NDPR Review and New Confucianism

A recent book review on NDPR raises issues in the philosophy of Kant that made me think of Mou Zongsan’s New Confucianism, and more particularly, of current Taiwanese philosopher Lee Ming-huei’s efforts to further develop and defend Mou’s views. This is the review:

Jeanine Grenberg, Kant’s Defense of Common Moral Experience: A Phenomenological Account, Cambridge University Press, 2013, 300pp., $99.00 (hbk), ISBN 9781107033580. Reviewed by Patrick Frierson, Whitman College

As you’ll see from the review, Grenberg posits a very strong role for “moral feeling” (about which the reviewer is quite skeptical!). Whether or not this is good Kant, it does sound something like Lee’s reading of Confucianism. For what that is worth!
