Confucius (551-479 BCE), according to Chinese tradition, was a thinker, political figure, educator, and founder of the Ru School of Chinese thought. His teachings, preserved in the Analects , form the foundation of much of subsequent Chinese speculation on the education and comportment of the ideal man, how such an individual should live his live and interact with others, and the forms of society and government in which he should participate. Fung Yu-lan, one of the great 20 th century authorities on the history of Chinese thought, compares Confucius' influence in Chinese history with that of Socrates in the West.

Teachings of Confucius

Followers of Confucius
Later Confucian Works
As education and literacy spread in China and scholars became influential as ministers of rulers, philosophers also began to flourish. In the late sixth century BC two of the greatest philosophers of all time emerged in China - Lao-zi, the founder of Daoism, and Confucius, whose philosophy and religion came to dominate China for more than two millennia.
Confucius is the Latinized form of Kong Fu-zi, which means Kong the master. Confucius was born in the small state of Lu in 551 BC and died in 479 BC. This was a time of turmoil, political intrigue, and numerous small wars in the last part of the Spring and Autumn era. Assassinations, bribery, adultery, and other crimes were common even though punishments were severe. In Lu three families contended for the hereditary rulership, while numerous educated aristocrats sought positions in the government, and many suffered poverty. Confucius was brought up as a gentleman, who took up music, archery, and fishing, although he said he fished without a net and would not shoot at a bird at rest. He was so absorbed in music that once he did not know the taste of meat for three months. He also learned to do practical jobs of humble people such as keeper of the stores and head of the pastures. However, most of the time Confucius was not able to find an official position though he was willing to do anything that did not involve wrong-doing. Perhaps it was his ethical concerns that prevented him from being useful to the rulers of his time. Instead he occupied his time in what he loved the most - the pursuit of learning.

[Books] ... [Mailbag]
Photo by Victor Hugo Miranda Jr. To many people, Confucius is no more than the setup to a one-line joke. Few have heard or read any of his teachings. Yet the truth and importance of his words resonate today when they are heard, because Confucius' teachings developed in reaction to the times in which he lived and our times are very much like his. According to writings of the era, the days in which Confucius lived were, compared to the past, a time of moral chaos, in which common values were widely rejected or simply disregarded. Crime was on the rise, with robbery and theft increasing in the countryside and murder a serious problem in the cities and at court; there was a general lack of interest in trying to reintegrate criminals into society. The gulf between rich and poor was broad and growing, with the rich living extravagantly in enormous mansions while an abundance of food somehow failed to reach the hungry who needed it. Government was routinely corrupt and distrusted by the people, who didn't fail to observe the lack of productivity among the rich and powerful: as the chronicler Shu Xiang noted, "The ministers never go out to work in the field." The economy was changing as well. The productive class mostly farmers was shrinking, while the mercantile sector was growing. The marketplaces were flooded with goods described as being costly and of "no real utility." Part of the growing middle class was a sector of scholars, who had great difficulty finding employment.

Key characters Criticism of the Daoists The Way of Ren ... Links Confucius' world was made of elegant court ceremonies, with dance and music. He believed that if a set of rules of courtesy (called "ritual" LI ) were respected in society, relationships would become harmonious. But it also involved an inner awareness of the needs of others ("humanity" REN . Confucius stated the golden rule 400 years before the Bible: "What you do not wish for yourself, do not impose on others." (Analects 12:2).
And he had a sense of humor too:
"The Governor of She asked about Confucius. Zilu did not reply. The Master said: 'Why did you not say: He is the sort of man who, in his enthusiasm, forgets to eat, in his joy forgets to worry, and who ignores the approach of old age?" (7:19).

13. Confucius
Biographie et philosophie de confucius.
Confucius est né en Chine, il y a environ 2500 ans.
Confucius, en chinois Kongfuzi (551 à 479 avant J-C), philosophe chinois, fondateur du confucianisme, a été l’un des plus influents penseurs de l’histoire chinoise.
L’enseignement de Confucius est basé sur la morale et contient beaucoup de règles de vie pratique. Il a énoncé le premier la loi de bienveillance et de compassion: " Ne faites pas à autrui ce que vous ne voulez pas qu'on vous fasse"
Il a vécu à peu près à la même époque que Lao Tseu et Bouddha. Ils sont à l'origine des trois religions actuelles de la Chine.
La jeunesse
Confucius est né dans l’Etat de Lu dans une famille noble du clan Kong. Son père, gouverneur de la province de Lu, meurt trois ans après sa naissance, laissant la famille sans ressources. Confucius reçoit toutefois une éducation de haut niveau, notamment les traditions culturelles de la dynastie Chou. Il se marie à vingt-quatre ans et a un fils et deux filles. Il exerce momentanément des tâches domestiques pour le chef de la province.
Sa carrière d'instructeur
Sa mère meurt en 527 avant J-C. Au terme d’une période de deuil, il voyage et dispense son enseignement au petit groupe de disciples qui l’entoure alors. Il est rapidement réputé comme un homme de grande érudition et de caractère, profondément respectueux des idéaux de la tradition.

Confucianism " is a tradition that traces its beginnings to an educated elite called shi of late antiquity that advised royal and regional feudal authorities during the Zhou dynasty (1134-250 B.C.) on governing, which emphasized the importance of virtuous rule through benevolence and proper conduct called ritual ( li ). The most prominent figure of this educated elite was a man named Kong Qiu (551 to 479 B.C.), usually referred to as Master Kong (Kong-fu zi or Kongzi). In the West, Kongzi is called Confucius, a name given him by Jesuit missionaries in the sixteenth century. Kongzi was born in the Watch Tower (Queli) district of Qufu, then the capital of the state of Lu of the Zhou kingdom. Kongzi was the son of Shuliang He, who, according to some sources, was a descendant of a prestigious lessor branch of a ducal lineage of the neighboring state of Song. Kongzi was raised by his mother, Yan Zhengzai after his father died before he was three.
Confucian canon " became a critical part of the establishment of Confucianism as orthodoxy in the Song (960-1279), with the emergence of the civil service examination system as the most important means of appointment to positions in the bureaucracy.

17. The Way Of Confucius
Article on the Confucian sites of Qufu, with pictures.
document.write(''); Travel China Guide Confucius More Jeffrey Aaronson Images The Way of Confucius In a remote corner of eastern China, travelers tread the path of the ancient sage To Chinese of ages past, there was no place in all of the Middle Kingdom more revered than Qufu (pronounced Chu-fu), permeated as it was said to be by the spirit of China's greatest philosopher. Confucious, born in 551 B.C. , attracted increasing numbers of disciples to Qufu, a settlement on the Shandong plain in eastern China. A year after his death, in 479 B.C. , the sage's simple cottage in that small town was converted into a temple in his honor. The temple complex continued to grow until, by modern times, it encompassed 49 acres in the heart of Qufu. Today, that preserve of architectural treasures, in addition to the ancient Kong family mansion (home to the philosopher's descendants until the Communist takeover during the 1940s), constitutes one of the most important tourist sites in all of China. Though rarely visited by foreigners, Qufu draws throngs of Chinese to its splendors. A lively street scene, punctuated by the presence of food vendors, trinket sellers and cafés blaring karaoke music, gives way to the serenity of the temple precinct. Here, Chinese visitors crowd before a restored statue of the sage, many of them burning incense as a sign of respect, a sight unimaginable just a few years ago. And just north of the temple lies another vestige of a China lost in time. In an extraordinary walled forest known as the Kong Lin is the grave of Confucious: the Kongs have been buried in this place since the fifth century

East Asian technocrats and modernists in Beijing, among others, are eagerly embracing an updated Confucianism even as scholars in the West ask some eyebrow-raising questions. Did the Chinese sage really exist? If so, did he have much to do with the religious and ethical system that bears his name? Could Confucianism have been invented by Jesuit missionaries?

The online version of this article appears in two parts. Click here to go to part two.
O many educated Westerners, Confucius is the very emblem of Chinese civilization and religious belief. If the dates that historians have assigned to him 551-479 B.C. are correct, he was a contemporary of the Greek poet Pindar, the tragedian Aeschylus, and the philosopher Heraclitus. According to tradition, Confucius was easily their equal. In addition to having written or edited parts of a diverse body of literature that includes the I Ching Book of Changes ) and the Book of Poems, classics to this day, he was a scholar, a minister of state, and an accomplished horseman and archer. Confucius is said to have taught his disciples the cultivation of personal virtue (
