Who was Confucious?

Welcome to your learning resource.


Confucius was a famous Chinese educator and philosopher who’s ideals completely changed the philosophy of the eastern world forever.

Born into poverty and hardship, Confucius focused on his education intensely from a young age and grew into one of the most respected intellectuals in China in his time.

He developed many ideas about morality, responsibility, character and government, which we call Confucianism.

Although he died without knowing how powerful his influence would be on the world, the Chinese government eventually adopted Confucianism as it’s official philosophy for more than 1,000 years.
