Guanxi in Confucianism：The Meaning of Lun and Its Endogenous Approach
This article interprets the connotation of lun (relationship) whilst showing the logical deductive process from category to relationship, and from fact to ethics. It is known from the correlational studies by Pan Guangdan that the abstract category of wulun remains to be generalized, which results in the confusion of the dual empirical-ethic character. In Confucian classics, wulun is constituted in accordance with two basic principles of relative and respect, manifested as the practical consideration in light of love and righteousness in daily life. Love and righteousness are deeply embedded in any relationship, but their constituents by which the obligations of action are regulated vary. The empirical generality of wulun is further analyzed as the extension of basic principles.
