All are welcome to join us for five informal presentation/discussion sessions on Chinese philosophy which takes the placeof religion in other civilizations. The series explores Chinese views on people living together "under heaven" and how these views are reflected in art and literature. Discussion will focus on applying humanist and naturalist ideas to everyday life,with tentative topics as listed below:
  • The place of philosophy in Chinese culture.
  • Basic Confucian ideas (Confucius and Meng Zi).
  • Basic Daoist ideas (Lao Zi and Zhuang Zi).
  • Characteristics of humanism and naturalism reflected in literature and art.
  • Cultivation of character and health: living philosophy.
Suggestions of related topics are welcome!
