I believe that the Japanese and European feudal societies were more similar to each other than different. This is because the classes usually had the same power position, and jobs. Their warriors, though, were one of the most similar things in the societies. They both were very honorable, and both had codes that told them how to act, how to treat citiczens ect. They also both had to swear loyalty to their commanders/higher-ups.
I agree with you when you acknowledged the warriors and their code. I should have mentioned that myself, haha :)
I completely agree, because there were few differences with the two feudal pyramids. The biggest difference to me was that the Shogun was the highest for Japan and the king/queen ruled the Europe feudal system. Otherwise the two systems were really similar. Their order of groups and how they started.
Yea, I agree. The feudal pyramid made everyone's job have a meaning but the only things different in them, is the names but that is it.
I agree. Feudal societies seemed to differ mainly when it came to a class title or duty titles... Other than that, it seems the premises are almost exactly the same. I like how you included the warriors in your explanation, because yes- they do have similar honor codes, and if they're broken, there will be severe consequences to pay.
I agree because they both showed power and had a code of "honor" they both had something telling them how to treat citizens, war, anything, really. I think that they were more similar than they were different, although they were called not the same names, most meant the same power. Sure there were similar and different things but in all I would say they were more similar than different.
I think they were definitely similar rather than different. If you recall when we talked about the classes, the only difference was religion and that the King had the power. It was all straight forward with the systems and who was where. The warriors protected the peasants, and blah blah blah, and I would easily say that the feudal systems are basically the same.
I totally agree with you Claire. They definitely had way more things in common than differences. I am confused on how the warriors protected the peasants. I thought they protected the ruler or king?
I believe that the two feudal societies were more similar. There were few differences in that they both had different rulers. The Japan system had the Shogun ruling, and the emperor had little power at all. The Europe system had the king ruling at the top of the pyramid. I thought it was pretty cool that they both had a knights code to live by, and that they both started feudalism because of the same reason, they weren't being protected.
I would agree with you I think that there are a few differences but overall very alike.Also they did start for the same reason.
I agree Josie they were more similar but they did have some difference like the emperor had no power but the king had power. I also agree because the samurai and knight both had to fight for honor for the samurai it was Bushido and for the knight it is chivalry. I also agree because they started feudalism for the same reason to be protected.
I think that the European ans Japanese are mostly alike.They both have a code for there warriors.Also they mostly all hace rhe same people in the samd order eho have thr same power.only a few differences.
I think that they had more similarities than differences. When we were in our last class we had a worksheet called Fuedal Society. It explained to us about the European and Japanese systems and how they were compared. If you look off the sheet, you can tell that their is more similarities than differences. Such as slaves and a ruler.. which they both had.
I agree, I think that there were more similarities. The only thing was the different ruler. Other than that, they were the pretty much the same.
I agree Kiley. Looking at the situation as a Venn diagram of similarities and differences, it is much easier for me to find similarities. The society was run mostly the same.
I think that they were definitely more similar. They didn't have many differences besides who was the one in ruling power. Japan's was led by the their top warriors the shogun. Europe had their King ruling. Therefore other than that they were very similar.
I agree, they had different names for their leaders and jobs but in all they, for the most part, had the same place besides in the ruling power. I think that if anything it was all very similar.
I think they are more similar because they both had the same jobs like the knight and samurai they both had to protect the daimyo or noble. They also both started feudalism for the same reason for protection. They did have a couple difference like the emperor had no power and was not even on the pyramid but the king had power and was on the pyramid.
I agree, Daniel. By reading your response, I realized that both fighting classes had a code of honor, Bushido being apart of the Japanese system and Chivalry being apart of the European system. I also remembered that these fighting classes were important to both feudal systems for a sense of protection that the king and/or emperor was not providing.
I think that they are more similar to each other. They both revolve around the pyramid and the only thing different is that the names don't match. They still do have that people work for others starting from the bottom up. they also just help each other from the top up.
I think that they are more similar than different but their is a couple of differences. I think they are more similar because they both have soldiers, the peasant are both on the bottom of the feudal pyramid. The one difference is that in Europe the kings and queens were at the top and in Japan the emperor was not at the top.
Johnathan I totally agree with you. The knights and samurai were on the same level as each other.
I think that the Japanese and European feudal systems were mainly similar. I think this because in both systems, the peasants are at the bottom and the fighting classes are higher above. The only real difference is that the ruler at the top of the Japanese feudal pyramid is the emperor, with limited power due to the Shoguns, and the European system had kings, who had almost all power. Other than that, the systems are mostly the same, including that they both came about by lacking protection from their ruler.
I agree with you Libby that the both were similar and different. Also I agree that I think they are more similar than different.
I can agree Libby. In both societies, the people, peasants, were on the bottom of the pyramid. But, in Europe, the kings and queens were the highest on the pyramid. In the Japanese feudal society, the Shogun were highest.
There are definitely similarities and differences in each of the feudal societies but in my opinion they are more similar. They were both based on land and duty, both had warriors & lords, and both had a code of honor. One of the major differences is the role of the leader. And if you think the leader is important in this system, then maybe you might think these systems are more different than similar.
Of course, feudalism has the same concept, but there are slight differences between European and Japanese feudalism. They are both based off of land and duty, and both have sets of promises that the social classes have to follow when communicating with members of other classes, as well as a code of honor for warriors. Yes, the classes have different titles, and the punishments for breaking the honor code differentiate, but I would say they are more similar than different, when it comes to general Feudalism. That's also my opinion, so others may agree or disagree.
I believe that the feudal societies are more similar than different. One they are both based off of land and duty and most of your feudal pyramid looks the same. Your difference comes in when it is ranking your classes of importance, at the top of the Japanese feudal pyramid is the emperor and at the top of the European pyramid is the kings.
I think they were very similar. I think this because the king and emperor were on the same spot, the top. Also most classes had the same job as the other feudal pyramid.
I agree with you Mohammad, the classes did have the same jobs. Religion played a big role in the Europeian version. At one point the pope would have been ruling the land.
I agree mohammid. They kinda have the same jobs in a way.
The two Europeian and Japanese feudal "ways" are really alike, but they have some differences. The Japanese feudalism has to deal a lot with land and paying back. The Europeian version of has only two MAIN rulers which were the pope and the King. Otherwise in my opinion the y are very similar to each other
I agree with Tony. They are very similar.
I agree with you tony. Both feudal societies were very similar.
I think they are similar. They are similar because the roles are all the same with different names. The only different one is The King and Shogun.
I think Japan and eroupean futel society is very similar. The only major difrence is the people in that class. The layout is very similar.
I think Japenese and European feudal societies were more similar. I think they were similar because each class helped each other and had meaning. Each class had important roles in the kingdom. The only difference is that religion was very important in Europe and it changed the classes by giving the pope power.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
