Three philosophies, like the angles of a triangle
Confucianism, Taoism and Buddhism can be represented as the angles of a triangle that is in their substantial differences there is however a reciprocal relationship that turns out to be indissoluble
However, this relationship is difficult to put pen to paper in a precise and accurate way: there will always be a smoky and undetermined space. But if we still want to try to “give a label” to each of the three Churches, we can define them like this:
Confucianism is based on morality, Buddhism on idolatry and Taoism on superstition. The first is the worship of man, the second is the worship of the image and the third is the worship of spirits.
Considered in their relations with philosophy, the three the systems are based on ethical, physical and metaphysical respectively.
At present, China officially recognizes five religions which are managed centrally: Buddhism, Taoism, Protestantism, Catholicism and Islam.
Catholicism and Islam are observed by a small percentage of the population if we compare them with the system of traditional religions.
To be more precise, more than doctrines, the three most observed religions represent an insoeme of beliefs that enjoy freedom
