Growing Moral

A Confucian Guide to Life

Stephen C. Angle

Guides to the Good Life Series

  • Focuses on the practices, recommendations, and values that are central to the Confucian vision of living a good life, and on the reasoning that motivates this way of living
  • Enlivened with contemporary examples that demonstrate a progressive, synthetic vision of Confucianism as extremely relevant to living in our world today
  • Draws on the most influential five thinkers from the Confucian tradition, and presents Confucianism as offering a relatively unified vision of how to live a good life in the modern world
  • Remains accessible to the intelligent and curious reader who has no background in Confucianism or East Asian philosophy
  • Comprises short chapters which do not need to be read straight-through
