Can Confucius Save the World?
May 6 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The teachings of Confucius have made a comeback in China, and, according to Daniel Bell, it has the potential to be a beneficial force in the rest of the world. Bell’s writing on what he describes as China’s meritocracy has stirred heated debate among academic circles. Drawing on a new book Just Hierarchy: Why Social Hierarchies Matter in China and the World, Bell and co-author Wang Pei argue that Confucius-inspired hierarchies can help deal with the ongoing health crisis and other modern global challenges.
