  • Legalism- formed by Shang Yang. against  Confucianism, during the warring States period, school of thought.  “It is the position of the ruler, not the ruler himself or herself, that holds the power”. Special tactics and "secrets" are to be employed by the ruler to make sure others don't take over control of the state.
  • Confucianism- founded by confucius (551-479 B.C.E) stresses love...if everyone followed these laws life will be better
five fundamental relationships:
1.ruler to subject
2.father to son
3.husband to wife to brother
5.friend to friend

  • Assyrians-(1300-612 B.C.) From North Mesopotamia. Grew barley and raised cattle. Their good location (rainfall and good trade) led to enemies attacking them to conquer the land. Briefly gained power in 1300 B.C.E then died out until 900 B.C.E where they controlled Mesopotamia, egypt and some of Asia. Assyrians relied on their military, they were very militaristic (weapons, cavalry, strong men.) Their captives were either enslaved or killed.

He reigned long enough to allow the grandiose plan for his pyramid to be realized in his lifetime.[5]
