The golden rule as the core value in confucianism & christianity: Ethical similarities and differences
Graduate studies at Western
Asian Philosophy 2 (2):173 – 185 (1992)
|Abstract||Abstract One side of this paper is devoted to showing that the Golden Rule, understood as standing for universal love, is centrally characteristic of Confucianism properly understood, rather than graded, familial love. In this respect Confucianism and Christianity are similar. The other side of this paper is devoted to arguing contra 18 centuries of commentators that the negative sentential formulation of the Golden Rule as found in Confucius cannot be converted to an affirmative sentential formulation (as is found in Christianity) without a change in its meaning. In this respect Confucianism and Christianity are different|
