ABSTRACT
The essay analyzes Confucian and Taoist perspectives on traditional Chinese values, investigating the impact that both Taoism and Confucianism has had on the minds and values of Chinese people, as they exerted a conspicuously noticeable and an enduring influence on most of the ancient and modern Chinese scholars. They even became, to some extent, a state of mind, a part of the national cultural atmosphere, rather than a set of tenets.
