Part of the Key Concepts in Chinese Thought and Culture book series (KCCTC)


Today, ecumenism is once again reconsidered in a global context, for it remains relevant in social, political, economic and cultural fields. Its relevance is deemed to apply quite extensively to world governance and global collaboration in particular. The discussion hereby aims to look at the idealistic uses and the historical facts attached to ecumenism, and specifies the sense of compassion, the virtue of humaneness and the teleology of harmony. Moreover, it perceives harmony as being essential to what made ecumenical policies possible in the past, and still makes them possible at the present.
