The eight cardinal virtues in traditional Chinese culture – filial piety, brotherhood, loyalty, trust, propriety, righteousness, integrity, and sense of shame – not only teach individuals how to conduct themselves, but also play an important role in the governance of a state. For many centuries, these virtues have been so closely incorporated into governance and institutionalization that they have not only influenced the traditional political scene, but also shaped the way of governance in contemporary China. By telling stories about the eight virtues, the book explores the governance philosophy with Chinese characteristics, and reveals the cultural legacy behind sound governance in China.
