Virtue Ethics and Consequentialism in Early Chinese Philosophy

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, 2007 - Confucianism - 412 pages
Van Norden examines early Confucianism as a form of virtue ethics and Mohism, an anti-Confucian movement, as a version of consequentialism. The philosophical methodology is analytic, in that the emphasis is on clear exegesis of the texts and a critical examination of the philosophical arguments proposed by each side.
