Just added to the site: Ge Zhouguang, "If Horses had Wings: The Political Demands of Mainland New Confucians in Recent Years"
If you read this text together with the three texts mentioned in the last blog post, you will have a very good idea concerning what has been going on in New Confucian circles in China over the past few years.
We've been working away on the web site this summer, but have neglected the blog. Those interested can now read excerpts of transcripts of three fairly recent conferences held by leading Mainland New Confucians (Gan Yang, Chen Ming, Zeng Yi, Tang Wenming, Qiu Feng). Mainland New Confucians are far more politically ambitious than diaspora New Confucians, and these exchanges offer an interesting window onto their world.
