Tang Junyi (Chinese: 唐君毅; pinyin: Táng Jūnyì; Wade–Giles: T'ang Chün-i, 17 January 1909 – 2 February 1978) was a Chinese philosopher, who was one of the leading exponents of New Confucianism. He was influenced by Plato and Hegel as well as by earlier Confucian thought.
Born in mainland China, graduated from philosophy department of National Central University (Nanjing University), Tang Junyi went into exile in Hong Kong in 1949, after the declaration of the People's Republic of China, living there for the rest of his life. There he helped found the New Asia College, which was integrated into the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1963. His work has mainly been influential in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the United States.
