Abstract

COMMENT AND DISCUSSION Beyond Liberal Democracy: A Debate on Democracy and Confucian Meritocracy , , , and At the twenty-second World Congress of Philosophy held in Seoul, Korea, from July 29 to August 5, 2008, a panel was convened to debate the ideas for a ``democracy with Confucian characteristics'' in 's Beyond Liberal Democracy (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2006). While all participants welcome the attempt to remedy the shortcomings of liberal democracy with Confucian teachings, worries that Bell's political thinking for an East Asian context may ``point beyond democracy tout court.'' For , Bell's chapter 6, ``Taking Elitism Seriously: Democracy with Confucian Characteristics'' may not be so much an alternative to liberalism as it is a challenge to the democratic value of equality that overlooks the dangers of an imperfect meritocracy. , on the other hand, approaches Bell's proposal of combining a Confucianism-inspired Upper House of Talent and Virtue selected through competitive examinations with a lower house of democratically elected representatives from the concern that it surrenders the Confucian requirement of virtuous leadership. This feature review also concludes with a spirited reply from Daniel Bell. Philosophy East & West Volume 59, Number 4 October 2009 523 > 2009
