Dong Zhongshu was a Han Dynasty Chinese philosopher, politician, and writer. He is traditionally associated with the promotion of Confucianism as the official ideology of the Chinese imperial state. He apparently favored heaven worship over the tradition of cults celebrating the five elements.[1] Ultimately banished to the Chancellery of Weifang by his adversary Gongsun Hong, Gongsun effectively promoted Dong's partial retirement from political life, and his teachings were transmitted from there.[2] However, he apparently enjoyed great influence in the court in last decades of his life leading up to that.[3]
