  2. Shenbai Liao (2011). The Subjectivity and Universality of Virtues—An Investigation Based on Confucius' and Aristotle's Views. Frontiers of Philosophy in China 6 (2):217-238.
    Philosophers today are inclined to propose virtues are either something subjective or something universal. However, Confucius and Aristotle, who made the most profound investigations into virtues, did not develop such theses. The deep-seated reason lies in their belief that there is always a possibility for a human being to become a man of practice, which cancels the need of proposing subjectivity thesis.
