|Title:||The Confucian Ren and care debate: reassessment, development, and future directions||Authors:||Li, Chenyang||Keywords:||Humanities::Philosophy||Issue Date:||2022||Source:||Li, C. (2022). The Confucian Ren and care debate: reassessment, development, and future directions. Philosophy Compass, 17(9), e12868-. https://dx.doi.org/10.1111/phc3.12868||Project:||MOE 021573-00001||Journal:||Philosophy Compass||Abstract:||It has been three decades since comparative philosophers began to associate the Confucian concept of ren 仁 with contemporary Western care ethics. It would be useful to revisit the issue and to reassess related debates. In this essay, I first contextualize this discourse by tracing the emergence of care as a philosophical concept in the West and explicate the Confucian concept of ren in terms of care as it is formulated in classic texts. Then I respond to challenges, including opposing views from influential care ethicists Nel Noddings and Virginia Held. I also discuss some promising studies to further this discourse.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/163059||ISSN:||1747-9991||DOI:||10.1111/phc3.12868||Rights:||© 2022 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
