The central doctrine of Confucianism is ren, which means goodness, benevolence, humanity, and kind heartedness. Related teachings include loyalty, respect and consideration, propriety, reciprocity, neighborliness, and love. The major work about Confucius is the Analects. The two major ancient Daoist texts are Laozi (also called Daodejing) and Zhuangzi; both are named after their purported authors. The texts and over 1,000 additional volumes of scripture comprise the Daoist canon, called Daozang. Important interpreters of Daoist teachings have been Wang Bi (3rd cent, CE), Guo Xiang (3rd - 4th cent. CE), and others including the Heavenly Masters sect (2nd cent. CE under Zhang Ling), and later Perfect Truth sect. Daoism has become better known in the West only since 1937.
