Award Show

Here’s a rough transcript (in English translation) of the award show that was aired on CCTV-1 on the 17th of January 2013:

Hosted by Wu Daqi and Wu Tianxin; Introduction Remarks by Christian Murck, President of the American Chamber of Commerce in China:

“Tu Weiming taught at Princeton University where I was his student. Through his efforts Confucianism has engaged in an ongoing dialogue with Christianity and Islam, as well as Buddhism and Daoism. As a result of his influence as a teacher and writer the contribution of Confucian thinkers to China and to the world is better understood and is the subject of continuous study and discussion. Professor Tu is therefore an excellent candidate for the Brilliance of China Award and I recommend him to you warmly. Thank you.”

Q&A with Tu Weiming

Wu Tianxin“We know that Professor Tu has promoted New Confucian philosophy for now almost twenty years and that he has visited more than half of the countries of the world. Please tell us, Professor Tu, in those past twenty years, what was the most rewarding experience to you?”

Tu Weiming“What was most rewarding is hard to tell. I would like to continue my efforts to convey the Confucian traditions to even more places. Many of the young people that I’ve met wanted to know from me the “ABC” of Confucianism. So I told them, well, A is: Confucianism is a learning civilization, it’s about studying as much as possible to become a true human being; and B is: Confucianism is a fairly tolerant civilization, so it is able to engage with all different kinds of cultures; and C is: Confucianism is a Dialogical Civilization, it especially aims at using dialogue as a means to promote a culture of peace, with the new vision to create a peaceful world.”

主持人吴大维、吴天心;介绍评论人中国美国商会会长孟克文:

“杜维明曾在普林斯顿大学任教,在那里我曾是他的学生。因为他的努力,儒家思想与基督教、伊斯兰教以及佛教、道教展开了持续的对话。由于他作为一位老师和作家产生的影响,儒家思想家对中国以及世界的贡献能更好的为我们所

杜维明:“很难说哪一件是最有益的。我希望继续努力,在更多的地方传播儒家传统。我遇到过很多想要了解儒家的‘ABC’的年轻人。我告诉他们,A就是:儒家是学习型文明,这是说尽可能地多学习以成为一个真正的人;B就是:儒家是一个相当宽容的文明,所以它

能与各种不同文化交流;而C就是:儒家是对话型文明,它尤其致力于以对话为手段促进和平文化、创造一个和平世界的新愿景。
