XIE Xialing, Professor of Sociology, Fudan University of China
Confucianism is a uniquely Chinese ethical and philosophical system tracing its origins to the teachings of Chinese philosopher Confucius (551-479 BC) and his followers. It has exerted tremendous influence on the Chinese society and politics over the millennium. In recent decades, Confucianism has experienced a revival in the Mainland China after it had been vilified during the Cultural Revolution (1966-76). How should one understand Confucianism and its contemporary revival? Is Confucianism a form of religion? Can Confucianism provide the ideological basis for the modernization of Chinese society. Professor Xie Xialing will give a talk in Chinese where he will explore answers to these questions.
