Abstract
Xunzi, an important educator in the warring States period of ancient China, put forward many ideas about education. These views play an important role in the development of education in ancient China. The purpose of this paper is to explore the inspiration of Xunzi's educational views to modern education. By means of literature research, this paper studies the concept of Xunzi's education from three aspects: individual, teacher and society, and reaches a conclusion that the development of modern education requires individual efforts of learners, the improvement of educators' quality and the optimization of social education environment.
