January 10, 2009 2:00pm to 4:00pm

At a time when interest in China and its rich culture is increasing internationally, China’s interest in its own history and traditions has also been growing. Since the end of the Cultural Revolution in 1976, the Chinese have been looking to their past as they plan for their future.

Most notably, the Chinese have been showing a renewed interest in the teachings of Confucius, a philosopher, teacher and political thinker, who lived 2,500 years ago.

Community leaders discuss the role of Confucianism in daily life, then join in small group discussions with the audience.
