East Meets West: Aristotle & Confucius On Virtue and Civility

July 11 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$49

What is civility? Is it comportment? A state of being? Can it be taught or learned? Does it require virtue, or is it a virtue in its own right? Is civility something that only the Western world is concerned with? In addressing these questions, we will look at virtue ethics, one of the more compelling approaches in the realm of moral philosophy. Explore civility and virtue by looking at both the Aristotelian and Confucian traditions. These two traditions, despite their respective evolutions taking place in relative states of temporal and geographic separation, are united in their pursuit of defining what it means to be a flourishing human being in a thriving community, shaped by moral cultivation.
