Waldemar Brys’ article “Extending Kindness: A Confucian Account” has recently been published in the Pacific Philosophical Quarterly. In this article, Brys argues that kindness cannot do all the theoretical work that Mengzi wants it to do if one interprets it as an emotion. Brys concludes in this article that the notion of extending kindness is best understood as the exercise of a capacity for intelligently performing kind actions. Please click here to read the article.
