The objective of this paper is to compare Confucian life, literature, and moral thoughts to how they should live ethically. It will show that, despite decades of history separating them, they both embody the same worldview. The paper begins by introducing the reader to Chinese government history and Confucius' time as a teacher. It will then go into greater detail on the significance of comprehending his point of view and moral beliefs, as well as their impact on China's political and cultural growth. It will next look at five Confucian precepts on social action in order to help you live your best life.

First and foremost, it is critical to study about Confucius' life and the impact he had on Chinese civilization and eastern philosophy, which is based on the fundamental concept that humans are fundamentally good. Education, self-reflection, and discipline could help to develop and actualize this inherent goodness. Ceremonies, music, archery, characterisation, writing, and mathematics are among the six arts that can be studied to improve one's character. Despite humanity's inherent goodness, Confucius had to deal with reality. He wondered if it was ever possible to fully achieve the status of a true gentleman. Finally, given this information, one can consider Confucius' teachings and compare them to modern theories.
