The Analects is a text structured by a group of Confucius followers which noted key terms of ethical perspectives. The Analects are made up of hundreds of independent passages and is divided into twenty books. (http://www.indiana.edu/~p374/Analects_of_Confucius_%28Eno-2012%29.pdf) In the Analects, humaneness is an essential virtue that determines relationships and this then guaranties social harmony. This is clearly seen in the Analects text and can also be observed in social society in today’s world. Throughout my essay I will discuss what Confucius means about this virtue and how he values it, and will link it into the three sections of contemporary society: The increasing of human interconnections, the evolution of the human way of life and factors such as cultural and technology that have transformed.

The Floating World in Japanese Fiction is the product of many years of study. The book features extensive historical context and commentary on the Genroku Era of Japanese history, the time when the ukiyo lifestyle was born and thrived. Also, the book contains Hibbett 's translations of the works, and their original illustrations, he claims epitomize the spirit of the ukiyo movement. The preface introduces the most important Japanese words, which will all be repeated throughout Hibbett 's criticism. A reader without any significant knowledge of the Japanese language may easily fail to initially comprehend the difference between these three main terms: ukiyo, ukiyo-e, and ukiyo-zōshi.
The rights view denies these two faults. It denies that it is okay to kill if it is beneficial to others. While other views consider the differences of animals and humans, such as the inability of animals to think, behave morally, and be really conscious, the rights view considers the similarities between animals and humans more important. The basic similarity is that each experiences the subject of a life; each is a conscious creature having an individual welfare that has importance regardless of their usefulness to others. Different dimensions of people—their suffering and enjoyment, pleasure and pain, satisfaction and frustration—make a difference to the quality of life they live.
If animals are being experimented on then they have to be treated in an excellent manner to minimize their suffering. If the experiment didn`t kill them the pain alone could kill them but if they were fortunate enough not to die then they shouldn`t be thrown away if they are health or physically and mentally fine taken care of so no to affect their
The general explanation for Consequentialism is “the view that morality is all about producing the right kinds of overall consequences” (Chase, 2016). Mozi’s social ethics is consequentialist as he suggested the basic standard to judge whether a superior fulfill righteousness is whether he can bring benefits to people (Zhang, 2016) and he suggested people should practice all-embracing love so as to reach harmonious social performance. Likewise, Confucius’s social ethics is as consequentialist as is Mozi’s as he pursued the best consequences to the society. For instance, Confucius mentioned if people was led by laws and bound by punishments, although they would not commit crime, they would not shame; when people was led by morality and bound by rituals, they would not only know shame but go on the right path (Analects, 2.3). Both punishments and rituals can restrict people’s behavior and lead to social harmony but guiding people by rituals can lead to a better consequence.
