Confucius and Jesus on Responding to Injury: A Comparative Reflection
School of Humanities and Social Sciences
one might think that Jesus' teaching is equivalent to the Laozian wisdom the Confucian teaching is intended to contravene. [...] quick reasoning of the sort exemplified above is largely responsible for an exaggerated view of the dichotomy between the great thinkers of East and West. [...] virtue requires of me that, in the context of injury and opposition, I be the kind of person who can (with sincerity of heart) love, pray for, and bless my enemy.
