On the Agreement Between Confucius' Qi with the Ancient Greek Thoughts

ZHANG Si-qi;College of Chinese Language and Literature,Wuhan University;  
Confucius' Qi is a conception of moral coloring in the Analects,and in the Book of Rites,it is a notion linked with the will of man,especially with the spirit of man,which is of theological coloring.Stoics are ancient Greek philosophers abundantly discussing pneuma,a kind of matter linking both Qi and fire. However, it changed gradually into a notion of theological significance as the Stoic doctrine changed. Confucians and Taoists emerged almost simultaneously,and the Taoist doctrines may complete the Confucian doctrines. In the Taoist doctrines there is a notion relating properly with fire. This notion,however,changed gradually into a notion of theological significance as the Taoist doctrines changed. The Taoist doctrine of Qi is a stone arch bridge between the Chinese philosophy and the Greek counterpart,and Confucius and the Stoics are its two piers. Christianity and Taoism are two of the most important religions in the world. Between them there are agreements and disagreements as well. From matter to spirit,it is a leap of man's knowledge; from spirit to matter,it is the application of man's knowledge. We reasonably believe that in the interaction man will go forward assuredly to the Great Harmony.
