Abstract

This talk proposes an original comparison between the Western and the Eastern philosophical traditions viewed from the perspective of phenomenology. First, it addresses the phenomenological tradition with a reconsideration of the ancient distinction between phenomena and noumena. Then it takes up the comparative perspective of phenomenology East and West with a look at the Western major divide between antiquity and modernity. Finally, it proposes to place the two chief representatives of traditional Eastern and modern Western philosophy, Confucius and Kant, into the previously developed framework of the "quarrel between the ancients and the moderns". Throughout the talk a special regard is devoted to issues of law and politics, which serve to bring out neatly and clearly the specific differences between ancient and modern as well as between Eastern and Western ways of thinking.
