Confucianism is based on humanity, benevolence and goodness; it values age and the past, considering the latter an infallible model for the present. In old age, Lao Tzu left China, disappointed at humankind's intractability. Asked to record his teachings, he wrote the TAO TE CHING, offering mystical insights into the nature of things and providing a basis for a humane morality and a vision of political utopia. " ... 13-page Introduction by Tom Griffith. The ANALECTS is the only work of Confucius in this volume and TAO TE CHING is the only work of Lao Tzu included. .
