“Confucianism is about being a good person by emphasizing the virtues that go together with creating a society that’s harmonious […] each individual does better when people around us are doing better.” – Prof. Angle


Join us for a conversation with Author and Professor Stephen Angle and Dr. Matthew Croasmun about the Analects of Confucius. A Professor of East Asian Studies at Wesleyan University focusing on human rights, politics, and ethics both in China and globally,  Prof. Angle views Confucianism not as some ancient, abstract wisdom but something very much alive, with values that reflect our needs today. For him, benevolence and harmony with support for gender equality is the best way to realize Confucian values in our current context.

One of the foundational texts of Life Worth Living, a seven-week course founded at Yale University and now taught both online and on site at Grace Farms Foundation, the Analects have helped people for centuries in defining the shape of flourishing life. This session is aimed at helping those new to Confucianism find their way into its wisdom–Prof. Angle is adept at drawing the modern Western reader into these ancient texts.

Our Books on Faith & Meaning series consists of monthly presentations introducing selections from the Faith & Meaning section of the Grace Farms Library. Spanning multiple religious and philosophical traditions, both ancient and contemporary, these texts encourage us to think critically about the meaning in our lives.

 


Grace Farms Foundation’s interdisciplinary humanitarian mission is to pursue peace through five initiatives — nature, arts, justice, community, and faith — and Grace Farms, a SANAA-designed site for convening people across sectors. Our stake in the ground is to end modern slavery and gender-based violence, and create more grace and peace in our local and global communities.
