Analects of Confucius, The

Performed by:
Jim Killavey

Confucius emphasized morality, 'the proprieties' - correctness of social relationships - as well as justice and sincerity. A major goal of his conversations was to get his disciples to think deeply for themselves by relentless study of the world. Confucius' values gained prominence in China over all other doctrines and, in time, his thoughts were developed into a system of philosophy known as 'Confucianism.' It is difficult for people outside China to realize just how great an influence Confucius has had on Chinese thought. To this day, even in Communist China, there are temples to Confucius in almost every city and every year spectacular memorial ceremonies are held honoring Confucius and his philosophy.
