The humanistic spirit of ancient Chinese literati music reflects their contemplation and expression of life, nature, and human emotions, showcasing profound humanistic emotions and artistic pursuits. In ancient literati music, art and philosophy were combined to convey their unique understanding and emotional experience of the world through musical works. This humanistic spirit often manifests as emotional delicacy, aesthetic pursuit, and profound thinking. Ancient literati music is not only music itself, but also a cultural symbol that reflects the style and value orientation of society at that time. Through in-depth exploration and understanding of the humanistic spirit of ancient Chinese literati music, we can better appreciate the emotional world and aesthetic pursuits of the ancients, while also feeling the cultural connotations and spiritual power contained in music, so as to inherit and carry forward these precious musical heritages and continue to bring enlightenment and inspiration to contemporary society.
