Emmanuel College, October 1, 2013
A lecture by Professor Stanley Jiadong Zheng, Professor of Confucianism & Chinese Philosophy and Visiting Scholar at Emmanuel College.
Professor Stanley Jiadong Zheng is Professor of Confucianism and Chinese Philosophy, former Director, Institute of Chinese Philosophy of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Beijing, and Visiting Professor at Harvard and other universities in the United States. Currently Professor Zheng is located in Toronto as Visiting Scholar at Emmanuel College and teaching in the Chinese Theology School, Tyndale University.
In this lecture a renowned Confucian scholar shares his journey of interacting between two world thought systems and some issues and questions arising from such an encounter. What difficulties might confront followers of both traditions, such as are many East Asian and East Asian Canadian church members steeped in Confucian practices while striving to be faithful Christians? What fresh thinking and/or acting might be sparked for non-Confucian academics, theologians and faith practitioners from their own perspective and context?
