PHIL11-106: The Way: Confucian Philosophy and The Path to a Good Life

Description

This subject provides students with the opportunity to study contemporary issues such as climate change, the rise of China, the Three Gorges Dam project, hierarchy, authority and gender equality. Recent speeches that have impacted upon society will be discussed, as well as traditional artworks and ceremonies. Films depicting a Confucian perspective will be studied, illustrating the most vital insights from this millennium-old, yet still young tradition. Looking for an authentic Confucian Way through everyday activities and questions, students will encounter Confucianism both as a journey to understanding and a model for guidance.
