View: China now attracts global attention in direct proportion to its increasing economic and geopolitical power. But for millennia, the philosophy which has shaped the soul of China is not modern Communism, or even new forms of capitalism, but rather Confucianism. And one of the most striking phenomena relating to China’s ascendancy on the world stage is a burgeoning interest, throughout Asia and beyond, in the humanistic culture and values that underlie Chinese politics and finance: particularly the thought of Confucius passed on in the Analects. In this stimulating conversation, two leading thinkers from the Confucian and Buddhist traditions discuss the timely relevance of a rejuvenated Confucian ethics to some of the most urgent issues in the modern world: Sino/Japanese/US relations; the transformation of society through education and dialogue; and the role of world religions in promoting human flourishing. Exploring correspondences between the Confucian and Buddhist world-views, the interlocutors commit themselves to a view of spirituality and religion that, without blurring cultural difference, is focused above all on the “”universal heart””: on harmony between people and nature that leads to peace and to a hopeful future for all humanity.

December 2010, Governance of Life in Chinese Moral Experience–The quest for an adequate life

December 2010, Governance of Life in Chinese Moral Experience—The quest for an adequate life

CO-Author: ZHANG Yuehong(张跃宏), KAI Bowen(凯博文), TU Weiming
Press:Routlege Taylor & Francis Group

View: China has experienced a tremendous turn-around over the past three decades from the ethos of sacrificing life to the emergent appeal for valuing life. This book takes an interdisciplinary look at China during these decades of transformation through the defining theme of governance of life. With an emphasis on how to achieve an adequate life, the contributors integrate a whole range of life-related domains including: the death of Sun Zhigang, the peril caused by rising tobacco consumption, the emerging suicide intervention, the turning points in the fight against AIDS, the intensely evolving birth policy, the emerging biological citizenship, and so on. In doing so, they explore how biological life has been governed differently to enhance the wellbeing of the population instead of promoting ideological goals. This change, dubbed “the deepening in governmentality,” is one of the most important driving forces for China’s rise, and will have huge bearings on how the Chinese will achieve an adequate life in the 21st century. This book presents works by a number of internationally known scholars and will be of interest to students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, political science, history, Chinese philosophy, law, and public health.

The 1st Sinyi Lecture was held on Dec. 8, 2016

Hosted by the Sinyi Center for Culture Studies at the Institute for Advanced Humanistic Studies (IAHS) and by the World Ethics Institute Beijing (WEIB) at Peking University, the 1st Sinyi Lecture took place on December 8, 2016. Sinyi Lecture provides a platform for advanced exchanges and dialogues around the theme of the modern destiny, mission, and transformation of the Confucian tradition in the business context. It invites distinguished scholars and business leaders to discuss topics relevant to business practices, with the hope to span across disciplinary boundaries, to close the gap between theory and practice, and to uncover, enrich, and apply traditional Confucian resources in spirituality, morality, ethics, and social institutions to business. The lecture aims at advocating and broadening the value of ren (human-heartedness or humanity), and promoting exploration and construction of a new business ethics under the perspective of spiritual humanism.

Prof. Sun Chen, former President of National Taiwan University and a renowned scholar of economics, was invited to be the speaker of the first Sinyi Lecture. After his speech, Director of IAHS at Peking University Prof. Tu Weiming and Board Chairman of Sinyi Realty Mr. Chou Chünchi joined Prof. Sun for a dialogue on Business Ethics and the Confucian Tradition. Executive Vice-director of IAHS Prof. Ni Peimin presided over the lecture, and Vice President of PKU Prof. Wu Zhipan attended the lecture and delivered welcome remarks on the arrival of Prof. Sun Chen and Mr. Chou Chünchi with his delegation from Taiwan. Eminent scholar Prof. Liu Mengxi was also present at the event as an invited guest.

The first part of the event was Prof. Sun Chen’s keynote speech on the topic of Modern Economic Commission of Confucian Ethics. He mentioned in the lecture that Confucianism was formed 2,000 years ago during the time when economy was in stagnation and people’s welfare came from the society’s being harmonious and peaceful. However, modern western thoughts generated in an era of economic development about 200 years ago believed that, in addition to social harmony and peace, people’s welfares must come from economic growth and the increase of both people’s income and wealth. There is, however, no conflict between the core ideas of these two sets of thoughts.

Prof. Sun explained that Adam Smith once said, being concerned about one’s self-interest will lead to the virtue of prudence, and caring for other’s benefits will generate the virtue of justice and benevolence. In terms of ethical principles which modern enterprises should adhere to, Prof. Sun suggested that business ethics should contain four principles: First, ren (humanity), which means loving people. Enterprises need to go beyond their own interests and take the survival and development of the human race into consideration. Second, yi (justice or appropriateness), which aims at providing fare treatment of the interests of all the relevant parties, such as stockholders, managers, and customers. Third, cheng (sincerity), which means that enterprises must neither deceive themselves nor deceive others, and never do anything against their own conscience. Fourth, xin (trustworthiness), i.e. enterprises should maintain good reputation and being trustworthy.

The second part of the event was a dialogue on Business Ethics and the Confucian tradition participated by Prof. Sun, Prof. Tu and Mr. Chou. Prof. Tu pointed out that since 2013, the communities of Cultural China which includes mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Macao and even the entire East Asia have reached a consensus that the increase of GDP could not be the only measure for the development of China and its interaction with the world. Besides the economic progress, we need to put more emphasis on considerations about politics, social and culture development, and environmental protection.

Prof. Tu emphasized that comprehensive development of a human being should include the following dimensions – the dimensions of one’s relationship to oneself, of human relationships, of the relation between human and the natural world, and of the relationship between humans and the way of heaven. There is a choice in dealing with values such as freedom, rationality, rights, rule of law, and various dignities. That means between yi (justice) and li (profit), yi must take priority. Without justice, the pursuit of profit will become indulgence. In emphasizing rights, we must emphasize responsibility; when talking about rule of law, we must emphasize ritual propriety; when talking about human dignity, we must emphasize social harmony; when talking about freedom, we must emphasize social responsibility. He indicated that broadening these values from within, especially in the realm of businesses, may create an opportunity for the turn of human civilizations.

Mr. Chou Chünchi, board chairman of Taiwan Sinyi Realty, also shared his experience of implementing business ethics. Chou said that in making management decisions, most enterprises would consider how to increase profits for the company and how to promote maximum benefits for their stockholders. However, about five or six years ago, Sinyi Realty pioneered in the business circle in setting up a position called “ethics manager,” which is responsible for developing education programs in the business and to promote the concept of justice. Since then, the most significant and the highest decision-making body of the enterprise became the Ethical Management Committee of the business.

“We set for ourselves five major parties that we must be responsible to: our customers, colleagues, stockholders, the public, and the natural environment,” Chou said. “Every significant proposal must be examined through the perspective of these five major parties. Besides the Ethics Manager, staffs from other departments must also review the proposals. A proposal may help the company to earn money and add values for our customers, yet if it may be harmful to the environment or may cause a disturbance to the community, we would examine it and, if it turns out that the proposal is not in accord with the ethical standard, we will withdraw it and propose a new one.”

Chou believed that there are three important pillars in business management: the first is being people–oriented; the second is to put yi (justice or appropriateness) before li (profit); and the third is vertical thinking, meaning to understand the demand and plan of the government. Chou pointed out that running business in this way will not reduce the profit of an enterprise. In fact since the establishment of his company, its capital has increased 20,000 times.

After the dialogue Prof. Sun, Prof. Tu and Mr. Chou opened the floor and responded to the questions from the audience. Then Prof. Tu presented gifts to Prof. Sun and Mr. Chou on behalf of IAHS, which are two pieces of Chinese calligraphy written by Prof. Ni Peimin (Executive Vice-director of IAHS). The event ended with warm applause from the audience.

Nov. 26th to Nov. 28th, 2016, The Workshop “Confucianism in the Age of Enlightenment” was held at Peking University





The Institute of Advanced Humanistic Studies (IAHS) at Peking University and its affiliated World Ethics Institute Beijing (WEIB) have held a high profile international workshop on the topic of “Confucianism in the Age of Enlightenment,” from Nov.26th to Nov.28th, 2016, at Peking University. Twenty-eight distinguished scholars from different countries, including Germany, France, United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, and different institutions in China, gathered together and had deep discussions about how classics of Confucianism were translated into European languages and how they were introduced, interpreted, and received by the European Enlightenment thinkers.

The conference began with an opening address by Professor Tu Weiming, the Director of the IAHS. He called for in-depth dialogues in a broad context of humanistic perspective and an understanding of the inter-dependence between the self, community, nature, and the Way of heaven. Professor Meng Hua of the Institute of Comparative Literature and Comparative Cultures at Peking University gave a key speech which pointed out that the international workshop was designed to be inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural, and cross generations.

Throughout the two and half days workshop, participants presented rich historical materials and their insightful analysis. Among these, renowned Leibniz expert Professor Li Wenchao of the University of Hannover (Germany) presented four major models of interpretation of Confucius and his thoughts among the early Enlightenment thinkers, Leibniz, Thomasius, Walff, and Bilfinger. Professor Isabelle Landry-DERON from France examined the changing images of Confucius in the biographies and paintings of the Chinese master during the 17th century Europe. Professor Ronnie P. Hsia from the U.S. spoke about how Matteo Ricci’s interpretation of Confucianism was challenged by Michele Ruggieri. Professor Luo Ying from Beijing Foreign Studies University took the translation of the book of Zhongyong as an example to show a glimpse of how Jesuit missionaries interpreted Confucian classics. Professor Thierry Meynard of Zhongshan University gave a detailed report on how Jesuit missionary François Noël functioned as a turning point in the 17-18 century reception of Confucianism in Europe, who gave Song-Ming neo-Confucians a positive account. Professor Meng Hua discussed the detailed notes on the margins of a copy of the book of Mencius taken by French writer Voltaire, who claimed himself a “disciple of Confucius.” Professor Li Shengwen from Canada, Han Qi from Chinese Academy of Sciences, Luo Weidong of Zhejiang University, Han Ling of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, Gao Yi of Peking University, and Japanese scholar Igawa Yoshitsugu all gave informative and thought inspiring talks at the workshop.

The last key speech by Professor Zhang Xiping of Beijing Foreign Studies University called for reflections on all the historical facts presented by the other participants of the workshop and for overcoming the nihilistic post-modern attitude toward the history. His speech was a perfect transition to the roundtable discussion chaired by Professor Tu Weiming during the final morning session. The roundtable discussants were Professor Roger T. Ames, Chen Pingyuan, Liu Shuseng, Ni Peimin of Peking University, and Professor Yang Huilin of Renmin University. The conversation led to a clearer understanding of the role and significance of Confucianism in the progression of world civilizations and suggested topics for further exploration. Professor Meng Hua gave the closing speech and declared that the workshop was a big success

On April 8th, 2016 Professor Tu gave a lecture at Xi’an Jiaotong University

In the evening of April 8th, Prof. Tu Weiming delivered a wonderful lecture for JT University’steachers and students in Room 101,Science Museum of Xi’an JT University, which is themed as “Confucian’s benevolence as the universal value”.

Before the meeting, professor Tu accepted the Publicity Department’s interview. For the 120 years’ anniversary of the Xi’an Jiaotong University, Professor Tu blessed the university could make further progress, and hope it can strive to build a comprehensive first-class university. Hence, he wishes the young students at Jiangtong University could have broad visions, and actively expand their own views, and to be creative scientists.

The lecture was opened on time,and all seats are occupied. Gong Hui(deputy secretary of the Party Committee) on behalf of the school gave an speech. Zhang Maiceng (Secretary of the Party Committee) awarded the certificates and wore the school badge for Professor Tu by person. Ma Xiaobin (the party secretary of Humanities Department), Yang Lin( Associate Dean of Humanities Department) and also other 400 representatives students and teachers presented in the seminar. This lecture was emceed by Bian Yanjie (President of Humanities Department, Xi’an Jiaotong University).  

Professor Tu Weiming firstly congratulated to Xi’an JT University on its 120 years’ anniversary, and especially mentioned that when everyone is focusing on the development of natural science, Jiaotong University still pay its attention to the in- heritage of Chinese traditional culture. He personally is very grateful. 

He also mentioned that the twenty-fourth World Congress of Philosophy will be held  in Beijing, and the theme is “learning to be human”,which also can be interpreted as , “learning to be an adult.”He believes that the emphasis on human is responding to pursuing an ultimate concern in the axial period; and paying attention to people is concerned with the problem of people’s survival, and it is the world’s problem, so he hope we can be able to get out of from the secular humanism.

In terms with “to be a person”, professor Tu said “If reasoning without sympathy, it will become scheme; without justice, it will become selfish; if power without responsibility, it will become an excuse of plundering. If a person has sympathy without reasoning, it will become spoiled. If we have sense of justice, but without  freedom, it is compulsion. If a person with politeness and benevolence, but without law, the market’s economy cannot develop. If a society gets harmony, but no dignity, it will lead to society’s homogenization. If so, “encouraging blossoming and contending of all” cannot appear.

Professor Tu mentioned that the Confucianism is open, changing, and evolutive. Respecting others and respecting self can be integrated, and doing many good deeds and making many friends also can coexist.Confucianism does not break the relationship with the civilizations appearing before, on the contrary, the Confucianism  is inheriting aging civilization from Dynasties of Xia-Shang-Zhou. He stressed the importance of benevolence by using examples of Yan Hui’s ” Does not violate the benevolence within three months”. At the same time, from the perspective of “people can not hony”, he illustrated the importance of persistence and dedication.

He put forward, courtesy with benevolence is more in line with the courtesy; courtesy without benevolence will become formalism.The bravery without benevolence is brute courage, and the wisdom without benevolence is petty shrewdness .On the contrary, once there is benevolence, there will be bravery, wisdom, and faith. Professor Tu Weiming, especially pointed out that persons exist in the world has his value, and the responsibility is positively proportional to the existence.

After the report, professor Tu Weiming answered students’ questions and finally said: “I respect each students’ rights to raise questions , so as for the remaining problems, I will think them after the meeting”. Words is short but powerful, which shows a master’s mind.

On Nov. 11 to Nov. 12, 2015, ‘Discourse on Confucian Entrepreneurs in 2015’ was held in Beijing University

‘Discourse on Confucian Entrepreneurs in 2015: “Conscience.Entrepreneurs.Value Remodeling” forum was held from Nov. 11 to Nov. 12 in Yingjie Exchange Center at Peking University. The forum was jointly organized by World Ethics Center of Peking University, Institute of Advanced Humanities Studies and the Cheung Kong School of Business.

It is the third time to held the forum, following the discussion of “Humanistic Spirit and Business Ethics in the Era of Globalization in 2013”, and discussion of “Confucian paradigm and wealth in 2014”. This time, the “Discourse on Confucian Entrepreneurs in 2015” is themed as “Conscience and Value remodeling” , and try to face the current complex value conflicts and reshape the the Chinese values, and think of how to establish the root of value remodeling based on the conscience and and nous.

After fully understanding of the “Creative destruction” from the market economy’s power, we hope that entrepreneurs can share their understandings of the significance and wealth, the relationship between economy and ethics, and discuss how entrepreneurs can use intuitive knowledge participate in the process of the value-remodeling in society so as to construct a harmonized and prosperous human community in the future. Professor Tu weiming (Dean, Institute of advanced human studies, Peking University) pointed out that the problem of value remodeling as a universal problem, the traditional human-centered thought is difficult to continue now.

When we enjoy the benefit brought by modernization, we have to face all kinds of difficulties because of instrumental rationality and conquered nature. In the background of diversification, we need to think about how to coordinate the ideology of advocating individual with the concept of “community with shared life “, not only for China, but also it is a way that the world can be universally accepted by all mankind. “Conscience and reason” is a kind of new spirit,and it is rooted into Chinese tradition, which stressed the historic significance, sense of awe and transcendence of mankind. In the course of the Chinese nation’s great rejuvenation, it is necessary to attach its importance to the development.

Xiang Bing (The dean of Cheung Kong School of Business), Professor Lesinger (Academician of European Academy of Sciences and Humanities and Founder of the Global Alliance), delivered keynote speeches respectively, from the perspectives of Chinese enterprises’ growth and sustainable developments. After the keynote speeches, emceed by Qin Shuo(Director of the National Center for Business and Culture, former editor-in-chief of First Financial Daily), Professor Tu Weiming, Mr. Feng Lun (Chairman of the Cmi Holdings Ltd), Zhang Zhifeng (Chairman of the China Committee of the Asia Fashion Federation and founder of the Northeast Tiger brand Tiger & ne), and Zhu Rui (Vice President of Cheung Kong School of Business) had a brilliant conversation.

At the noon of Nov.11th, the forum held three summit dialogues, and the themes were: “as the the Value of the Cornerstone of the Conscience of the Nous”, “ Justice& Benefit &Value Remodeling Process” , and “Entrepreneurs’ Identity”. On Nov. 12th, around these themes, four round-table discussions on dialogues between entrepreneurs and scholars were going on. Through reviewing the process of reconstruction of modern social value and thinking of conscience, with those entrepreneurs’ personal experiences, we expect to explore more connotations in Chinese culture and spiritual traditions, so to enrich our resources at the level of morality, ethics, system etc., and also to cope with the common problems faced by mankind in the era of globalization.
