Abstract: The forthcoming exposition delves into Mozi’s philosophy of Universal Love (兼愛, jian'ai) and its profound impact on Chinese civilization. Mozi (墨子, c. 470 BCE – c. 391 BCE) is a leading light in Chinese philosophical discourse of his time. At the heart of his idea lies the notion of impartial care, advocating that all human endeavors ought to originate from an unwavering foundation of undistinguished concern. This doctrine is instrumental in shaping a distinctive ethos grounded in the ethical and political aspirations for societal enhancement. Unbiased love becomes fundamental to his intellectual framework, acting as the benchmark for all logical actions. As Chinese philosophical traditions began engaging with Western thought in recent times, Mohist reasoning experienced a revival, reinforcing the notion that Chinese philosophical traditions also possess an analytical inclination. Our goal in this talk is to explain how Mozi's understanding of love embodies an idea of benevolence rooted in a rigorous epistemological construct.

Join us 5 minutes prior to the beginning of the session!
