The Confucian Ethics of Junzi in Contemporary Light Capitalism

Abstract [en]

In recent times, many have proclaimed a return to traditional values and a move away from one Capitalism towards various capitalisms. This present paper explores the relationship between Confucianism and capitalism. It argues that Confucian capitalism can mean state-led development, that Confucian values are seen as the driver for economic growth, and that Confucianism can be seen as the driver of social change of capitalism. By explaining the trend of "light capitalism" and its three evils of uncertainty, insecurity and unsafety, it is argued that Confucian ethics and the striving for becoming an exemplary person (junzi) within a web of relationships can be a way to introduce social change into capitalist practices.
