Chinese traditional official ethics culture is an important part of traditional culture. The main ideas and concepts in traditional official ethics, such as “governance by virtue”, “loyalty to the emperor and patriotism”, “governance for the people”, “incorruptible and diligent governance”, and “self-cultivation” are also important references for the construction of modern Chinese civil servants' professional ethics. This paper aims to objectively analyze the main content of traditional official ethics and its historical limitations in a bid to explore the enlightenment of traditional official ethics construction to the development of modern civil servant professional ethics.
