PART 5: CONFUCIUS AND GLOBAL CIVILIZATION

Confucius is of China but also of the world. For over two-thousand years, the Confucian Doctrine has scaled mountain ranges and passed across oceans. From near to far, spreading to the globe, Confucianism has made important contributions to global civilization. In East and Southeast Asia, Confucianism became a common cultural keynote in across many nations. Through translation of the Classics and methods, Confucianism was taken to the Western world and became an inspiration for modern thought and a spiritual motivation. Today China, who inherited the outstanding traditions of Confucian culture, will play a unique role in building the shared future of humankind.
