Good behaviors should be reinforced bad behaviors

This preview shows page 2 - 3 out of 3 pages.

our actions impact on others, we model behaviors for one another. Good behaviors should be reinforced, bad behaviors discouraged. You are never alone when you act. Every action affects someone else. f. Confucius wrote: If there be righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there be beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there be harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there be order in the nation, there will be peace in the world. g. Confucius emphasized Five Relationships : Husband and Wife, Older Brother and Younger Brother, Father and Son Friend and Friend, Prince and Subject. These relationships were the basis of social life. h. Three of the five pertain to the family which Confucius said was the basic unit of society. A father should be loving, a son reverential; an elder brother gentle, a younger brother respectful, a husband good, a wife “listening”; an elder friend considerate, a younger friend deferential a ruler benevolent, a subject loyal. The key to the success of a family is the concept of filial piety – the respect and high regard of children for their parents. i. How influential was Confucius? During the Han Dynasty (206 B.C – A.D 220) Confucianism became widely embraced. In 130 B.C it became the basic discipline for the training of government officials and remained so until the end of the dynastic system in 1912 – the year the Titanic sunk and President Wilson succeeded Taft.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
