500 BCE: Confucian

Confucian is based on the idea of ‘jen’ or good will and respect for other individuals.
Confucianism is a notion and belief system derived from ancient China, which arranged the
foundation of Chinese culture and it was founded by the Chinese philosopher Confucius. His
opinions on integrity and morals were written down by his followers in different books, such
as the Lunyu. Confucianism is based on the idea of “Do not do unto others what you would not
want others to do unto you.”
The main idea behind Confucianism is the significance of having doing good, which can have
an influence the world around us through the notion of “cosmic harmony.”. These morals are
usually attained through the virtue of ren, or “humanity,” which leads to good behaviours, such
as respect, philanthropy, and humbleness. Confucius also stressed on the importance of
education in order to have good character.
