EALC 142. Ethics in Chinese Philosophy. 3 Hours AE51 / H.

How can ethical codes help us lead a better life? What principles of government will ensure an ordered and harmonious society? What responsibilities do we have to others and to the natural world? Thinkers in early China asked these questions and came to a variety of different conclusions, ranging from a goal of spontaneous harmony, to a rigid law-and-order ethic. Their ideas are still relevant today and in this course we will both survey these different ethical perspectives and also apply them to contemporary social, political, and environmental issues. LEC.
