Speaker: Ya Zuo, Department of History, UC Santa Barbara
IKnowledge has a fundamental role in Neo-Confucian philosophy, and “knowing” is a mandatory procedure via which one reaches the ultimate goal of Neo-Confucianism, the perfection of moral cultivation. A Neo-Confucian exercises her moral agency via knowing with the aspiration of attaining the Way (dao), the state of constant and spontaneous sagacity. In this talk, Ya Zuo will introduce the Neo-Confucian theory of knowledge and explain how it relates to personal fulfillment and flourishing.
This talk will be live webcast and in person at 2:00 pm, and will be recorded and made available on our IWC YouTube channel for future viewing: Link:https://www.youtube.com/user/iwcinsantabarbara/live
