Abstract

Today’s Chinese culture is in fact the result of assimilation of cultures from other nations, countries and regions over the five or six thousand years. There had been two great tides of foreign cultural importation that made great impact on the development course of Chinese culture: One was Buddhism from India (there were also Nestorianism in the Tang Dynasty and arkagun in the Yuan Dynasty but both vanished due to certain historical reasons); Another one started from the end of the 16th century to the mid of 19th century, when the Western culture flooded in.
