A wide-ranging exploration of traditional Chinese views of mortality. Mortality in Traditional China is the definitive exploration of a complex and fascinating but little-understood subject.
Arguably, death as a concept has not been nearly as central a preoccupation in Chinese culture as it has been in the West. However, even in a society that seems to understand death as a part of life, responses to mortality are revealing and indicate much about what is valued and what is feared. This edited volume fills the lacuna on this subject, presenting an array of philosophical, artistic, historical, and religious perspectives on death during a variety of historical periods. Contributors look at material culture, including findings now available from the Mawangdui tomb excavations; consider death in Confucian, Daoist, and Buddhist traditions; and discuss death and the history and philosophy of war.

Soon after Taoism, came another philosophy called Confucianism. Founder of this philosophy was Confucius.
His philosophy holds that one should treat others with respect, politeness and kindness. This philosophy emphasized on two main qualities, i. There were two other important philosophical schools of this period. One was started by Mo Tzu, which states that the way to happiness was by treating everyone the same as they were treating their own families. The other was Legalism a kind of Confucianism , which believed that all people were basically bad, and were required to be kept in line by strict laws and harsh punishments in order to maintain order and peace.
Buddhism came into China during the rule of Emperor Ming of Han dynasty. He had seen a dream of a golden man wearing a shining halo. He questioned about his dream to his advisors. One of his advisors mentioned about existence of Buddha. Emperor Ming then sent a representative to Southern India to inquire about Buddhist preaching. Later these scriptures were sent to China on the back of white horses, after which the White Horse temple got named. In its early stages, Buddhism did not find many followers. However it was during AD, when Buddhism got a firm position in China.
Buddhism emphasizes that the world is transient and is constantly changing. It further states that world is soulless and there is nothing eternal in it.
