Fu Jen School

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Cardinal Paul Yú Pin, the origin of Fu Jen School

Fu Jen School (輔仁學派) is a Catholic philosophical school in Taiwan. It advocates the spiritual core of Fu Jen Catholic University’s motto, and establishes a combination of Scholasticism, Neo-scholasticism, Transcendental Thomism, and Traditional Chinese philosophy, that called the "Chinese Neo Scholastic Philosophy" (中華新士林哲學).[1]


The original Fu Jen School refers to the historical and philosophical school developed during the Beijing period (1925~1951) of Fu Jen Catholic University. The initial purpose was to resist the New Culture Movement and anti-traditional Chinese ethics advocated by Peking University. The main scholars are represented by Chen Yuan, Yu Jiaxi (zh), Chou Tsu-mo (zh), Qigong and others.[2]

After Fu Jen was re-founded in Taiwan in 1961, Paul Yú Pin, the first Fu Jen president, formulated a new university motto "Truth, Goodness, Beauty, Sanctity" and started the earliest graduate institute of philosophy in Taiwan, making the Fu Jen Philosophy Department the only center of Scholasticism in Taiwan. He developed a set of philosophical theories centered on "Three Kinds of Knowing" (三知論) and gradually became a school in the sixty years after WWII.[3][4]

Since Bernard Li became the new Fu Jen president in 2004, he has integrated these philosophical researchers and their achievements, which is officially called "Fu Jen School". Based on Fu Jen Philosophy Department and Religion Studies Department, together with Fu Jen alumni and Catholic scholars who teach in other top universities in Taiwan (such as National Taiwan University and National Central University), Fu Jen school has become one of the main philosophical schools in the Far East.[5]
