Understanding Confucian Ethics: Reflections on Moral Development Lai, Karyn Lynne en_US 2021-11-25T12:50:33Z 2021-11-25T12:50:33Z 2007 en_US
dc.description.abstract The standard criticisms of Confucian ethics (from a western philosophical perspective) appear contradictory. On the one hand, Confucian ethics is deemed overly rule-bound: it is obsolete because it advocates adherence to ancient Chinese norms of proper conduct. On the other hand, Confucian ethics is perceived as situational ethics—done on the run—and not properly grounded in fundamental principles or norms. I give reasons for these disparate views of Confucian ethics. I also sketch an account of Confucian morality that focuses on moral development; in this account the place of normative ethics is nominal. en_US
