Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter of the book, the author compares the three visions of peace, and then highlights the implications of his study. Comparison of the three visions of peace must be selective. The author emphasizes those elements that are pertinent to the reading of Ephesians. He considers the nature of peace, and the various elements in the three visions of peace. Dio Chrysostom focuses on three frames of reference: relationships within a city, relationships between cities, and relationships within the kingdom. The chapter explores various elements that they use to structure their vision of peace. These include the appeals for peace within a specific frame of reference, the sequence for implementing the vision, the central operative principle guiding the vision, and the vision's attempt at balancing and reimagining hierarchy. The Daxue and the Zhongyong explicitly outline a sequence for implementing the Confucian vision of peace.

Keywords: Zhongyong ; Confucian vision of peace; Daxue; Dio Chrysostom
