The Chinese wants to follow their classical way of writing as in neo Confucianism. They don’t need other type of western or other foreign influential philosophy like they counter argument on Buddhism philosophy by classical writers from Analects. The Christian missionary in china gave a complaint that “IS there is any convenient method of stating that the doctrine of trinity which does not implies the grossest materialism?” all the indo western philosopher had some view about Chinese philosophers as the non followers of foreign philosophy. The classical philosophers in china. The most of the philosophers thinks that there is some barren in the classical philosophy. The constrains in the classical philosophy May leads to the poor philosophical view in the Chinese philosophy. The other philosophers counter argued about the defects in the classical philosophy. At the same time classical philosophy teaches the new way of philosophical view and it counter argued about the Buddhism philosophy, since the Buddhism philosophy were accepted in most of the other cultures. The some of the Chinese culture objects the Buddhism philosophy. The classical philosophy of Chinese followed the concepts of metaphysics that was enriched in Buddhism even though it gave different concepts on the Meta physics and it clearly seems to objects the concepts of the Chinese philosophy. The ancient influential writers like Zhu Li seem to be the lover of Confucianism, and he followed to undertake his writing in neo Confucianism. The Zhu Li and other influential writers during his period don’t want other culture philosophy to influence china.
The Analects is one of the philosophical writing of Confucian and it was followed by the classical writers as the neo Confucianism which had a great influence in Chinese philosophy and it objects some of the philosophical view of indo western philosophy, which results some of the Chinese had become the follower of Confucianism.
