The Concept of Human Dignity in Traditional Chinese Penal Law: the Bottom Line

Andrew Plaks, Hebrew University and Princeton University

Thursday, Feb. 20, 2014, 5:00-6:30 PM ~ USF Fromm Hall, Maier Room


Andrew Plaks is an internationally renowned scholar of East Asian studies and comparative literature, with a focus on early Chinese philosophical and historical texts and pre-modern Japanese literature. Author of several books on Chinese literature, Professor Plaks divides his time between the Hebrew University and Princeton University, where he is a professor emeritus. In this talk, he will apply tools of literary and philosophical analysis to the discussion of penal codes that prevailed in late imperial China.
