Anglophone interpretations of Ruism most often take inspiration from Aristotle or Dewey. Yet the 20th century New Ruists in Hong Kong and Taiwan said little about either and focused much more on Kant. This talk examines what they saw in Kantian philosophy, and how it influenced their interpretation of Ruist thought.
