In contemporary China, the relationship between Confucianism and modern democracy remains one of the most significant unresolved issues. And the study of this issue will inevitably lead to another issue that is more fundamental, i.e. what the nature and function of Confucianism are. I argue that neither of these two issues is resolved as of now. My study will interpret Confucianism through Kantian reading from the political perspective to reveal the authentic Confucianism, thereby solving these two issues together.
