At the same time, Confucius distanced himself from discovering the order of natural things, which caused him to be regarded as a representative humanist philosopher. This interpretation could be misleading in that it overlooks the natural aspect of Confucian philosophy. To that aspect, this article asserts that a moral practice in Confucianism has a natural charact…Read more

This is followed by formulating the criticism into two aspects, that Horkheimer and Adorno’s apor…Read more
