Description

Our 'In a Nutshell' guide offers a quick and accessible introduction to the ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius, whose teachings have had such a resounding influence on the development of Far Eastern society and beyond. The author of the famous precept 'never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself' advocated an ethical system based on principles of humanity, integrity, filial piety and self-improvement, with the ultimate goal of social harmony. From China to Vietnam, Far Eastern rulers throughout the ages have adopted the Confucian belief system and fervently promoted its tenets. A knowledge of Confucian thought is essential to fully understand both the history and the present formation of Far Eastern culture.
