This research paper describes the features of Confucianism and Taoism, philosophies which changed the way of life in China starting in the sixth century. Both Taoism and Confucianism and their values have been incorporated in the society as a way of life in China and other oriental countries. Taoism is one of the two great philosophical and religious traditions that became a way of life in China nearly 2500 years ago. The other philosophy that also originated in China is Confucianism. Both of these philosophies started around the same time in the sixth century B.C. For the past couple of centuries there have been three religions that have dominated the Chinese way of life, they are namely, Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism.
From the Paper:"Confucianism was founded by Confucius in the spring and autumn period (770 BC - 476 BC) and further developed by Menaces, thus called The Way of Confucius and Menaces (Confucianism). In the Han dynasty, Confucianism was adopted but other schools suppressed by the Han rulers to consolidate their reign. It was after the death of its originator that Confucianism flourished and became dominant in the Chinese history and culture for almost 2 millenniums. Later it even spread to Korea and Japan and has been influential in the two cultures. Confucianism had immensely impacted the Chinese civilization in ways unimaginable."
