A Transformational Creation of Pragmatic Reason

  • Keping WangEmail author


As distinguished from the Kantian concept of practical reason, the notion of pragmatic reason is initially coined in 1980s by Li Zehou. Li’s philosophizing features a close interaction between practical expectation and theoretical hypothesis, and a rediscovery of classical Confucianism in comparison with Western ideas. By so doing has he worked out an alternative to the sociocultural issues and human concerns in both Chinese and global contexts.
