Synopsis

An Outline of Chinese Traditional Philosophy by Li Cunshan

The traditional Chinese philosophies of 'nature and human' lie at the heart of China's modern day culture and popular philosophical beliefs. To understand China, you must first understand its traditional philosophies. This book from leading expert Li Cunshan outlines the core beliefs and key elements of the three principles of traditional Chinese philosophy: the natural theory (cosmology); the human theory (the theory of life); the theory of knowledge (the theory of methodology. The coverage offers a systematic analysis of these three fundamental theories enabling the reader to gain a clear understanding of the part they've played in the creation of modern day China. An Outline of Chinese Traditional Philosophy is aimed at academics and students studying both philosophy and China, plus researchers and professionals seeking clear concise information on traditional Chinese philosophies and popular Chinese culture. Published by Paths International, in association with the prestigious Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, this English language edition is being made available outside of China for the very first time.
