    Information

    Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

    “From humble beginnings within a small circle of people, Confucianism has grown to be closely associated with virtually every aspect of the countries that have practiced it, whether political, cultural, or societal.” (Taylor, Rodney L. 2004. Confucianism. Philadelphia: Chelsea House Publishers: 3). Confucianism has played a key role in East Asian religious history for more than two thousand years. This introductory course focuses specifically on the main doctrinal tenets of Confucianism. Special emphasis is given to the classical teachings of Confucius, Mencius, and Xunzi, as well as the Neo-Confucian renaissance. Regional manifestations outwith China (i.e Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, and the global diaspora) will also be discussed.
    Students will become familiar with a) the crucial stages in the development and b) the major teachings of Confucianism in East Asia. They will be able to critically discuss the main features of classical Confucianism, Neo-Confucianism, and contemporary Confucianism.
