Abstract
Confucianism is one of the frequently mentioned social factors in the research of care for the older adults in East Asian
countries such as China, Taiwan, Japan, and Korea. Although Confucian philosophy functions as a powerful source of reference
for care, the context of care in Confucian texts is not yet largely studied in nursing. This column focuses on the meaning
of care in two key Confucian texts, the Analects and Mencius. The context of care in Confucian texts should provide a
sound foundation and substantial understanding for researchers studying care in East Asian society.
