"There are so many issues raised in this brilliant book that itis difficult to render justice to them all."
Journal of Chinese Studies
"Confucianism is making a comeback. Cultural conservatives willrejoice. But so should political progressives. With his usualinsight, balance, and historically informed normative theorizing,Stephen Angle shows that new interpretations of traditionalConfucian values such as hierarchy, deference, and ritual can andshould challenge oppressive social practices. This original book isboth counter-intuitive and persuasive."
Daniel A. Bell, Jiaotong University, Shanghai and TsinghuaUniversity, Beijing
"Stephen Angle is one of the most well-informed and activelyengaged political philosophers seeking to bring the Confuciantradition into productive dialogue as a full and equal partner withthe contemporary West in a mutually edifying endeavor he callsglobal philosophy. His command of the works of Chinese thinkerssuch as Mou Zongsan is most impressive and clearly displayed inthis latest work."
Philip J. Ivanhoe, City University of Hong Kong
"Stephen Angle provides an accessible reconstruction of thepolitical philosophy of Mou Zongsan, an important contemporaryConfucian philosopher highly influential in the philosophicalcircles of Taiwan and Hong Kong. This book opens the door tocontemporary developments of Confucianism in China andTaiwan."
