Filial Piety in China

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 7:00 PM

In this lecture, Professor Lixia Zhu draws from the experiences of two prestigious families in Shanghai to illustrate the importance of filial piety in Chinese society and its impact on the fortune of the family and the country.  Free.  Registration required.  In Mandarin. 

上海的繁荣源自于明代的豪门望族。陆家嘴,东方明珠的所在地,原为明代豪门望族陆深家族的园林。虽然陆氏家族凋零于明代亡国前,但顾氏家族则一直持续到清朝,民国时期。上海著名园林《豫园》则是一个当官的儿子作为父亲祝寿的礼品。这说明“孝”是中国传统文化的重要组成部分,不仅关联到一个家族的兴旺,而且影响到一个民族一个国家的存亡。此次讲座由朱丽霞教授主讲。座位有限,请预先报名。查询请到 www.yourlibrary.ca/events 或打电话 604-231-6413。
