Book - Library

This very small "Classical book on the filial piety" recites a Confucius lesson to his disciple Zeng Shen ?? on how to behave towards a senior, be it the own father, an elder brother or the ruler. The dialog-like text has probably been compiled by Zeng Cans own disciples. In spite of its smallness, this text is the core of Confucian social thinking which gives every person a defined position in the social context. In the Confucianist's eyes, behaviour following ones own position assured the stability of the familiy, the society, and the state. Social disorder would end in chaos and war.
