Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names, terms and concepts relevant to Confucianism and Dong Zhongshu. Dong Zhongshu, is best seen as a man who had reason to criticize much of what he saw around him and who had the courage to raise a protest against some of the ways in which public life was being organised and argue against decisions that affected large numbers of persons. As with other prophets his voice fell on deaf ears. There is nothing in Western Han records to warrant a belief that in his time 'Confucianism' existed as an ideal or an established way of controlling and enriching mankind, or that it had vanquished other modes of thought by a 'victory'.

Keywords: Confucianism; Dong Zhongshu
