Confucianism is an East Asian school of ethical, philosophical, and (more contentiously) religious thought originally developed from the teachings of the early Chinese sage Confucius (551 - 479 B.C.E.). As a school of thought, it is primarily focused on morality, interpersonal ethics and the cultivation of the civility, which is understood to contribute to the establishment of a harmonious and well-ordered society. All who studied and practiced Confucianism aimed at harmonious relationships that would result in greater peace in their countries. It might be considered a state religion of some East Asian countries, because of governmental promotion of Confucian philosophies. Elements of Confucianism, though it is no longer widely practiced, persist in many Asian cultures.
