Confucian Ideas and the Possibility of Same-sex Marriage: Our Attitude toward Traditions
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Professor Zhang Xianglong responded to the issue of legalization of same-sex marriage from the perspective of Confucianism, and expounded the possible attitude of Confucianism towards this issue. His ideas are new and important, but he may have neglected the applicability of Confucianism in modern society. If Chinese traditional culture, especially some specific Confucian concepts, such as Yin and Yang, male and female, patriarchal law, etc., does not undergo the transformation of modernity and is weighed against Western concepts, its power to explain the problems in the process of modernization will be greatly reduced.
