Anne Cheng: Confucian Conceptions of Chinese Universality

The Chiang Ching-kuo International Sinological Center invites to its Open sinological seminar:

Professor Anne Cheng, College de France, a leading French sinologist: „Confucian conceptions of Chinese universality”

From the abstract: The advent of the universality of human rights is generally seen as a pure product of the Enlightenment in Europe, which itself represented the “triumph of Reason”; whereas Chinese universality is inseparable from a certain idea of civilization, with a centre shining upon surrounding regions, and upon which the reality of imperial power superimposed itself.
