Item description for Chinese Ethics in a Global Context: Moral Bases of Contemporary Societies (Sinica Leidensia) by Karl-Heinz Pohl...
How do Chinese and Western ethical traditions interact today? In this collection of articles, both Chinese and Western scholars examine the issue, one of fundamental importance for the mutual understanding between China and the West. The volume is the result of the second symposium that focused on a dialogue between China and the West on questions of ethics, in particular concerning their commensurability and a possible common ground. The first part of the book discusses general problems of ethics in a cross-cultural context, followed by articles on ethical bases of Chinese and Western societies respectively. Further topics range from moral traditions in the context of social transformation in China today, to developments in Western societies, politics, education and religion. The last part deals with controversial issues such as human rights versus human duties and medical ethics.
