The Kneighborhood of Knowledge

"Hey…Neighborhood is spelled wrong!"

Zhou Dynasty

The Shang Dynasty is over. Please remember why they were important.  They were the first dynasty in ancient China. They developed the first Chinese writing as seen in their oracle bones. They developed their useful bronze which was used in tools, weapons, vessels, and much more.

They were overpowered by the Zhou Dynasty. The Zhou ruled China longer than any other dynasty in Chinese history. The Zhou are known for many achievements as well, but we’ll talk about the three philosophies that developed in China during the reign of the Zhou Dynasty: Confucianism, Daoism, and Legalism.

Tomorrow we start discussing Confucianism.  Don’t be alarmed if you see a different seating arrangement.
