Reclaiming a Sense of Common Humanity: An Ethical Vision of Classical Confucianism for Today's World

This talk will demonstrate how the moral sentiment of a common humanity should and can be reclaimed, or in the Confucian term, cultivated through engaging with thought of Meng Zi (Mencius, c. 372-289 BCE), a founder of Confucianism, and traditional Chinese Confucian universalistic medical ethics. Hosted by Wenqing Zhao, assistant professor of philosphy, with guest speaker Jing-Bao Nie (Professor at Otago University in New Zealand).
