Item description for A Chinese Ethics for the New Century (Ch'ien Mu Lecture in History & Culture) by Donald J. Munro...
A link between evolutionary biology and Chinese ethics runs through the essays in this volume. Many advances, since the 1960s and 1970s, within the fields of biology, psychology, and neurology are presented. These findings advance our knowledge of how the mind functions paying special attention to social behavior. Munro focuses on the meaning of these developments, specifically for the study of Confucian ethics, and broadly for Chinese contributions to international discussion of moral topics.
