|Title:||Mencius and Xunzi on Human Nature: the Concept of Moral Autonomy in the early Confucian Tradition|
|Publisher:||Padova, Editoriale Programma|
|Abstract:||The doctrines on the goodness or evilness of human nature maintained in ancient China respectively by Mencius (390-305 B.C) and Xunzi ( 310-219 B.C: ) has been interpreted mosttly as a contradition within the Confucian school. In this article it is argued that they represent two distinct , yet possible and congruous, modes of interpreting and re-elaboarting Confucius teachings, two opposing yet largerly complementary currents which have developed within the Confucian school.|
