Enlightenment and Ontology. Autochthonous Enlightenments: China

Keywords: Enlightenment, Chinese Enlightenment, ontology, Confucianism, education, manipulation of being

Abstract

In this article, we will continue our study of some ontological aspects of phenomenon of Enlightenment. Now we consider Chinese Enlightenment. But first we must prove that Chinese Enlightenment exists, and we do it. We show that Chinese Enlightenment is Confucianism. Further, we consider Confucian mechanisms designed to manipulate being and show how Confucianism uses traditional ontological mechanisms and creates new ontological mechanisms.
