Video: Dialogue b/w J.C. Kapur and Tu Weiming

Jagdish Chandra Kapur and Tu Weiming met on 11 July, 2010 to talk about challenges of the modern world and dialogue among civilizations. The meeting took place in a hotel room where Mr. Kapur was staying. As shown in the video recording of this meeting, Mr. Kapur, despite his 90+ years of age, was vibrant, sharp, and full of ideas.

Sadly, Jagdish Chandra Kapur passed away on Nov. 19, 2010. Prof. Tu Weiming reflected on Mr. Kapur’s life: “He was a towering figure in reconfiguring the new world order, a major public intellectual in Asia, and a source of inspiration for us. I cherished his willingness to share his broad vision with me. I look forward to an opportunity to continue his seminal work on intercivilizational dialogue in Cultural China.”
