Talk on Confucianism

USU Philosophy Club lecture

“VIRTUE, RITUAL, AND EARLY CONFUCIAN
PHILOSOPHY”

This talk will explore the ways that ideas from Confucianism can be used to supplement contemporary virtue ethics. The central idea is that Confucian ideas about ritual point toward a way that virtue ethicists can and should incorporate rules for action into their views.
