Key Concepts of Confucian Ethics

As you will recall, the concept of Ren, or humanness, is the most important principle in Confucian ethics. This is the idea of treating others with compassion. Ren frames all other virtues (both moral and non-moral). For this assignment, demonstrate your understanding of Ren and other key concepts of Confucian ethics by choosing one of the following options: Write a Poem Write lyrics and/or record a Song (may be an original tune or a parody) Write a script and/or record a TV or Radio Commercial Create a PowerPoint Presentation Create a Movie Poster Create a Travel Brochure While you may choose any of the above formats, you must cover some of the basics surrounding Ren. Include a definition of it, examples of Ren in everyday life, why Ren is an important tenet in Confucian ethics, and how does one show Ren towards others? What you submit to the drop box below will vary depending on which form of expression you choose above. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that what you submit can be easily viewed by an average person using a computer equipped with Internet access and Microsoft Office. Some examples might include: Poem: would likely take the form of a Microsoft Word document. Song: lyrics would likely be done in a Word document. Song: audio recording would ideally be in an NIP3 format (to ensure that the file is small enough to submit).
