Confucianism


Ru character
Confucianism is a system of ethical, philosopical, moral, social, political and religious thought based on the teachings on the Chinese philosopher-sage Confucius (551 to 479 BCE).

There is some debate about whether Confucianism should be considered as a religion. While it prescribes many rituals, very little of it seems like worship or other religious practices. Additionally, Confucius made some statements, which to modern Western ears, sound distinctly agnostic.

On the other hand, Confucian ideas have had effects in East Asian societies which parallel those of religious movements in the West. Furthermore, people follow Confucianism does appear to serve many of the same roles in people's lives as religion does in other cultures.

There are believed to be around 150 million followers of Confucianism, the majority of whom live in Eastern China. Additionally, Confucianist thought has had a profound and lasting influence on many Asian cultures.
