Taoism vs. Confucianism?

what’s up with these two? i’d like a detailed insight into what their conflicts have been with one another…basically the story on that
also, does Taoism have any other conflicts with other religions?
thank you for your help :0


  1. Confucianism was like when you had respect for your elders. elders were to set a good example while children and wife’s looked up and followed their example. confucius preached there were 5 basic relationships: ruler & subject, wife & husband, Older sibling & younger sibling, friend & friend, father & son.
    taoism (or daoism) was a way of living in which there were not many rules. This is where yin and yang come from. Through nature and harmony you can be happy. People who lived this way believed in letting things be. it was a very peaceful living Habit.
    these were both anchient chinese living styles. There were 3, confucianism, daoism, and legalism

  2. totally different.
    taoism is nature…hands off, if you get involved you have effed it up.
    confucianism…very structured. the govt as family unity. no words used that aren’t entirely honest, like say dead not passed away. lots of bowing and stuff.
