This workshop considers classical Chinese and Japanese ethics and their application to society, and in relation to contemporary questions in moral philosophy. Panellists discuss topics such as the implications of Chinese and Japanese philosophy on the theory of modernization; the historical development of filial piety (孝) in Japan and its prospects for awakening a form of modernity that emphasizes the individual; the way in which the Confucian philosophy of Mencius (孟⼦) can provide resources for thinking through the ethics of responsibility; and how the classical Chinese philosopher Mozi (墨⼦) can help us to overcome a tension between Divine Command Theory and the consequentialism that troubles the moral philosophy of Western scholars such as George Berkeley.
