Abstract

For long, Western philosophers have attempted to answer Socrates’ proverbial question on life and morality universally. Yet, many of those theories can seem incomplete to people on the other side of the globe. For a more holistic view on virtue, scholars have begun to incorporate Eastern perspectives, studying Confucius, Mencius and other Asian philosophers, alongside Bentham, Mill and Kant. In a new book launched by SMU’s School of Law, both Eastern and Western views on ethics and social responsibility are presented - with the contemporary reader in mind.
