内容简介:

This talk puts in perspective how Confucianism, merely one of those ten prominent schools of thought, emerges and re-emerges as an orthodox ideology in the form of canonized Confucianism (the Former Han dynasty) and Neo-Confucianism (the Song dynasties). By historicizing the variants of the thought, this talk also examines the contents of the thought at different times, laying bare its moral, political, behavioral and psychological aspects, why such a thought can metamorphose into an ideology in different social milieus and how it shapes the mentality of the Chinese.
      The point this talk purports to make is that, as a competing set of robust ideas, Confucianism sui generis exists in parallel with other persuasions of thought in ancient time and more importantly, by opening itself up to, and learning from, other intellectual resources, it enriches itself greatly. But as an orthodox ideology, it has been manipulated by different ancient dynasties and more often than not, lost its independence and autonomy and accordingly its resilience in responding to the swiftly changing world, particularly so when China encounters modern challenges.
      How to revive and re-energize it and bring it to bear on China’s modernization? This talk invites all participants to discuss this issue constructively.
