The greatest Chinese thinker KONG ZI is known outside of China under the Latin name of CONFUCIUS. He lived between 551 – 479 B.C. His concepts regarding society and humanity became known by means of his Analects, a significant book in which his disciples gathered his observations and teachings, which focused on the generosity and harmony between people. Confucianism had a tremendous influence on the history of China and not only. As of 2005, The Republic of China created the Confucius Institutes and Classes with the purpose of spreading the Chinese language and culture abroad. Nowadays there are over 350 Institutes and 250 Confucius Classes worldwide.
The Confucius Class (for Chinese language and literature), part of Ovidius University, benefits, on the one hand, from the presence of Chinese teachers, and on the other hand, from a fruitful collaboration with the Confucius Institute of Lucian Blaga University from Sibiu.
