Institute of Confucianism

Affiliated with College of Humanities and Applied Information


Introduction

Being the only educational organization in Taiwan devoted to the study of Confucianism, our institute was founded upon the goal of preparing specialists in Confucian culture for today’s world. Working with the southwestern Taiwan promotion center of the Confucius-Mencius Society of the Republic of China, our Confucianism Research and Promotion Center plays a key role in advancing research in Confucianism in the South. We also plan to cooperate with Confucianism-related institutions such as Confucius temples and societies of literature and history to formulate Confucian perspectives on modern manners and etiquette. It is hoped that Confucianism will gradually become appreciated and practiced in modern society, through such varied avenues as leisure and entertainment, tourism, movies, digital games, and publishing.      

Teaching and Learning

We offer courses in the following subject areas:

  • Writing : academic writing and research methodology
  • Confucianism: Confucian thought, Confucian classics, Mencius-Hsun-tzu thought, Confucianism and sages, the culture of Confucius temples, the development of Confucianism in Taiwan, Confucianism and folk beliefs, Confucian literature, Confucianism and astrology, Confucianism and cultural and creative industries, etc.
