Daniel A. Bell’s talk at the UN University on China’s New Confucianism

Daniel A. Bell discussed China’s changing political landscape this past October at the United Nations University.   Communism has lost its capacity to inspire the Chinese. But what is replacing it? And what should replace it? Clearly, there is a need for a new moral foundation for political rule in China, as well as a new philosophy that can provide moral guidance in everyday life.  You can watch the interview here.

Daniel’s excellent position as one of the few Western professors at a major Chinese university (Tsinghua University in Beijing) gives us a unique, unbiased look at Chinese society.
