Since 1979, following the end of China’s Cultural Revolution, academic studies on Confucius have resumed. In 1989, to celebrate the 2540th anniversary of the birth of Confucius, numerous academic activities were organised. As a result, the studies on Confucius reached a new stage. Since then, new trends have appeared in the studies on Confucius and Confucianism.
