Way, Learning, and Politics
Way, Learning, and Politics (July 1993)
Essays on the Confucian Intellectual
Tu Wei-ming - Author

The emergence of New Confucian Humanism as a major intellectual and spiritual tradition in the Chinese cultural area since the Second World War is a phenomenon vitally important and intriguing to students of history, philosophy, and religion. The Confucian vision, rooted in the Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Japanese civilizations, has been sustained through more than two millennia of constant social change and holds special meaning for both indu...(Read More)

It is the first translation of the work into a European language and provides unique access to this formative period in Chinese history. Because Yang Hsiung&rsq...(Read More)
 
 
Taoist Meditation
Taoist Meditation (May 1993)
The Mao-shan Tradition of Great Purity
Isabelle Robinet - Author
Julian F. Pas - Translator
Norman J. Girardot - Translator

Taoist Meditation is the first and only scholarly study to discuss the ancient Mao-shan Taoist tradition of visionary meditation while, at the same time, helping to clarify the little understood relationship among the early Taoist classics, the Buddhist tradition, and the later Taoist religion. Most importantly, Taoist Meditation is a pioneering study that fully and accurately describes the unique visionary cosmology, bodily symbolism...(Read More)
 
 
Law and Morality in Ancient China
Law and Morality in Ancient China (March 1993)
The Silk Manuscripts of Huang-Lao
R. P. Peerenboom - Author

"The main contributions of this work are threefold. First, making use of the recently discovered Mawangdui silk manuscripts, Peerenboom provides a thorough-going and persuasive account of the philosophical and political import of the previously undocumented Huang-Lao school. His is the first detailed treatment of this material in English.

"Secondly, the author uses the new material to reexamine classical schools of Chinese thought and to cl...(Read More)
 
 
The Tao of the Tao Te Ching
The Tao of the Tao Te Ching (January 1992)
A Translation and Commentary
Michael LaFargue - Author

"This translation and commentary takes a novel, even controversial approach to the Tao Te Ching, presenting the reader with a full-blown culturological understanding of this core Taoist classic. In its resolute attention to the detail of historical context, it is engaging, plausible, and for those close to the text, importantly revealing. LaFargue, taking full advantage of recent archaeological finds to inform his reading, is very contempor...(Read More)
 
 
Taoist Mystical Philosophy
Taoist Mystical Philosophy (April 1991)
The Scripture of Western Ascension
Livia Kohn - Author

"What I like best about this book is its comprehensiveness and solidity. The topic is significant for the study of Chinese religion and philosophy because it presents a detailed discussion of Taoist philosophy by practitioners of Taoist religion. It moves our understanding of later Taoist philosophy to a new level. It clearly defines its terms and topics, traces the historical background, and discusses the author and the history of ...(Read More)
 
 
The Shape of the Turtle
The Shape of the Turtle (March 1991)
Myth, Art, and Cosmos in Early China
Sarah Allan - Author

"Allan's study will prove to be as invaluable as it is innovative." -- Harold D. Roth

Many Chinese philosophic concepts derive from an ancient cosmology. This work is the first reconstructions of the mythic thought of the Shang Dynasty (ca. 1700- 1100 B.C.) which laid the foundation for later Chinese patterns of thought. Allan regards the myth, cosmology, divination, sacrificial ritual, and art of the Shang as different manifestations of a ...(Read More)
 
 
Two Visions of the Way
Two Visions of the Way (January 1991)
A Study of the Wang Pi and the Ho-shang Kung Commentaries on the Lao-Tzu
Alan K. L. Chan - Author

"The Ho-shang Kung commentary played a central role in the elaboration of religious Taoism, while the metaphysically oriented Wang Pi commentary was important to the articulation of Buddhist ideas and to the development of neo-Confucianism. Chan is able to identify and to articulate clearly the various questions surrounding both authors and texts. He then provides answers that are about as full and persuasive as the extant sources will allow. I...(Read More)
 
 
Studies in Chinese Philosophy and Philosophical Literature
Studies in Chinese Philosophy and Philosophical Literature (July 1990)
Angus C. Graham - Author

Graham addresses several fundamental problems in classical Chinese philosophy, and in the nature and structure of the classical Chinese language. These inquiries and reflections are both broad based and detailed. Two sources of continuity bring these seemingly disparate parts into a coherent and intelligible whole. First, Graham addresses that set of fundamental philosophical questions that have been the focus of dispute in the tradition, and tha...(Read More)
 
 
The Confucian Creation of Heaven
The Confucian Creation of Heaven (June 1990)
Philosophy and the Defense of Ritual Mastery
Robert Eno - Author

"It looks at the Confucians as a school and at their sociological position, not simply at the ideas of the main thinkers. It proposes a conception of the school as developing their own way of conducting private life and rejects the claim (always hitherto accepted) that they were all yearning for public office and failing to get it. This is an entirely original approach." -- A.C. Graham, Brown University

This book explores the earliest Confu...(Read More)
