  • POV: I took ASCE 2002 with de Bary and quite frankly, it was the most dense but also the most informative course I've ever taken. If you are capable of doing all the readings (and it was quite heavy, about 200-400 pp per week; someone on CULPA compared it to "keeping up with a 747"), then you will learn a lot about China and Japan, admittedly less about Korea. Also, most sections of ASCE 2002 are huge. De Bary only takes around 20 or so students.Ttan 06:18, 20 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Yeah, I know it's POV; I won't dispute it. Please integrate your own opinion to balance out my comments!  − Reaganaut  01:26, 21 May 2007 (EDT)


Plato didn't affect his culture nearly as much as Confucius? Plato>Aristotel>Organon>New Organon>Scientific Method; and this is just one of the branches. Not to mention the other philosophers, but Greek culture, being the paradigm of European, and therefore Western culture in general, and the philosophers that are a part of it, cannot be said to have not affected their culture, nearly as much or otherwise, as Confucius. 11:39, 28 August 2008 (EDT)
