New on the site this time:
More on Yao Yang, this time his “Confucian pragmatism.”
Yao Yang and Qin Zizhong, "An Analysis of Confucian Liberalism," which is a long, scholarly text, designed to show other intellectuals they know what they are talking about.
Yao Yang, “"Rebuilding China's Political Philosophy," a shorter text which covers some of the same themes, but which is more political and cast toward a more general audience.
Yao Yang, "The End of Ideology?", an earlier text, which precedes Yang’s Confucian turn, illustrating some of the thoughts that led him in that direction.
