Where Men Can Become Better Gentlemen


Where does the concept of being a gentleman originate from? Here we seek to define what a gentleman is and look at the history of how this definition has arisen. Across the last three centuries, civilizations have come and gone and cultures have evolved to bring about our understanding of a gentleman. You may be surprised to find, how despite this history, mans nature has changed very little; and how the neglect of our knowledge and understanding from the past retards our (and civilization's) personal building and development for the future.

We wholeheartedly invite you on this journey into the past to see what we can potentially learn for our future.


Definition of a Gentleman.

Ancient China

Junzi, The Chinese Gentleman - How Confucius took this term and used it to teach people to be more of a gentleman.

Ancient Greece

Greek Ethics - Socrates, Plato and Aristotle: the founding fathers of Western philosophy.

Nichomachaen Ethics - A book by Aristotle outlining a character list of virtues (which we believe a gentleman should seek to follow in their lives).
