Confucius, Joseph A. Adler Dec 2009

Confucius, Joseph A. Adler

Joseph Adler

The man we call Confucius was the founder of a religio-philosophical tradition that became almost synonymous with Chinese culture. From the second century BCE to the beginning of the 20th century “Confucianism” (Rujiao, literally “the teaching of the scholars”) was the official ideology of the Chinese imperial government and the reigning philosophy of education. As such, its values eventually permeated all levels of Chinese society. Confucius thereby became a cultural icon and a symbol for both the glories and the failures of traditional Chinese culture.
