Confucius (551-479 BC) was a teacher and philosopher from China's Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC) who has had a lasting impact on Chinese culture. Today he is recognized internationally for his writings and sayings. His philosophy emphasized morality, correct social relationships, justice and sincerity. He championed strong family loyalty, respect for ancestors and elders by their children. Confucian thought has been influential through much of China’s long history, and continues to be held in high esteem.
