A Confucius Institute in Canada Confucius Institutes are non-profit institutions operated under the Government of the People's Republic of China whose stated aim is to promote Chinese language and culture, support local Chinese teaching internationally, and facilitate cultural exchanges. Confucius Institutes are sometimes compared to language and culture promotion organizations such as Britain's British Council, France's Alliance Française and Germany's Goethe-Institut. Unlike these organizations, however, Confucius Institutes are run directly by their government and they operate within established universities, colleges, and secondary schools around the world, providing funding, teachers and educational materials. This has raised concerns over their influence on academic freedom, the possibility of industrial espionage, and concerns that the institutes present a selective and politicized view of China as a means of advancing the country's soft power internationally.

On the surface, a sense of historicism-that things change and do not remain the same-is not conducive to the belief in timeless Confucian values. But the two paradoxically exist in Song Confucian scholars. Often, it was precisely because they were aware of historical changes--that things do not remain the same, that they wanted to hold on tenaciously to Confucian principles, to find something permanent within change. The Song Confucians
Confucius was introduced for the first time to the West as: Chinese philosopher,who flourished about five hundred years before the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Confucius' teachings have exercised such a molding influence that if the Oriental way of life were to be characterized in one word it would be "Confucian" Confucius was human, all-too-human, and the sagest of the sages. He did not pretend to be a prophet, but dedicated his whole life to save the mankind as a heavenly missionary. Confucius promised those who followed him no great riches, no secrets for worldly power or fame. Instead of gold or glory, he spoke only of a dream. Neo

For an easy life, there is no need to build mansion: In books are found houses of gold. When you go out, do not be upset if no one follows you: In books there will be a crowd of horses and carriages. If you wish to marry, don't be upset if you don't have a go-between: In books there are girls with faces like jade.
