Description:

A few decades ago, Kang Youwei was mostly studied in departments of history. Recently more and more scholars of philosophy departments have begun to publish on Kang Youwei’s Confucianism or his New-Text Classicism. A natural question is: Why did it happen? This lecture introduces the existing interpretations of the phenomenon. It then indicates that the phenomenon reshapes the debate regarding the legitimacy of Chinese philosophy and unravels the peculiar interplays between Chinese philosophizing and Chinese political discourses.
