Compassion and Benevolence reveals the heart of early Buddhist and
classical Confucian ethics in a comparative way. It explores
compassion (karuna) and benevolence (jen) by analyzing their
mechanisms, their moral groundworks, their applications, and their
meta-ethical nature. Compassion and benevolence are taken as
self-transformative virtues on the way to becoming an enlightened
one and a sage. This exploration intends to reject the popular
theses: early Buddhism is only self-liberation-concerned
soteriology and classical Confucianism is only society-concerned
thought requiring self-effacement.
