Li in the Analects: Training in Moral Competence and the Question of Flexibility Lai, Karyn Lynne en_US 2021-11-25T12:58:36Z 2021-11-25T12:58:36Z 2006 en_US
dc.description.abstract It is proposed here that the Confucian li, norms of appropriate behavior, be understood as part of the dynamic process of moral self-cultivation. Within this framework li are multidimensional, as they have different functions at different stages in the cultivation process. This novel interpretation refocuses the issue regarding the flexibility of li, a topic that is still being debated by scholars. The significance of this proposal is not restricted to a new understanding of li. Key features of the various stages of moral development in Confucian thought are also articulated. This account presents the picture of a Confucian paradigmatic person as critically self-aware and ethically sensitive. en_US
