This study analyzes the influence of the Pre-Qin Confucianism system of philosophical and ethical-sociopolitical teachings on modern Chinese philosophy. The influence of Pre-Qin Confucianism that can be observed in daily life, educational activities, economic activities and political activities are documented. The current shape of the Confucianism that is allowed in modern China is also studied.As a result of this study, the following conclusions are suggested: Although Confucianism was criticized during theCultural Revolution it was reconsidered, and is currently accepted as a kind of moral thought or ethical thought in various situations in modern China. Pre-Qin Confucianism and its social impact on modern China can be clearly observed in these four situations: daily life, educational activities, economic activities and political activities.The acceptance of Pre-Qin Confucianism on Chinese morality can be validated as having the potential to solving the various social problems in modern Chinese society. If we add some new considerations to Pre-Qin Confucianism and apply it in a renewed shape, it is suggested that Confucianism spirit will be restored in the Chinese mind and people may behave themselves in an honest manner.
