyranny in society by the noble families, (2) the sultanate of Buton has no state constitution as a guideline for administering the government, and (3) the existence of people's hope with sultan to restore the economic crisis caused by the drought during that time.Martabat Tujuh laws in political life, society and religion contain the virtues of value, namely (1) ainda indamo arataa sumanomo karo implies that someone should prioritize the safety of self and family; (2) ainda indamo karo sumanomo lipu, implies that the interest of the state is more important than the personal interest, (3) ainda indamo lipu sumanomo sarah implies that the interest of the leader is more important than the interest of the state, (4) ainda indamo sarah sumanomo religion, implies that religion is more important than the government. In addition, it also gives direction to the people to feel the pain between each other (binci-binci kuli), love each other (pomama siaka), keep each other (popia piara), listen the truth (poangka angkataka), and give each other in deficiency (poma maeka).

  • A Sui Dynasty (581-618) Iron Buddha: The Tale of Two Filial Sons

    • Authors: Paul G. Fendos Jr
      First page: 19
      Abstract: This article aims to ascertain the date and significance of what appears to be a Sui Dynasty (581-618) Iron Buddha by closely examining the artifact and the inscription on it. After a preliminary attempt to determine the ‘style’ of the Iron Buddha, more in-depth comparative analyses of it are carried out that focus on reconstructed dynastic calendars and the sexagenary dates in them, Buddhist iconography from the same period and the formulaic narrative and prayer-like entreaty passages found on them, and a companion Stone Guanyin piece located in the Detroit Institute of Arts. Summing up the results, in addition to substantiating the inscribed date found on the Iron Buddha, these analyses demonstrate that the Iron Buddha and Stone Guanyin were part of a larger story, one that was being played out during the Northern & Southern Dynasties period, when Chinese social order and the Confucian ideology supporting it were declining, replaced in many areas by the growing influence of Daoism and Buddhism. This story centers on the tale of two filial sons who commissioned these pieces, hoping, in still following the centuries-long Confucian tradition, to honor their deceased Father, while doing so within the context of a rising Buddhist worldview, one in which they wished him freedom from pain and re-birth in a better place.

  • The Adoption of Neo-Confucianism in Discussing Legitimacy Dispute

    • Authors: Puning Liu
      First page: 43
      Abstract: Lipset (1960) denotes legitimacy as “the capacity of the system to engender and maintain the belief that the existing political institutions are the most appropriate ones for the society.” All political powers, including Chinese dynasties in history, needed legitimacy to ensure their governance. In general, Western thinkers who discuss political legitimacy could be identified into two groups (Habermas, 1979). The “empiricists”, likes Max Weber, studies legitimacy in an empirical method, focusing on the types, constitutions, functions, and evolutions of legitimacy. The second group consists of “normativists”, such as Plato and John Rawls, who tend to base legitimacy on various normative values such as justice or democracy. Pre-modern Chinese views on political legitimacy have the similar approaches like west. The first one pays attention to different empirical factors of legitimacy. For instance, the pre-Qin philosopher Zou Yan (305-240 BCE), and Western Han thinker Liu Xin (50 BCE-23 CE) view a dynasty’s legitimate by its adoption of rightful dynastic phase (Wang 2006). The Song Dynasty (960–1279) historian Ouyang Xiu  (1007-1072) argues that the just position and the unification of China make a legitimate dynasty (Rao 1996). The second approach bases legitimacy on normative values. For example, Confucius  (551-479 BCE) indicates that the rightfulness of a ruler relies on his properly practicing both “benevolence” (ren ), and “rites” (li ). Many present scholars give us their studies on the legitimacy in Chinese history. For instance, Rao Zong (1996) provides the general overviews of legitimacy in the Chinese tradition, with an extensive collection of relevant primary sources. Hou Deren (2009) introduces most relevant present-day Chinese studies on that issue. For English readers, general studies of traditional Chinese views on legitimacy can be found in the writings of Hok-lam Chan (1984) and Richard Davis (1983).
      Nevertheless, it is notable that the question of legitimacy became pressing from the 13th century onwards in China, when China was ruled by non-Chinese ruling houses, such as the Yuan Dynasty 元 (1272-1368) and Qing Dynasty  (1889-1912). Scholars during that period showed a great interest in discussing the question of what makes a legitimate ruler of China. In general, these scholars approached that question in two ways; they introduced the prevailing Neo-Confucianism to define the virtuous rule as the principal value of legitimacy (Bol, 2009), or they defined a Chinese ruled dynasty as legitimate. To reveal these scholars’ distinct views on legitimacy, this paper investigates two of them, the Yuan literatus Yang Weizhen  (1296-1370) and the Ming (1368-1644) scholar-official Fang Xiaoru  (1357-1402). For English readers, only Richard Davis (1983) gives a brief introduction on Yang Weizhen’s views on legitimacy. Few studies focus on Fang Xiaoru’s relevant views. Following the text analysis way, this article proves that Yang Weizhen and Fang Xiaoru acted as two representatives of scholars in the late imperial China. Both of them adopted Neo-Confucianism to discuss legitimacy, viewing the discussion of legitimacy as a moral evaluation of the dynasty and monarch. They also shared the idea that Chinese ruled dynasty should be viewed as legitimate.
