'Confucian Ritual and Moral Education'
Join us March 11 for a lively virtual conversation with UCCS Assistant Professor of Philosophy Colin Lewis as he presents his research.
Colin J. Lewis (PhD University of Utah 2017, MPhil University of Hong Kong 2012, BA Duke University 2009) is an instructor with the UCCS Department of Philosophy and director of the UCCS Asian Studies Minor. He primarily teaches courses on Asian and comparative philosophies, and is a co-creator and co-organizer for the ongoing UCCS Philosophy in the City series.
His areas of specialization include classical Chinese philosophy, ethics with a focus on moral psychology, philosophy of education, applied philosophy, philosophy of biology, and comparative political philosophy. In his talk, Dr. Lewis will discuss the following: How do we educate people to be moral, engaged members of society without indoctrinating them? The ancient Confucian notion of ritual may help us figure out how to cultivate morality and pro-sociality in ways that are desperately needed, even a modern and diverse world.
