Ethan: I visited a Taiwanese family last week. They really look after their grandparents well. Laura: That's because Confucianism still has an influence on Taiwanese society. Ethan: But, I suppose life is changing in Taiwan. Laura: Yes. Elderly people in Taiwan used to stay with the eldest son. But that has been changing over the past few years. Ethan: In what way has it been changing? Laura: Well, sometimes there isn't an eldest son. So, a daughter might look after them instead. What's more is that sometimes it's the daughters who get the best jobs these days. Ethan: So, Confucius thought family was important, eh? Laura: He did. But don't forget that he also had a plan for society as a whole. Ethan: What kind of plan? Laura: Well, he thought that everyone in society should act a certain way. There was a proper position for everyone. Ethan: He must be a great mentor for the Chinese. Laura: That's right. He is considered the greatest teacher in Chinese history. You may see Confucian temples in many Chinese and Taiwanese cities. Ethan: Will I have a chance to visit one in Taipei? Laura: Yes. The Taipei Confucius Temple is quite large. The architecture and decoration all follow the traditional manner and the principles of feng shui. It will really impress you!
