Core Spirit and Function in Confucianism from the Perspective of Soft Power of Chinese Culture

Mingyan TANG

Abstract


The core spirit of Confucianism can be summarized as “virtue as the foundation, group as the importance and harmony as the quintessence” from the perspective of enhancing soft power of Chinese culture. The three elements are neither parallel nor primary-secondary but trine and synthesis of them represents the essence of the Confucian culture which not only plays the role in condensation, but also displays Chinese cultural unique characteristics, deep roots and universal value. These spiritual resources should be paid full attention in the process of constructing soft power of Chinese culture today.
