|Title:||The Metamorphosis of Tradition: The Idea of Law and Virtue in East Asian Political Thought||Authors:||Jones, D.M.||Issue Date:||1993||Citation:||Jones, D.M. (1993). The Metamorphosis of Tradition: The Idea of Law and Virtue in East Asian Political Thought. Southeast Asian Journal of Social Science 21 (1) : 18-35. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Francis Fukuyama's idea of the emergence of a postideological era characterized by the universal proliferation of liberal democracy, limited government, & rule of the law has received substantial criticism among East Asian writers & politicians. Presented here is an alternative model of political development which posits that an East Asian understanding of rule, law, & obligation evolved separately form Western practice. This model can explain the stability, order, & economic dynamism that characterizes the Pacific Rim. The ideal character of this East Asian model is examined, & the extent to which it may be considered analogous to a Western understanding of law, constitutionalism, & moral identity is evaluated. R. Jaramillo.||Source Title:||Southeast Asian Journal of Social Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/133438||ISSN:||03038246|
