Ju-chia. Chinese name for what is known in W. languages as Confucianism. ‘Confucianism’ is also known as ju-chiao (chiao meaning those who belong to the same organization or social structure, e.g., a family, and who share common goals or interests; it is thus often translated as ‘religion’). Since chiao involves educating or instructing a child, it became associated with those who belong to the same tradition. The later name Kung-chiao (tradition of Confucius) is less common.
