This is an exegetical paper commencing from various parts of "The Analects of Confucius". The paper discusses concepts of human heartedness and righteousness, turning to the more dynamic society based on human love. The paper further discusses the "Will of Heaven", by Mozi and the works of Chan and Fung. The paper emphasizes Mozi's criticism of Confucian fatalism and the need for a still more dynamic social ethos.

From the Paper:

"The Analects, and Confucian thought, at large, mean rather different things to different people, and in terms of their influence upon Chinese thought, through time. Concepts of ren and jen, as they translate roughly to good or `human-heartedness', or `humanity', do contrast with what many more readers discern in the concept of yi, considered in English as `righteousness'. Confucian thought popularly associated with order or the regulation of society is found to offer a dynamic of universal love that seems much less reported."
