Abstract

Voice from the East: The Chinese Theory of Justice. Translated by Hou Pingping and Wang Keyou. Reading, uk: Paths International, 2016.Huang Yushun’s Voice from the East: The Chinese Theory of Justice is an ambitious and deeply learned work of scholarship that seeks to establish a modern, global theory of justice rooted in Confucian ideals. Building on Huang’s commitment to “Life Confucianism,” this work argues for a coherent system of Confucian concepts and principles that draws on the great themes of China’s past, but is fully adapted to life in the contemporary world.Although the title refers to a “Chinese” theory built upon classical Chinese texts and vocabulary, Huang is working toward universal principles of justice that transcend their manifestation in a particular culture and can appeal to all humanity. This Chinese theory centers on yi 義 and zhengyi 正義, which, he argues, are not identical to the meaning of the word “justice” but have significant overlapping meanings and pertain to similar fundamental human concerns (21). Thus, in trying to overcome the asymmetry of contemporary scholarship, Huang suggests that a Chinese theory of justice is truly a human theory of justice (5).For readers who are even slightly familiar with the topic,
