- Modern Neo-Confucianism, Mainland Neo-Confucianism, Psychological Confucianism, Political Confucianism
Modern Neo-Confucianism refers to all the reformed Confucianism schools since the Opium War. The Modern Neo-Confucianism discussed in this paper is the Modern Neo-Confucianism School in the narrow sense, which includes the Confucian schools of Hong Kong, Taiwan, overseas and mainland since the May Fourth Movement. In the 1920s, mainland schools of Neo-Confucianism sprung up, and enjoyed growing influence in mainland China over the past ten years. Mainland Neo-Confucians were no longer satisfied with the philosophized Confucianism. They argued to develop the "Psychological Confucianism" into "Political Confucianism"; and to transform the "revival of Confucianism" into the "revival of Confucian Religion". In contrast to Neo-Confucians HK&TW, the Neo-Confucians mainland China has strong political appeals. Drawing on the differences & similarities between these two schools, this paper will discuss the characteristics and influence of modern Neo-Confucianism thoughts.
