Title: Jesse Ciccotti
Mengzi and Civil Society
In this talk I will explore the idea of civil society from a Ruist  
(Confucian) perspective. More specifically, I want to explore one text, the  
Mengzi, for particular insights that might help open a way for the  
discussion of civil society to make advances in political contexts that  
lack democratic institutions. I am not the first person to look at the  
possible convergence of civil society and Ruist traditions from a broad  
angle, but until now scholars seem to conclude that there is little ground  
to be gained by doing so. Nevertheless, I think a closer look at specific  
texts rather than generalized positions based on proof-texts drawn from  
across a diversified tradition can provide a more sound foundation from  
which to begin discussing civil society in what might be considered  
unlikely places.
