2010 AC Graham Memorial Lecture: "Coming to Terms with De" Wed, 2010-06-02 14:15
Professor Emeritus Robert H Gassmann was the first AC Graham Memorial Lecturer.
In this public lecture, he presents a Deconstruction of ‘Virtue’ and an Exercise in Scientific Morality. The outcome is a novel and well-evidenced translation for the word ? (d?),conventionally rendered as “Virtue”.
The abstract of the lecture is available at http://www.soas.ac.uk/events/event56556.html
Treat this not as a video, but as a sound recording ? if there are some Chinese quotes, look at the screen (on your computer, mp3 player, phone etc) and it will probably be there for you to read. Like the smartest radio you’ve ever seen.
Recorded at SOAS, in the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre, on 23 February 2010. The lecture series was supported by The London Confucius Institute: http://www.londonconfuciusinstitute.org.uk/
