confucianism Tang Junyi Chinese philosophy
Project description

In this research project the work of philosopher Tang Junyi will be studied as a representative (traditionlist) orientation in contemporary Chinese thought. By investigating his "Exictence and the horizons of the mind" we will analyze how Tang attempts to reinterpret and reaffirm the value of Confucianism for China and the global community in the face of modernity.
