    Showing how Confucian ethics and politics diverge, Loubna El Amine argues that Confucian political thought is not a direct application of Confucian moral philosophy. Instead, contrary to the conventional view that Confucian rule aims to instill virtue in all members of society, El Amine demonstrates that its main aim is to promote political order.   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 Price: $

    Since the very beginning, Confucianism has been troubled by a serious gap between its political ideals and the reality of societal circumstances. Contemporary Confucians must develop a viable method of governance that can retain the spirit of the Confucian ideal while tackling problems arising from nonideal modern situations. The best way to meet this challenge, Joseph Chan argues, is to adopt. This book examines Confucian political thought from a perspective that explores the intricate interplay between political ideal and reality. This perspective is not unique to the study of Confucianism but common to much of the political theorizing carried out under the name of “political philosophy.”.

    Confucianism in the United States dates back to accounts of missionaries who traveled to China during the early 19th century. Since the second half of the 20th century, it has had increased scholarly interest. Confucianism is often studied under the umbrella of Chinese philosophy, and American scholars of Confucianism generally teach in university philosophy or religion departments. After a quick search at Amazon, I’ve got the following list of books more or less explicitly devoted to Confucian political philosophy (I don’t include the edited volumes). Here I solicit your help to see whether I’ve missed some other books on Confucian political philosophy published in English since, say, the year of

Confucianism, the way of life propagated by Confucius in the 6th–5th century bce and followed by the Chinese people for more than two millennia.

It originates from the Chinese thinker Confucius or Kongzi (. BCE), whose impact on China and Chinese philosophy is, fair to say, comparable to that of Socrates in the Western world (Riegel ).

The book represents an attempt to explore Confucianism from a western perspective. It is unique, in the sense that it uses the norms and terminology of western normative philosophy to reconstruct and modernize Confucianism, and simultaneously draws Confucian resources to enrich and revise the western tradition of liberal democracy.
