Spring-Autumn - The Warring States period was a period of dramatic political-social transformation. There was a chaotic society with an incessant war in which ethics was decadent as well as morality, social order and ethical values were despised. That social reality had raised an urgent issue that required the solutions which were how to unify the country on one unit as well as to end the conflict in order to “manage a family, rule a nation, and conquer the world”. In this context, many ideological ideas were emerged in turn with the desires to transform the contemporary social reality which was chaotic into being ruled. It can be said that the idea of Confucius's ruling a nation was one of the outstanding ideas of this period. Within the scope of the article, the author focuses on analyzing Confucius's ideas of ruling the nation in order to contribute to deepening the ideas of ruling a nation in particular and the philosophical system of Confucius in general.
