The Confucian revival which manifests itself in the Modern Confucian current, belongs to the most important streams of thought in contemporary Chinese philosophy. This book introduces this stream of thought by focusing on the second generation Modern Confucians-Mou Zongsan, Tang Junyi, Xu Fuguan and Fang Dongmei.
