What are the biggest myths about Confucius
Who Was Confucius?
The love of learning
Confucius discovered his passion for science early on. “When I was 15, I dedicated myself to studying,” he later told his students. He studied music, math, classical Chinese literature, history, and more. He was particularly fascinated by the Zhou dynasty (1046 - 256 BC), a peaceful period that represented a golden age for him to be emulated.
He believed that education and contemplation would lead to virtue, and that those who wanted to command others must first cultivate self-discipline and moral superiority. He strove for a quick rise within the government, but aroused much resentment by his brisk demeanor. Still, he eventually gained an influential post as Minister of Crime in Lu State, but fell out of favor due to his aggressive reform efforts.
For years he tried to get back into the civil service in order to improve the empire from within. As a teacher, however, he was far more successful. Confucius broke with ancient traditions because he believed that everyone could benefit from education. He always encourages lifelong learning, "for his own sake," that is, to know and improve oneself. In doing so, he gathered a large group of followers who knew him as Kongfuzi (Master Kong). These students recorded his philosophy in the "Analects", the collected sayings of Confucius.
