Thorsten Pattberg thinks the shengren of East-Asia are largely overlooked.
Shengren translated in German as “Heiliger” (Wilhelm) and English (Legge) as “sage”; however, if cross-checked with a standard German-English/English-German dictionaries, a “Heiliger” was a “saint”, and a “sage” was a “Weiser”.
The diagram shows why there can never be an eternal winner, as each of the three aspects beats one but is beaten by another.
The shengren is the highest member in the East-Asian family-based value tradition, a sage that has the highest moral standards, called de, who applies the principles of ren, li, yi, zhi and xin (and 10 more), and connects between all the people as if they were, metaphorically speaking, his family.
