Confucius – a summary

Speaking of social stability – Confucius is central…. These summaries are really worth the read!
Excerpt: “It is also what a Chinese sociologist called a “diffused religion”; its institutions were not a separate church, but those of society, family, school, and state; its priests were not separate liturgical specialists, but parents, teachers, and officials. Confucianism was part of the Chinese social fabric and way of life; to Confucians, everyday life was the arena of religion.”
This really resonates! 🙂
Excerpt: “:The burning issue of the day was: If it is not the ancestral and nature spirits, what then is the basis of a stable, unified, and enduring social order?”
