A Confucian revival in Qufu

Seventy years ago, Confucius only existed in the pages of a textbook. But today, thanks to investments by the Qufu government, this legendary philosopher and his foundational ideas have become more tangible to people, while also boosting the cultural confidence of China. Confucianism has long shined as a philosophy that guides the great spirit of China. President Xi mentioned earlier this year that a country or a nation cannot be devoid of soul and here in Qufu, one critical part of that soul is seeing a brilliant renewal.
