The New Culture of the Song Dynasty (960-1279): “New culture” describes primarily the lives of the elite, the scholar- official class. Men of the elite in the Song were dependent upon their personal achievement, even when wealth and position in many cases made it easy for them to acquire the necessary education for success. The Civil Service Exam system for recruitment of scholars into public service, instituted in the Tang Dynasty, was put to effective use in the Song Dynasty. This system of official recruitment produced not aristocracy, but meritocracy. Members of the Song elite were leaders in government and in their communities. The Song cultural ideal is the statesman-scholar-artist, with a public life devoted to public service and a private life devoted to pursuit of scholarship and art.

China under the Song: China was the richest, most orderly, most culturally and technologically advanced portion of the world throughout the entire Song period (960- 1279), and especially during the Southern Song (1127-1279). The period from 960 to 1127 is known as the Northern Song.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
