It is often said that if you want to understand a city, you also have to dig deep into its culture.
This is the motto that Alisher, a Tajikistani who currently lives in Wenzhou, has been observing in his exploration of new cities.
In this video, we follow as he visits the Yongjia School Museum and explore Wenzhou's cultural charm.
The Yongjia School Museum is located in the Haitan Mountain Cultural Park in Wenzhou. Han Yue, who is in charge of the museum, told Alisher that Yongjia School is a school of thought that originated in Wenzhou during the Song Dynasty (960-1279). A group of advanced scholars such as Xue Jixuan, Chen Fuliang and Ye Shi promoted academic innovations and put forward academic ideas such as humanistic pragmatism.
After learning about the scholars' life stories, Alisher said he felt like he had traveled back to the Song Dynasty and talked personally with ancient scholars, which deepened his understanding of the Yongjia School of Thought.
"I hope that I can have the opportunity to spread the academic thoughts of the Yongjia School around the world in the future," Alisher said.
