Sigurðsson, Geir, Confucian Propriety and Ritual Learning: A Philosophical Interpretation Dao (2017) 16:461–464 DOI 10.1007/s11712-017-9569-3 Sigurðsson, Geir, Confucian Propriety and Ritual Learning: A Philosophical Interpretation Albany: State University of New York Press, 2015, vii + 177 pages Ori Tavor Published online: 27 July 2017 Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2017 In Confucian Propriety and Ritual Learning, Geir Sigurðsson offers a creative inter- pretation of the Confucian notion of li 禮, often translated as “ritual” or “propriety” but here defined by Sigurðsson as a “guideline for proper behavior” (13). The main goal of this work is stated very clearly in the introduction—to bring classical Confucian notions of self-cultivation and ritual learning into conversation with modern theories on education and ritualization in order to address key issues in contemporary Western philosophical discourse (4–5). From the Protestant Reformation onward, argues the author, ritual has often been seen as an agent of traditionalism and conservativism, a relic of the past that stands in direct opposition to scientific and social progress. This attitude has also been adopted by scholars of Confucianism, especially in the 20th century (14–15). Confucian Propriety and Ritual Learning aims to challenge this model by demonstrating that it is an outcome of specific historical conditions, namely the dominance of an Enlightenment discourse http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Dao Springer Journals
