ABSTRACT

The Confucian’s ethical conclusion and understanding of the social ethical practice enable them recognize human beings themselves in the light of an ethical views. When the Confucian defines people as moral protocol, it moralized the human nature as well. The Confucian considers human’s virtuous nature as the characteristics of human as human beings. That is to say, good is endowed by nature. A heart of sympathy, a sense of shame, a sense of politely declining and just appraisal of right and wrong. These kinds of innate good are the beginning of moral consciousness. The Confucian also points out that they are only the beginning and foundation of the good, but not completed. If they can always extend and develop, they will become the four cardinal virtues: humanity, justice, protocol and wisdom. The Confucian affirms that man shouldcontrol his desire by morality. This is the Confucian’s ideal personality. It is also the certain reflection on the relationship of the human nature and social morality. The Confucian considers the most ideal personality is a sage, and then a man of moral integrity. In this paper, I have studied on the resources of Confucian’s ethic and global ethic.
