AbstractThe concept of ‘datong’ in Chinese philosophy was developed more than two millennia ago in the Confucian classics. It has been translated as ‘Great Unity,’ ‘Great Community,’ ‘Great Universality,’ ‘Great Similarity,’ ‘Grand Harmony,’ etc. In the ‘Liyun’ section of Liji (the Book of Rites), the concept of ‘datong’ was first introduced, and a distinction was drawn between the society of datongand that of xiaokang (translated as ‘Small Tranquility’ or ‘Lesser Prosperity’).
