Abstract
This article discusses the revaluation of Confucianism in the contemporary People's Republic of China. It argues that, in the same way as Confucianism served as an identity marker for the Chinese people in imperial times, also in contemporary China, where the Marxist-Leninist ideology of the Chinese Communist Party is increasingly questioned, Confucianism serves this traditional purpose of identity marker.
