Abstract

In this essay, I discuss the place of social roles in the method of moral cultivation that we can find in the Analects. This method centers on using a system of role-based rituals to ensure that our social role terms have properly effective content. I then draw on empirical psychology to argue that this cultivation strategy has contemporary promise.
