The Confucian Analects (literally translated as "discussion over Confucius' words") collects a record of the philosophy, discussions and day to day life of the great chinese scholar Confucius (551-479 BCE). Coming into existence during a particularly war-torn period in Chinese history know as the Spring and Autmn period, this text came about at a time of newfound literacy and burgeoning awareness in ancient chinese thought. Probably written posthumously over a period of many years by his disciples, Confucious' main values of propriety, rightiousness, loyalty and filial piety are repeated throughout the book via various examples and conversations. This code of ethics has come to form the backdrop of chinese conduct and is a core text in modern chinese education.
