Study on Inspiring Soft Power of Chinese Traditional Ethics



“Humanism”, “Using promotion and life improvement”, “Self-discipline”, “LiGong LiDe and LiYan” and other traditional ethics of Chinese traditional culture, are highly valuable for improving the moral construction of present China. But in terms of characters and limits of development of traditional ethics, there also be some drawbacks. Based on this, to renew traditional ethics, we must correctly grasp the inherent wisdom in our tradition, and aim at modern moral problems to realize the creative transformation and innovative development of traditional ethics.
