Chapter 8 of the book "Three-Dimensional Ethics: Implementing Workplace Values" is presented. It seeks to present an overview of Confucian ethics in relation to business dynamics and the manner in which they affect trading relations between East and West. Confucian philosophy integrates the public and private realm into consideration of the possible humane realm while Western countries promote individualism. The principle of face also plays an important role in Chinese business dynamics.
