Mozi or Mo-tzu (墨子, Lat. as Micius, Pinyin Mozu,, original name Mo Ti, also spelled Motze, Motse, or Micius), (ca. 470 B.C.E. –ca. 390 B.C.E.), was a philosopher who lived in China and, together with Confucius, is considered one of the two great moral teachers during the Hundred Schools of Thought period (early Warring States Period). Mozi rejected Confucianism, which emphasized the correct performance of ritual social roles, and sought an objective moral standard which could be applied equally to all members of society. His ethical system emphasized the greatest good for the greatest number. His doctrine of bo-ai (universal love) maintained that one should love all people equally and rejected the Confucian concept that one should show special love and respect to parents and family.
Mozi founded the school of Mohism and argued strongly against Confucianism and Taoism. During the Warring States Period, Mohism was actively developed and practiced in many states, but fell out of favor when the legalist Qin Dynasty came to power. During that period, many Mohist classics were ruined when Qin Shihuang carried out the burning of books and burying of scholars. The importance of Mohism further declined when Confucianism became the dominant school of thought during the Han Dynasty, disappearing by the middle of the Western Han Dynasty.
Most historians believe that Mozi, born around 470 B.C.E. was a member of the lower artisan class who managed to climb his way to an official post. He was a master engineer and craftsman, designing everything from mechanical birds to wheeled, mobile "cloud ladders" used to besiege city walls. Though he did not hold a high official position, Mozi was sought out by various rulers as an expert on fortification, and attracted a large following during his lifetime which rivaled that of Confucius. His followers, mostly technicians and craftspeople, were organized in a disciplined order that studied both Mozi's philosophical and technical writings.
