Source text - English Confucianism
Towards the end of the Zhou Dynasty, as feudal lords squabbled over land holdings, a scholar and government minister by the name of Kong Fuzi—later latinized as Confucius by sixteenth-century Jesuits—gained students and followers as he taught the classics: the ancient Zhou-era Book of Documents, the Book of Odes, and The Book of Changes, a fortune-teller's text better known by its Han Dynasty name: the I Ching.
These texts were already ancient in Confucius's time. The respect that Confucius accorded them is perfectly in-line with his philosophy of filial piety, or near-religious respect for your parents or elders. Fundamentally, Confucianism is a philosophy of respect for the past.
Translation - Portuguese Confucionismo
Perto do fim da Dinastia Zhou, quando senhores feudais discutiam ruidosamente sobre propriedades de terra, um estudioso e ministro governamental chamado Kong Fuzi—mais tarde latinizado como Confúcio pelos jesuítas do século XVI—conquistou estudantes e seguidores ensinando os clássicos: as antigas obras da Era Zhou, o Clássico dos Documentos, o Livro das Odes, e o Livro das Mutações, um texto de um adivinho melhor conhecido pelo nome que receberia na Dinastia Han, o I Ching.
Estes textos já eram antigos na época em que Confúcio viveu. O respeito que Confúcio lhes atribui está perfeitamente de acordo com a sua filosofia de piedade filial, ou respeito quase religioso aos seus pais e aos anciãos. Fundamentalmente, o confucionismo é uma filosofia de respeito ao passado.
