- Mohism, which rises in the Spring and Autumn Period, now ranks as a prominent school with Confucianism. However, there are great differences in the aims, goals and ways of education between Confucianism and Mohism. Mozi values people’s livelihood and advocates harmony. He advocates the implementation of equal education for all. He supports general education and practical education for individuals and social development. He promotes education of universal values and education related to military theory and practice for the realization of interpersonal and international harmony. The Mohist disciples, who are “righteous, eloquent and knowledgeable”, are virtuous, wise and brave. They are all good at practicing truth, academically and generously devoted to justice. They have become successful role models in the history of education in the Spring and Autumn Period. Mohist educational thought is of great enlightening significance to today’s educational system and personnel training.
