Confucian Philosophy of Family Feeling as Resource for a New Geopolitical Orde

January 26, 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Mānoa Campus, webinar Add to Calendar

The Center for Chinese Studies kicks off its Spring 2022 Seminar series with an Alumnus Voice webinar by Professor Emeritus of Philosophy Roger Ames. Professor Ames is currently the Humanities Chair Professor at Peking University and Academic Director of the Peking University Berggruen Research Center. While at UHM, Dr. Ames also served as Director for the Center for Chinese Studies from 1991 to 2000 and played a key role in making the university the hub for non-Western and comparative philosophy and intellectual exchange in the US. At his webinar, Professor Ames will discuss the seismic sea change in the geopolitical order of the world that has accelerated over the first two decades of the 21st century. In looking to Confucian philosophy as a possible resource for a new geopolitical order, he begins by joining Michael Walzer in common cause in his search for a universal minimalist morality that can provide a basis for a limited but important solidarity and for mutual critique among the world’s peoples and cultures.
