New Essays in Chinese Philosophy


Edited By Hsueh-li Cheng

New Essays in Chinese Philosophy explores various facets of Chinese thought which have received dynamic and creative scholarly attention in the recent past. It argues that Chinese culture is not «logic-less». The Confucian perception of moral sense and of reason can be revitalized to meet current challenges. The book displays the religiosity of Confucian philosophy and explains why contemporary Confucianists may become Christians, and vice versa. It also illuminates the Taoist and Buddhist concepts of the universe by comparing Chinese and Western metaphysics, and expounds how the ideas of yin, yang and harmony in Chinese tradition are consistent with recent advances in science.
