The Chinese Mind: Essentials of Chinese Philosophy and Culture

Excerpt

This volume is composed exclusively of chapters selected from the proceedings volumes resulting from the four East-West Philosophers' Conferences held at the University of Hawaii in 1939, 1949, 1959, and 1964. Each of the chapters here was originally a paper presented at one of these conferences and discussed at that time. (Incidentally, some of the discussion which took place is included at the end of some of the papers, in the form of Questions and Answers.)

This volume -- and two succeeding volumes on India and Japan -- are intended both for the general reader and for the philosophy student and scholar. These are not textbooks as such, but are presented with this possibility strongly in mind, since they provide an excellent basis for courses in their respective fields. The papers are substantial and authoritative, but not overly technical, presentations on Chinese philosophy in general and also on specific aspects of Chinese life and culture in their philosophical and social contexts.

While this is essentially a reprint volume, the papers have been re-edited by their authors (except Hu Shih and E. R. Hughes, who are no longer living) and by the editor of this volume, and some changes in style, translation, transliteration, etc., have been . . .
