    Self‐construction and identity: The Confucian self in relation to some western perceptions.Xinzhong Yao - 1996 - Asian Philosophy 6 (3):179 – 195.
    Abstract In contrast to the metaphysical, epistemological and psychological understandings of the self traditionally held and today still extensively considered in the West, the self in Confucianism is essentially an ethical concept, representing a holistic view of humanhood and a continuingly constructive process driven by self?cultivation and moral orientations. This paper first examines what is literally and philosophically meant by the self in these two traditions, then examines the contrasts or comparisons between the Confucian conception of the self and the (...)

    Embodied Mind and Embodied Knowing – Xin 心 and Zhi 知 in the Book of Mencius.Xinzhong Yao - 2023 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 50 (2):183-195.
    The heart-mind (xin 心) in Mencius is not merely a rational faculty but a complex that contains such physical, psychological, physiological and spiritual concretes as reason, sentiment, feeling, experience and belief knowing, the study of which in the contemporary world would involve a number of modern disciplines including epistemology, metaphysics, psychology, ethics and education. In the context of Mencius, the mind is already embodied at birth and continues to function as the integration of intellectual and practical, physical and spiritual, and (...)

    The Way of Harmony in the Four Books.Xinzhong Yao - 2013 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 40 (2):252-268.
    This article is to examine the way of harmony that is initiated in the Analects of Confucius, and further elaborated in the other three of the Four Books. It will argue that the Confucian harmony is a philosophy defining the relation between the self and the other and among the elements of the unity, that it is a way of living and behaving that leads to modesty and flexibility, and that it is a moral process starting from the self and (...)

    Philosophy of Learning in Wang Yangming and Francis Bacon.Xinzhong Yao - 2013 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 40 (3-4):417-435.
    This article is a comparative study of the philosophical views on learning and learning methods elaborated by Wang Yangming and Francis Bacon. It argues that as different criteria for the advancement of learning Bacon's empirical learning and Wang's “learning of the heart-mind” represent two different philosophical orientations, and are responsible, at least partially, for laying down the basis for the parting ways of China and Europe at the dawn of the modern era. It concludes that an appreciation of the mutual (...)

    The confucian self and experiential spirituality.Xinzhong Yao - 2008 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 7 (4):393-406.
    Since the publication of his book on Zhongyong, Tu Weiming has worked for more than 30 years on an anthropocosmic reconstruction of the Confucian universe, in which self-transformation is defined both as the starting point and as the necessary vehicle for one’s spiritual journey. This article is primarily intended to examine Tu’s attempts to reconstruct Confucian spirituality but further to take a step forward to argue that in the spiritual world as construed by Confucius and Mencius, the experiential functions as (...)

    Compassion in the Lotus Sutra and Benevolent Love in the Analects: A Reflection from the Confucian Perspective.Xinzhong Yao & Qun Dong - 2012 - Buddhist Studies Review 28 (2):171-186.
    This article is intended to examine and then compare ci bei in the Lotus S?tra and ren in the Analects of Confucius. Despite many similarities, compassion and benevolent love have shown a difference between Mah?y?na Buddhist ethics and the Confucian moral system. This difference is revealed in the content and meaning of compassion and benevolent love, but more importantly through the ways they are practised, followed and expanded. Through different ways or paths, compassion and benevolent love have nevertheless established two (...)

    The way, virtue, and practical skills in the analects.Xinzhong Yao - 2012 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 39 (1):26-43.
    This article is intended to investigate how the concept of the Way (dao) is applied in the Analects of Confucius both as a universal norm and as a practical application in association with other concepts, virtue (de) on the one hand, and ability or skill (neng) or method (fang) on the other. Through a synthetic reconstruction of these concepts, it will come to the conclusion that the Way, virtue, and practical skills are the three central and mutually interpreted themes in (...)

    De and Virtue in Early Confucian Texts: Introduction.Xinzhong Yao - 2021 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 48 (1):5-12.
    The introduction to this special issue describes the emergence of the virtue ethics approach within the study of Confucian virtues in recent decades. It will first examine scholarly contributions to the discussion of Confucian virtue ethics and then raises questions concerning whether or not de 德 in early Confucian texts is identical with arête or virtue. It will then investigate the meaning and implication of de in Confucian contexts and make an argument for a new type of Confucian de ethics. (...)

By exploring original materials and sifting through the evidence hidden in these texts, examining their arguments and (...)

    De 德 Ethics in the Four Books.Xinzhong Yao - 2021 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 48 (2):143-156.
    Through a detailed analysis of de德 as used in the Four Books, this article is intended to examine the unity between two kinds of virtue manifested respectively through cultivating an admirable character in one’s self and enabling aretaic activities in the public sphere. By investigating how early Confucian masters integrate internal goodness and virtuous governance as the moral reasons for the common good and the flourishing of human community, we seek to reconstruct the ethics in the Four Books that is (...)

    Jen , love and universality—three arguments concerning Jen in confucianism.Xinzhong Yao - 1995 - Asian Philosophy 5 (2):181 – 195.
    Abstract Universality, rather than partiality, is the characteristic of Confucian jen. This article puts forward three arguments to clarify confusion of interpretation: (1) that jen, rather than shu, is the main thread running through the whole system of Confucianism, and that by its two procedures of chung and shu, it presents itself as an integration of one's self with others; (2) that jen, as love, does not signify a natural preference, but an ethical refinement of an ordinary feeling of fondness, (...)
