Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To provide an exciting introduction to the background of contemporary civilization in China, the editors of this book bring together translations from Chinese sources that illustrate Chinese thought since earliest times. Most were made especially for this book. The traditions represented range from Confucianism and Taoism to Buddhism.

In addition to presenting the major schools of classical philosophy, this volume discusses yin-yang theories of cosmology and geomancy and the rationale of monarchy and dynastic rule. Neo-Confucianism is dealt with in its manifold revival in the Sung dynasty, the political reforms of Wang Anshih, and the philosophical school of Reason.
