Cultural Development, Justice and Responsibility


  Center for Moral Culture Studies, Hunan Normal University, Changsha, P.R. China

July 15-16, 2017

Conference Program


The era of globalization has not fundamentally weakened cultural plurality; rather, it strengthens communication and interaction among different cultures and civilizations. The international society seems to acknowledge that even in these global times cultural development can still be characterized by national differences. Nevertheless, more and more people have come to agreement on certain basic values, such as justice and responsibility. As eye-catching values, justice and responsibility can or should be shared by different peoples and nations with different cultural backgrounds. Specifically, they are moral values for humankind to solve national and international issues not only in the past, but more so in this global age. As two important themes justice and responsibility should be reflected in relation to both national and international cultural developments.
