A Comparative Study of Emotions and Moral Consciousness: Between Max Scheler’s Phenomenological Ethics and Zhu Xi’s Neo Confucianism
My doctoral dissertation was about the moral psychology in later Confucianism (especially Zhu Xi's thought and Wang Yangming's criticisms). Now my new research plan is to explore the issue of moral consciousness and emotions repeatedly discussed in later Confucianism, through a comparative approach, with a special focus on Scheler’s phenomenological ethics.
