Contemporary Chinese Thought 7 (3):4-39 (1976)
Although Mao Tse-tung opposes "honoring Confucius and reading the classics" and "promoting the old rites [li] and teaching the old thought," he admits that "during the long period of Chinese feudal society, a brilliant ancient culture was created" and that the valuable cultural legacy "stretching from Confucius to Sun Yat-sen" must be accepted with a critical spirit. In private conversation, Mao's appraisal of Confucius has never been one of complete dismissal. The fact that a skillful opportunist like Kuo Mo-jo dares to maintain a point of view that supports Confucius over Mo Tzu and that Yang Jung-kuo, Kuan Feng, Lin Chin-shih, and Ch'e Tai's radical anti-Confucianism has not gone to the point of a total repudiation obviously has some connection with Mao's own attitude
