Five Relationships and Contract
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Professor Fan Ruiping proposed that in the Confucian view, the basis of the family relationship is family affection rather than a contract. This judgment of the Confucian family view is based on a comparative perspective on civilization. However, not only husband and wife, but also monarch and minister, were established on the basis of the contract. Although Confucianism lacks the strong utilitarian intention of Western utilitarians, it is not without the contractual consciousness of equality and mutual benefit.
