Confucius (551 - 479 BC) is considered a great thinker and educator in Chinese history and one of the
great scholars in the world history. He was the founder of Confucianism, which constitutes a major part of
traditional Chinese culture. He has made tremendous contributions to the civilization of China and even the
world, for which UNESCO lists him as one of the world's top ten historical figures.
The Analects of Confucius, hereafter referred to as The Analects, has always been a classic for the
Chinese people over the past two thousand years. It is a collection of Confucius and his followers' words
and records of their deeds, complied by his disciples. The Analects, consisting of 20 chapters, embodies
Confucius' political ideas, ethics, and principles of education. The core value of The Analects is "benevolence".
