孔夫子 Kong Fuzi, or Master Kong, Latinized as Confucius , is probably the most well known name in the field of Chinese philosophy. In this category, we use the Master’s name and situate him on Shanghai’s European-style building-studded river-front promenade, the Bund.

It’s a metaphor for how the ancient Chinese philosophers might think about today’s world.

What would they say? What would they contribute? How does their words and thoughts, echoing down through the ages, help us make sense of the modern age?

 

Spaceship China explores Confucius, Confucian thought, Daoists and Daoist philosophy, and an eclectic mix of Chinese sages throughout the ages…..  and wonders what the ancients have to contribute to today’s issues…

 

Confucius on the Bund is a metaphor for the implications of classical Chinese thought in the 21st Century.
