Summary
In this program, Dr. Sun Xiaochun and others consider the roles of astronomy and astrology in China as they relate to the Mandate of Heaven: the belief that the power to rule derived from the power to predict the future. Records of ancient sky-watching, divination via oracle bones, revolutionary advances in timekeeping, and the remarkably accurate Chinese calendar are evaluated, as well as the sociopolitical contributions of Confucianism, Taoism, and, later, Christianity. For 3,000 years-until the fall of the last emperor, early in the 20th century-the Mandate was the key to power
