Lecture 5: Scientific Concepts and Political Visions during the Late Qing Period


About the Lecture
The usual understanding of contemporary political thoughts often centres on the discussion of specific political texts. This lecture emphasizes that, aside from the political thoughts that we are familiar with, there had been great transformation in the mindset and attitude towards politics. This included the political visions that resulted from various loose scientific concepts.
