The World Prospect of Confucian Ethics: Fukuyama's Views of Confucianism
LANGUAGE NOTE | Document text in Chinese; abstract in English only.
Countries and ethnic groups with a Confucian cultural background have performed well during the pandemic. This comparative advantage will inspire efforts to Confucianize ethics. Fukuyama believes that Confucianism as a whole is a defense of authoritarianism but does not pose a major obstacle to liberal democracy, with which it is even compatible in some respects. However, Fukuyama believes that countries led by Confucianism may suffer from disadvantages such as low social capital. Through Fukuyama, the Western opinion leader, we can see the status of Confucian ethics in the spectrum of Western ethics, but there is still a long way to go for Confucian ethics to gain greater recognition worldwide.
