Introduction to Confucianism

Thursday September 29, 2022
6:00 PM until 7:00 PM


Thursday, September 29 at 6 PM

At its core, Confucianism describes a way for us to live and grow together in our world—a way characterized at its best by joy, beauty, and harmony. By drawing on the greats of the Confucian tradition as well as modern feminists, psychologists, and even Jimi Hendrix, Growing Moral explains what Confucianism is and makes a case that it is worth trying out today. Author Stephen C. Angle will chat about the book, share a few passages, and looks forward to your questions and comments.

Stephen C. Angle Bio:
Stephen C. Angle has studied Chinese philosophy and Confucianism for more than three decades and is the author of five books. He happened upon China as a freshman at Yale in the 1980s, immersed himself in the language, and went on to earn a PhD from the University of Michigan. Angle has taught at Wesleyan University since 1994, and reports that his favorite comment from students is that they find his classes among the most “relevant” they take—even when studying twelfth-century medieval Confucianism.
