I will be in London next week, and among other things, giving a talk at LSE in the Political Philosophy Seminar series on Tuesday, 24 June at 4pm, in the Old Building, Graham Wallas Room (5th floor; ask for directions at reception). The title is “Neo Confucian ‘Civil Society’?” It’s open to all; please come by if you are interested!
Great Topic! I am also writing something about it. I do think Neo-Confucian private academy (书院）is the backbone of Confucian civil society, no matter in the past or in the future. If possible, I would like to know more about your idea.
Hi Bin Song, Very glad to hear this! I have been busy getting ready for the trip, but will try to reply with a few ideas here within a day or two. I also look forward to hearing more from you!
