Review

"There are so many issues raised in this brilliant book that it is difficult to render justice to them all." Journal of Chinese Studies "Confucianism is making a comeback. Cultural conservatives will rejoice. But so should political progressives. With his usual insight, balance, and historically informed normative theorizing, Stephen Angle shows that new interpretations of traditional Confucian values such as hierarchy, deference, and ritual can and should challenge oppressive social practices. This original book is both counter-intuitive and persuasive." Daniel A. Bell, Jiaotong University, Shanghai and Tsinghua University, Beijing"Stephen Angle is one of the most well-informed and actively engaged political philosophers seeking to bring the Confucian tradition into productive dialogue as a full and equal partner with the contemporary West in a mutually edifying endeavor he calls global philosophy. His command of the works of Chinese thinkers such as Mou Zongsan is most impressive and clearly displayed in this latest work." Philip J. Ivanhoe, City University of Hong Kong"Stephen Angle provides an accessible reconstruction of the political philosophy of Mou Zongsan, an important contemporary Confucian philosopher highly influential in the philosophical circles of Taiwan and Hong Kong.

  This book opens the door to contemporary developments of Confucianism in China and Taiwan." Jee
