Political Ethics from the Perspective of Mencius and Farabi

Mencius and Farabi are renowned figures within two significant philosophical traditions: Islamic-Iranian philosophy and Confucian-Chinese philosophy. This research delves into an examination of the crucial subject of political ethics, exploring the perspectives of these two intellectuals within a broader context.

The primary focus of this research is to explore the potential similarities and differences between Mencius and Farabi, particularly in their views on the nature of morality and politics. With an analytic-descriptive approach, this study aims to investigate the principles, subjective and objective contexts, and political ethical doctrines put forth by both philosophers. It also examines the possibilities of reconciling these perspectives from the viewpoints of Farabi and Mencius
