New Asia College has long been recognized as the leader in the study of Confucianism in the 20th Century. Influence of our College founders, Ch’ien Mu, Tang chun-i, Mou Tsungsan and Xu Fuguan, has spread beyond the Chinese academia to the world. As renowned scholars in Confucianism, they have expressed great concern on the development of contemporary Chinese society as well as the relation of China to the rest of the world.
Confucianism has been the core value of Chinese society and one of the most significant influences in eastern cultures for centuries. Confucianism has faced challenges during different time periods in history, especially in contemporary China. With the rapid growth in economy and abundance of resources, there has been a growing interest in understanding our traditional culture for the purpose of personal cultivation. In response to this demand, the New Asia College, with the generous support from Moonchu Foundation, has established the “New Asia Lectures on Confucianism” in 2013.
