Building an Ethical Culture East and West

Call for Papers

Theme: Building an Ethical Culture East and West
Type: International Conference
Institution: Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP)
  Hunan Normal University
Location: Changsha (China)
Date: 20.–21.7.2019
Deadline: 20.4.2019


The East and the West have different ethical cultures, but the
differences are relative, for the two kinds of ethical cultures can
be integrated and enriched and complemented. In the era of
globalization, the East and the West should learn from each other,
especially in the field of ethical culture. Is it possible to build
an ethical culture reflecting both eastern and western perspectives?
It may be very difficult. However, each of us can make effort to
contribute our insights and experience to fulfill the goal. We all
live in one world and have common concerns about our society and the
future of humanity. We are responsible to form ethical human beings
and to develop moral values and to construct ethical cultures.

The following will be the special focus of the conference:

1. Eastern and Western ethical traditions
2. Chinese ethics and Chinese ethical culture
3. Western ethics and Western ethical culture
