Confucian political philosophy has recently emerged as a vibrant area of thought both in China and around the globe. This book provides an accessible introduction to the main perspectives and topics being debated today, and shows why Progressive Confucianism is a particularly promising approach. Students of political theory or contemporary politics will learn that far from being confined to a museum, contemporary Confucianism is both responding to current challenges and offering insights from which we can all learn.

The Progressive Confucianism defended here takes key ideas of the twentieth-century Confucian philosopher Mou Zongsan (1909-1995) as its point of departure for exploring issues like political authority and legitimacy, the rule of law, human rights, civility, and social justice. The result is anti-authoritarian without abandoning the ideas of virtue and harmony; it preserves the key values Confucians find in ritual and hierarchy without giving in to oppression or domination. A central goal of the book is to present Progressive Confucianism in such a way as to make its insights manifest to non-Confucians, be they philosophers or simply citizens interested in the potential contributions of Chinese thinking to our emerging, shared world.

About the Author:

Stephen C. Angle is professor of philosophy at Wesleyan University.

Review:

"There are so many issues raised in this brilliant book that itis difficult to render justice to them all."
Journal of Chinese Studies

"Confucianism is making a comeback. Cultural conservatives willrejoice. But so should political progressives. With his usualinsight, balance, and historically informed normative theorizing,Stephen Angle shows that new interpretations of traditionalConfucian values such as hierarchy, deference, and ritual can andshould challenge oppressive social practices. This original book isboth counter-intuitive and persuasive."
Daniel A. Bell, Jiaotong University, Shanghai and TsinghuaUniversity, Beijing

"Stephen Angle is one of the most well-informed and activelyengaged political philosophers seeking to bring the Confuciantradition into productive dialogue as a full and equal partner withthe contemporary West in a mutually edifying endeavor he callsglobal philosophy. His command of the works of Chinese thinkerssuch as Mou Zongsan is most impressive and clearly displayed inthis latest work."
Philip J. Ivanhoe, City University of Hong Kong

"Stephen Angle provides an accessible reconstruction of thepolitical philosophy of Mou Zongsan, an important contemporaryConfucian philosopher highly influential in the philosophicalcircles of Taiwan and Hong Kong.  This book opens the door tocontemporary developments of Confucianism in China andTaiwan."
JeeLoo Liu, California State University, Fullerton
