Death, Sacrifice, and the Problem of Tradition in the Confucian Analects
Södertörn University, School of Culture and Education, Philosophy.ORCID iD: 0000-0003-3210-4712
2018 (English)In: Comparative and Continental Philosophy, ISSN 1757-0638, p. 1-11Article in journal (Refereed) Epub ahead of print
Abstract [en]

Taking its point of departure in an enigmatic passage from the Analects, in which the interlocutor is likened by the master to a sacrificial vase, the essay explores how this teaching can be read as a indirect commentary on the proper way of inhabiting and communicating tradition. The relation to the ancestors and the proper way of handling the rites for the dead is shown to reveal a more basic hermeneutic argument in Confucian thinking, opening the text to its own future transformation.
