Confucianism vs. Taoism
by Nathaniel Louis Mayflower III
If an Asian family was influenced by China, they would:
-Try their best to fulfill the part in society that was given to them by their superior and do it with joy
-The children would respect and do what their older siblings, parents, or somebody higher in society has asked them to do something
Yin and Yang
Yin and Yang was a symbol to symbolize the good (white) and the bad (Black) in everyday life
This is a beautiful picture of Confucius himself
All of these are ideas that Confucius believed people should live in their everyday life
Are Taoist principles relevant to the issues we have today?
-They didn't believe in killing, stealing, or fighting over one another, so yes these are still common issues that we have today
How does all of this fit together in terms of people, religion, and thinking?
-People would live and think of Confucius and his ideas everyday day and night, and everything in between
-In Ancient China, people would go through the day thinking of their religion and what was best to do for the entire society they live in
