Abstract :
Through examining the relevant publications concerning the Confucian and Chinese Christian discourses on human rights, this article attempts to show that, with its particular view of human being, Confucianism offers a distinctive approach to human rights that exhibits certain resonances with that of Christianity. The dialogue between Christianity and Confucianism on human rights may enhance the mutual understanding between the two traditions, their respective creative transformation, and further development and implementation of human rights in the Chinese speaking world.
