Confucius and China in the Modern Age

Edited by: Lin Ganquan

This book draws together the contrasting strands on the advancement and impact of Confucianism within modern day China. It examines the events from the 20th and 21st centuries to help unravel the reasons why Confucius belief endured within a rapidly modernizing China. Kong Fu-Tzu and Confucianism have undergone dramatic ups and downs during the 20th century in China, and the ideological/political struggles between the groups who worship Confucius and the 'anti-Confucius' groups have existed for half a century. Following the Cultural Revolution, the study of Kong Fu-Tzu and Confucianism has progressed further. The book sorts out Kong Fu-Tzu and Confucianism's history in the last century and analyzes important topics and issues. *** Librarians: ebook available (Series: Philosophy in Modern China) [Subject: History, Asian Studies, Chinese Studies, Confucianism, Philosophy]
