A core goal of liberal education, as it has developed in the West, is the cultivation of thoughtful citizens oriented toward the common good. Confucianism embodies a powerful educational philosophy that addresses many similar themes. How can the Confucian tradition enrich the conversation about the future of liberal education in the United States and around the world? In this year's Berkley Center Lecture, Professor Tu Weiming, a world-renowned Confucian scholar and the founding director of the Institute for Advanced Humanistic Studies at Peking University, addressed this critical question.
Professor Tu's lecture was co-sponsored by the Georgetown University's Global Liberal Education Initiative.
