Agorà on 13 November,2018, 18:00: Confucius and China's Empty Center. The Noble and His Surroundings.

From the idea of linking imperial authoritarian philosophy with orthodox Marxism, China is stylized as the central challenge for the West. The spiritual resources of the past and world modernization concepts could become the starting point for China. Professor Helwig Schmidt-Glintzer, Director of the China Centrum Tübingen, will speak on this topic and his most recently published book: Chinas leere Mitte. Die Identität Chinas und die globale Moderne. Matthes & Seitz Berlin 2018.

Helwig Schmidt-Glintzer, Jahrgang 1948, Sinologe und Publizist, ist seit 2016 Seniorprofessor der Universität Tübingen, Gründungsdirektor des China Centrum Tübingen (CCT) sowie Präsident des Erich-Paulun-Instituts. Er war von 1993 bis 2015 Direktor der Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel und zuvor von 1981 bis 1993 Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Ostasiatische Kultur- und Sprachwissenschaft an der Universität München. Seit 2014 Vizepräsident der Internationalen Konfuzius-Gesellschaft. 2015 Staatspreis der Volksrepublik China für besondere Verdienste um die chinesische Buchkultur. Seine Forschungsthemen sind: Geschichte Chinas sowie die europäische Beschäftigung mit China, Ungleichzeitigkeit von Modernisierungsprozessen unter besonderer Berücksichtigung von Wertsphärenverschiebungen sowie der Buddhismus als transnationale Religionsbewegung. Schmidt-Glintzer ist Autor verschiedener Bücher zur Geschichte und Kultur Chinas, darunter Chinas Angst vor der Freiheit. Der lange Weg in die Moderne (2009). Zuletzt erschien Mao Zedong: „Es wird Kampf geben“ – Eine Biografie (2017) sowie Chinas leere Mitte. Die Identität Chinas und die globale Moderne (2018), beide im Verlag Matthes & Seitz Berlin.
