Sinyi Lecture is a large lecture set up by the Sinyi Center for Cultural Studies at the Institute of Advanced Humanistic Studies at Peking University. With reference to the context of the business world, the lecture aims at providing a platform for advanced exchanges and dialogues around the theme of the modern destiny, mission, and transformation of the Confucian tradition. It invites distinguished scholars and business leaders to discuss topics relevant to business practices, expecting to move across disciplinary boundaries, to overcome the separation between theory and practice, and to uncover, enrich, and apply traditional Confucian resources in spirituality, morality, ethics, and social institutions, so that the value of ren (human-heartedness or co-humanity) can prevail and be broadened, and the exploration and construction of a new business ethics under the perspective of spiritual humanism can be advanced.
