The Ethical Concepts of Confucius' Moral PhilosophyUniversity Research JournalPages No. 132-139The Confucius' principle of Jen, Yi, Li, Chih form a framework of ideals that allows the individual to become a 'being' of pure, unlimited virtue.These qualities are interconnected and dependent on each other for the assimilation of moral principles. The people must be sincere in his efforts while learning these principles, and has a genuine desire to live the virtuous life. Consequently, he expresses authenticity in words and deeds, and has an unselfish desire to expand his capacity for learning.

A study of some Kachin folk-tales from the philosophical point of viewUniversity of Myitkyina Research JournalPages No. 76-82Folk tales means a tales circulated by word of mouth. So, folk tales belong to the oral tradition of narrative literature. Folk tales represent the richness of cultural heritage of the concerned society. Kachin folk tales feature the culture and tradition of Kachin people. Listening to the stories several times can help us to understand the events of the natural world better and learn more about animals in the environment. People who listen to the stories speak more eloquently than the people who do not know the habit of listening to the stories telling are more likely to have politeness, compassion and social awareness. So, Kachin Folk tales can give the philosophical aspects on Kachin social and culture ways of life.
