Aristotle and Confucius are pivotal figures in world history; nevertheless, Western and Eastern cultures have in modern times largely abandoned the insights of these masters. Remastering Morals provides a book-length scholarly comparison of the ethics of Aristotle and Confucius. May Sim's comparisons offer fresh interpretations of the central teachings of both men. More than a catalog of similarities and differences, her study brings two great traditions into dialog so that each is able to learn from the other. This is essential reading for anyone interested in virtue-oriented ethics.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"One comes away from this volume with the feeling that one has audited a brilliant conversation between Confucius and Aristotle...A not-significant contribution of this volume is that Sim, in reading Aristotle through a Confucian lens, brings out aspects of Aristotle that are often overlooked by Western eyes accustomed to reading him in the light of metaphysics, colored by the subsequent development of his thought in Western moral and political theory."
Jude P. Dougherty, FCS QuarterlySee more reviews
"May Sim’s book is an impressive achievement and should be read by anyone interested in Confucius, Aristotle, or the project of comparative philosophy." --Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy
