Life Confucianism as A New Philosophy (Hardback)
Love and Thought
Life itself has long gone unnoticed in Confucian texts since the Qinand Han dynasties, which is similarto the forgetting of Being, per se, inthe Western philosophy after theAxial Period, according to Heidegger. Today, there is a philosophical mission to return life to Confucianism, restoring and reconstructing Confucianism in the perspective of a comparison between Confucianismand Husserl's Phenomenology. The author reduces the features of life to the essence of a thing, butreturns to life as the essence of Being. The author rejects the idea of post-philosophy in order to reconstruct the metaphysicaland the post-metaphysical gradations of Confucianism. These gradations are made along three strata in the life of human beings-no-being of anything (a life comprehension), metaphysical thinghood (the absolute Being), and post-metaphysical things (the relative beings). In this way we have a full understanding of the idea of Confucianism.
