Taiwan Korea Vietnam Timeline 546- Conquest of the Ionian Greeks by the Persians Confucius lived between 551 and 479 BC
456- Completion of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia Confucius Chinese Philosopher and Editor Kung Fu Tzu Lived from 551 to 479 BC Believed his philosophy could transform individuals and society into a more harmonious unit By: Madi Lobet and Chloe Salatino The Divine There really is no God. Confuscius is not a God persay
But more a philosopher who aims at battering society Believed in the all great God Tao who was
thought to manifest Yang (or energy) and Yin (the passive form of energy) Tao or the Great Ultimate was thought to be the "I"
In this religion, the first cause of the universe and the
being that flows through all life but was not a personal being Human Relation It is believed that we are beings of
Tao meaning we came from him. We were put on this Earth to better ourselves
And Society Bibliography Wor Wors Worship There was nothing really considered as worship He had seven steps that he believed we should follow in order to achieve social transformation and to bring about the ideal society 1. The investigation of things and variables
to discover their nature and to determine
how they are connected. 2. The completion of knowledge. Determining why things are the way
they are related. This is truth, or Tao, and the discovery of Tao
empowers a person's transformation. 3. Sincerity of thought. The desire for transformation
and change in accordance with Tao must be sincere.
Sincerity reaches full expression in the ability to
foreknow. 4. Rectifying the heart. It is important to have proper motivations
for change, motivations that are good for the self and for society
as a whole. Virtue and moral self is the goal, and it is achieved
through the integration of Jen (humanity, benevolence, perfect virtue,
compassion and love,) Yi (or righteousness) and Li ( politeness and respect)
and wisdom. This will free the self from evil and provide the moral courage
and the ability to do good.
5. Cultivation of the person. Integrating the knowledge self.(steps one and two ) and the moral self (ssteps three and four) through self discipline, or education and self improvement. 6. Regulating the family. The practice of self discipline
within the family through honoring parents, respecion
and caring for siblings and loving children. Understanding
the weaknesses of those one likes, spoppreciating
the strength of those one dislikes, toward the end of avoiding
prejudice and disharmony. 7. Governance of the state. A good state will provide
public education, will set polices to care for vulnearble people,
make pocolicies based on public opinion, appoint and elect capable,
moral people, and apply principles of "mean" management.
Good public administration should lead to ideal harmonious state. "Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart." Relation to Christianity Confucianism is very different from Christianity because they didnt believe in one set God but rather the all great Tao and other spiritual beings such an yin and yang whereas in Christianity we believe in One God who is in charge of all things www. pickatrail.com/jupiter/map/vietnam.gif http://images.google.com/ http://www.faithresource.com/showcase
