In my opinion, Confucianism was a dominant principle in the feudal society. It ever confined the spiritual world of the people then, which brought about a lot of  damage to the people, especially the women at that time. To some extent, Confucianism held back the progressive step of the human history.

However, now in the new China, we are extremely open and outgoing toward the outside world. We can easily adapt to diversified thinkings. Confucianism is just an optioal doctrine among them. If you like, you can accept it and do as what it proclaims. Nobody will force you to accept it or not.

But, I would say that it is of vital importance for us to inherit all the positive elements of Confucianism and discard the negative ones. Making good use of the positive elements will undoubtedly be beneficial to China.

We should treat this issue dialectically.

How about say opinions?


It's high time we get a proper understanding of Confucianism. It has contributed to China's greatness as a nation for 3000 years, and will continue to do so. Of course, there were some lapses, especially when westernized intellectuals trying to change China tended to view him in a very negative light. Today, with the excesses we see in this world, Confucianism has suddenly taken on a significance that is timeless and universal. The same goes for Zhuang Zi and Lao Zi. We are beginning to understand better their concepts of the way of living as human beings. Yu Dan's  lectures on Kong Zi and Zhuang Zi can serve as a very good starting point.

Nothing is absolutely right ,so is confucianism.In the past it is considered the golden rule ,and confusius is also revered as saint .However ,as time changes ,what is right in the past may not be right today. what we need to do is to discard hose not right any more and retain those right .

Confucianism - like any other religion and/or way of thought - only survives with a people and/or country if it evolves with the people and/or country.  It is also dependant upon the pluarity of it ...
