“Confucianism” is a Western term that has no counterpart in Chinese. It encompasses a worldview, a social ethic, a political ideology, a scholarly tradition, and a way of life. Sometimes viewed as a philosophy and sometimes as a religion, it may be understood as an all-encompassing way of thinking and living that entails a profound human-centered religiousness. Even when professing themeselves to be Taoists and/or Buddhists, the Chinese poets seldom ceased being Confucian.
