Abstract

Progressive Confucianism is not an historical account; instead, it is a proposal for a moral way of living in the world today. Stephen Angle, in his lecture “Growing Moral: Living as a Progressive Confucian in the Twenty-First Century,” argues for a Confucian way of life that both updates the Confucian tradition and helps us adjust to the quick pace and high demands of modern living. Progressive Confucianism re-envisions the Confucian tradition in ways to help it meet the challenges of the modern world, such as gender inequality. And, like the sage, Progressive Confucianism is a work-in-progress, leaving open many possibilities for future developments.
