<p>Abstract:</p><p>This article uses an interpretation of âGuan juâ éé (Osprey) in the <i>Kongzi shilun</i> ååè©©è« (Confuciusâ discussion of poetry) manuscript to reconsider a group of analogies in <i>Mengzi</i> 6A between virtue and desire. The interpretation, which foregrounds the role of sexual pleasure in moral cultivation, can be related to a series of analogies between virtue and appetite in Book 6A. Reading these analogies together with the conversations in book 1, I argue that the moral pleasures of the human heart in the <i>Mengzi</i> are more than elevated forms of aesthetic joy or rational management of immediate sensual satisfaction. They are directly rooted in the communal nature of immediate sensual satisfaction itself.</p>
