Contemporary Confucianism in Thought and Action (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016): Guy Alitto Contemporary Confucianism in Thought and Action (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016)

This volume focuses on contemporary Confucianism, and collects essays by famous sinologists such as Guy Alitto, John Makeham, Tse-ki Hon and others. The content is divided into three sections - addressing the "theory" and "practice" of contemporary Confucianism, as well as how the two relate to each other - to provide readers a more meaningful understanding of contemporary Confucianism and Chinese culture. In 1921, at the height of the New Culture Movement's iconoclastic attack on Confucius, Liang Shuming ( ) fatefully predicted that in fact the future world culture would be Confucian. Over the nine decades that followed, Liang's reputation and the fortunes of Confucianism in China rose and fell together. So, readers may be interested in the question whether it is possible that a reconstituted "Confucianism" might yet become China's spiritual mainstream and a major constituent of world culture.

Confucianism is the foundation of Chinese culture, just as Christianity is the foundation of Western culture. The father-son relationship is at the center of Confucian thinking and the ethical natural relationship is the model for other familial, social, and political relationships. The divine father-son relationship between God and Jesus is at the center of Christian consideration and likewise is the model of Christian familial, social, and political relationships. To date, scholarship has opined that the Confucian father-son relationship established on a consanguineous basis has no comparable aspects with the spiritual based Christian divine father-son relationship. The author provides a compelling argument, backed up by focused scriptural and religious readings, to overturn this longstanding perception. The particular appeal of this book is to offer a religious and cultural comparative study from this most cardinal and crucial relationship, through the study of Xunzi and Paul, two r

R5,399 Discovery Miles 53 990 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This volume presents both a historical and a systematic examination of the philosophy of classical Confucianism. Taking into account newly unearthed materials and the most recent scholarship, it features contributions by experts in the field, ranging from senior scholars to outstanding early career scholars. The book first presents the historical development of classical Confucianism, detailing its development amidst a fading ancient political theology and a rising wave of creative humanism. It examines the development of the philosophical ideas of Confucius as well as his disciples and his grandson Zisi, the Zisi-Mencius School, Mencius, and Xunzi. Together with this historical development, the book analyzes and critically assesses the philosophy in the Confucian Classics and other major works of these philosophers. The second part systematically examines such philosophical issues as feeling and emotion, the aesthetic appreciation of music, wisdom in poetry, moral psychology, virtue ethics, political thoughts, the relation with the Ultimate Reality, and the concept of harmony in Confucianism. The Philosophy of Classical Confucianism offers an unparalleled examination to the philosophers, basic texts and philosophical concepts and ideas of Classical Confucianism as well as the recently unearthed bamboo slips related to Classical Confucianism. It will prove itself a valuable reference to undergraduate and postgraduate university students and teachers in philosophy, Chinese history, History, Chinese language and Culture.

Research on Chinese religions is a fast expanding and vibrant field. This anthology gathers both classical pieces of scholarship and very recent articles that illustrate the various disciplinary approaches (history, sociology, anthropology, political sciences, arts and literature), theories and themes that are shaping the field today. Topics covered include the Three teachings (Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism) as well as so-called 'popular religion' throughout history, but the overall focus is on how scholars make sense of the variety of religious practices and beliefs to analyze the place of religion in Chinese societies.

The Analects, or Lunyu (literally "Selected Sayings"), also known as the Analects of Confucius, is the collection of sayings and ideas attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius and his contemporaries, traditionally believed to have been written by Confucius' followers. It is believed to have been written during the Warring States period (475 BC - 221 BC), and it achieved its final form during the mid-Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD). The Analects has been one of the most widely read and studied books in China for the last 2,000 years, and continues to have a substantial influence on Chinese and East Asian thought and values today. Confucius (551-479 BCE) was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn Period of Chinese history. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. His followers competed successfully with many other schools during the Hundred Schools of Thought era only to be suppressed in favor of the Legalists during the Qin Dynasty. Following the victory of Han over Chu after the collapse of Qin, Confucius's thoughts received official sanction and were further developed into a system known as Confucianism.

Next to the Kan-Ying P'ien it is read and studied and taught both in schools and at the home, and there is probably no family in China without it; but its contents are very little known in the. Western world, and we have only once met with references to it by Professor Douglas in his Confucianism and Taouism under the title of "Book of Secret Blessings."

A new generation of Confucian scholars is coming of age. China is reawakening to the power and importance of its own culture. This volume provides a unique view of the emerging Confucian vision for China and the world in the 21st century. Unlike the Neo-Confucians sojourning in North America who recast Confucianism in terms of modern Western values, this new generation of Chinese scholars takes the authentic roots of Confucian thought seriously. This collection of essays offers the first critical exploration in English of the emerging Confucian, non-liberal, non-social-democratic, moral and political vision for China s future. Inspired by the life and scholarship of Jiang Qing who has emerged as China's exemplar contemporary Confucian, this volume allows the English reader access to a moral and cultural vision that seeks to direct China s political power, social governance, and moral life. For those working in Chinese studies, this collection provides the first access in English to major debates in China concerning a Confucian reconceptualization of governance, a critical Confucian assessment of feminism, Confucianism functioning again as a religion, and the possibility of a moral vision that can fill the cultural vacuum created by the collapse of Marxism.

Christianity and Confucianism - Culture, Faith and Politics (Hardcover): Christopher Hancock Christianity and Confucianism - Culture, Faith and Politics (Hardcover)
Christopher Hancock
R4,345 Discovery Miles 43 450 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Christianity and Confucianism: Culture, Faith and Politics, sets comparative textual analysis against the backcloth of 2000 years of cultural, political, and religious interaction between China and the West. As the world responds to China's rise and China positions herself for global engagement, this major new study reawakens and revises an ancient conversation. As a generous introduction to biblical Christianity and the Confucian Classics, Christianity and Confucianism tells a remarkable story of mutual formation and cultural indebtedness. East and West are shown to have shaped the mind, heart, culture, philosophy and politics of the other - and far more, perhaps, than either knows or would want to admit. Christopher Hancock has provided a rich and stimulating resource for scholars and students, diplomats and social scientists, devotees of culture and those who pursue wisdom and peace today.

1936. Confucius Said It First is the result of the author's conversation with the former president of a men's club near Boston. Dr. Hsieh was talking to the ex-president about great teachers and in the course of the conversation had dwelt at length on Confucius. Yes, said the Boston suburbanite, Confucius was indeed a great master. He was Italian was he not? Following this, Hsieh hurried to his home and dug out his articles on the sayings of Confucius, which were published in Colliers and reprinted in the Reader's Digest. He took them to the best Boston publishers and had them republished as this volume. It is a wonderful little book that you can slip into your pocket and, in subways, taxis, arm chairs and bed, discover that Confucius wasn't Italian and that he said, first, many of the words of wisdom that are still most honorable guide posts to peaceful and happy living. Contents: Confucius Said It First; Confucius Holds Mirror to Life; Sayings of Confucius; and Chinese Proverbs.
