Synopsis:Early Confucian philosophers took seriously the idea that our ordinary polite behavior has profound moral implications. Indeed, they seemed to suggest that to be a morally good person requires that one also be a polite person. In this talk, I will outline just why the Confucians emphasized ordinary good manners in their accounts of morality, with a special focus on what we lose when our manners are bad or neglected.
