Post Classical Historical Analysis
Transcript of Post Classical Historical Analysis
Different categories arose from this as to point of view
Native Africans- Least
Traditional Muslims and Muslim Travelers
Accounts included things that cought his attention Sub-Saharan Africa's history was recorded and can be viewed from the perspective of the those living within the culture, pre-islam and post-islam, and from differing religious perspectives coming from outsiders. Some points of view
Technologically/Intellectually brilliant and very advanced
Mayan Pyramids/Temples Samurai have a strong, set reputation as the disciplined warrior of their land.
Self-dependent and followed moral principles.
The way that information is exposed to people in modern times depends on the historian that recorded that piece of information.
First hand documents give historians a more accurate expression within different topics. The way history is viewed from historians has many distinctive perspectives which can change how that piece of history is seen from many different people. Within the history of Japan, historians have written and recorded countless facts about different topics within the culture. Mayans have been viewed and depicted throughout history as both brilliant for their intellectual and cultural customs and barbaric for some of their religious practices. Sub-Saharan Africa Japan Women Maya People of Wa
Information divulged that they were not too much a complex civilization. “History of Wei Dynasty”
The document repeatedly uses the word “Wa”, which was a derogatory term used to refer to Japanese people. Mayans are sometimes depicted only for their technological advancements, however when looking at other PERSIA categories it can be seen that calling them a technologically advanced society would be leaving much out. Historians' diverse interpretations play a role in how history is recorded in that different point of views and different situations effect records of history and the influence of history itself. The way that we learn and absorb facts and gain knowledge about our past is through historians, which increases our dependency on them. The question, though, is...
What perspective do they see from? How can historians' varying interpretations of history play a role in how history is recorded (in the post-classical period)? What were some of the diverse interpretations for historical analysis that arose during the Postclassical? Cultural Acceptance:
Confucianists' ideas put women below all
New traditions were also made oppressing women further Religious Acceptance:
Buddhism was trying for more equality but couldn't compete with ancient traditions.
Islam and Confucianism however were the opposite, still putting men over women Savages, barbarians
Recorders also stated that; because of their horrifying religious sacrifices, the Mayans savageness played a role in their collapse "What I Approved of and Disapproved of..." Historians' diverse interpretations play a role in how history is recorded in that different point of views and different situations effect records of history and the influence of history itself. The post classical period is no exception to this which can easily be exposed by the way historians have viewed Sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Asia, the Mayan culture, and Japan. The post classical period is no exception to this which can easily be exposed by four examples in the way historians have viewed Mayan culture, Women's roles, Japanese culture and Samurai, and Sub-Saharan Africa post-Islamic expansion into the region. Which leads into the questions:
How do we understand the past?
As humans, is that sometimes based more on what we want to see, than what we actually see?
