Confucianism

  1. 1.  The Latinized name Confucius, based on the honorific title Kong Fuzi (K'ung Fu-tzu), was created by 16th-century Jesuit missionaries in China.  The Confucian tradition was instrumental in shaping Chinese social relationships and moral thought.
  2. 2.  The affirmation of accepted values and norms of behavior in primary social institutions and basic human relationships.  Confucianism is reluctant to employ laws. In a society where relationships are considered more important than the laws themselves.
  3. 3. Confucius was a teacher to sons of the nobility at a time when formal education was just beginning in China. He traveled from region to region with a small group of disciples, a number of whom would become important government officials.
  4. 4. Confucius was not particularly famous during his lifetime, and even considered himself to be a failure. He longed to be the advisor to a powerful ruler, and he believed that such a ruler, with the right advice, could bring about an ideal world.
