Hsieh Liang-Tso and the Analects of Confucius: Humane Learning as a Religious Quest

Oup Usa (2005)

Abstract

This book presents a focused analysis of the core value of Confucian thought, namely the jen, through an investigation of Hsieh Liang-tso's analysis of the Analects of Confucius. Selover argues that Hsieh's handling of key issues in interpreting and applying the Confucian Analects, his experiental reasoning as well as his deference to scriptural classics and earlier tradition, bear important similarities to the practice of theology in Western religious traditions. The volume also contains a translation of Hsieh's commentary on the Analects, and a foreword by the renowned scholar of Confucianism, Tu Wei-ming.
