On confucius' principle of consanguineous affection: A reading of the dialogue about the three-year mourning in the lunyu
Asian Philosophy 16 (3):173 – 188 (2006)
|Abstract||In his dialogue with Zai Wo about the three-year mourning, Confucius establishes a principle of 'justification by feeling at ease,' and insists that one should transcend natural desires by moral emotions. More significantly, he further regards kinship love as the ultimate root and supreme principle of human life. Thus, this dialogue contains almost all the basic elements of the Confucian spirit of consanguineous affection.|
