Confucius (551-479BC), whom everyone in China calls Kongzi meaning “Master Kong,” Confucius grew up without a father, was raised by his mother, married early, had a son, then left home and ascended in class to become an advisor to heads of state. His teach ings were less about reasoned arguments, like Socrates and the Greeks, and more about how to take proper action to become a person of noble character. As a conduit for Zhou era wisdom, Confucius shared this refined knowledge to benefit others. Confucius is one of China’s greatest rational philosophers, so students across the nation naturally make him the choice for their supernatural helping as they prepare for exams.
