Confucianism, one of the principal belief systems of East Asia, espouses the cultivation of virtue and morality through a process of self-cultivation and proper behavior in a system of familial and social relationships. Confucianism was a significant influence on traditional Vietnamese culture and politics. In the modern era, some Vietnamese thinkers argued for a return to an often-idealized conception of Confucianism in reaction to the rapid, often unsettling political and social changes of their time.
