Deep unity lurks in Confucian embrace

One commentator's perspective on Guy Alitto's Has Man a Future? Dialogues with the Last Confucian (Foreign Language Teaching Research Press, 2010) and its implications of the resurgence of Confucian moral-ethical thought in China:

Deep unity lurks in Confucian embrace, by Francesco Sisci (Asia Times)

Excerpt:
Liang Shuming, who died in 1988, insisted that Western distinctions didn't make sense, and Guy Alitto, an American, used his Western sensibility to bring up this issue for ears in both the East and West that had grown deaf to this old knowledge. Thirty years after being written in Chinese, the conversations between Liang, the old man from the Yellow River basin, and Alitto, the young man from Southern Italy via the US, have just been published in English (Guy Alitto, Has Man a Future? Dialogues with the Last Confucian, Foreign Language Teaching Research Press, 2010).
