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)
Sanctioned Violence in Early China
Sanctioned Violence in Early China (August 1989)
Mark Edward Lewis - Author

This book provides new insight into the creation of the Chinese empire by examining the changing forms of permitted violence--warfare, hunting, sacrifice, punishments, and vengeance. It analyzes the interlinked evolution of these violent practices to reveal changes in the nature of political authority, in the basic units of social organization, and in the fundamental commitments of the ruling elite. The work offers a new interpretation of the ch...(Read More)
Centrality and Commonality
Centrality and Commonality (June 1989)
An Essay on Confucian Religiousness A Revised and Enlarged Edition of Centrality and Commonality: An Essay on Chung-yung
Tu Wei-ming - Author

“It is a spectacular example of the Confucian commentarial tradition at its best. Tu manages to elucidate the original text while building on it in new and exciting ways. He has a clear grasp of the inner logic which is the engine of Chung yung's thought, and best of all, he is able to communicate it clearly in his own text. It is impossible to think about teaching a class in early Confucian thought without recommending this book. If it we...(Read More)
The Russian Hero in Modern Chinese Fiction
The Russian Hero in Modern Chinese Fiction (August 1988)
Mau-sang Ng - Author

The Russian influence took root in the Chinese intellectual tradition that evolved after the Literary Revolution of 1917. When the Chinese communists turned to Russia for their inspiration they also accepted the Russian version of the novel's form and function in society. However, they did not accept it uncritically. Chinese understanding of the arts goes back for thousands of years and thus Chinese intellectuals brought their own kinds of tradit...(Read More)
