The Research Centre for Human Values of the University presented the first series of Philomathia Lectures on Human Values: Chinese Philosophy and the Development of Compassion, from 15 to 17 May. Prof. David B. Wong, Susan Fox Beischer and George D. Beischer Professor of Philosophy of Duke University, was the speaker. Professor Wong delivered two lectures, ‘Early Chinese Philosophy and the Nurture and Nature of Moral Development’ and ‘Shaping Compassion into a Virtue’. Both lectures explored the interesting convergence between early Chinese philosophical conceptions of moral development, and Western evolutionary, biological, and psychological theories. On 17 May, a seminar was held to discuss the lectures, featuring Prof. Neil Levy, University of Oxford/University of Melbourne; Prof. Shun Kwong-loi, Sin Wai Kin Professor of Chinese Culture at CUHK; Prof. Edward Slingerland, University of British Columbia; and Prof. Richard A. Shweder, University of Chicago.
