A Source Book in Chinese Philosophy

Предња корица
Princeton University Press, 1963 - 856 страница

A Source Book in Chinese Philosophy is a milestone along the complex and difficult road to significant understanding by Westerners of the Asian peoples and a monumental contribution to the cause of philosophy. It is the first anthology of Chinese philosophy to cover its entire historical development. It provides substantial selections from all the great thinkers and schools in every period--ancient, medieval, modern, and contemporary--and includes in their entirety some of the most important classical texts. It deals with the fundamental and technical as well as the more general aspects of Chinese thought. With its new translation of source materials (some translated for the first time), its explanatory aids where necessary, its thoroughgoing scholarly documentation, this volume will be an indispensable guide for scholars, for college students, for serious readers interested in knowing the real China.

First received as a text book for a class on Eastern Philosophies at Oklahoma State in 1990, this volume has been an invaluable reference over the years. Admirably encapsulates some fairly impenetrable subject matter. Прочитајте целу рецензију

A great book if you're overwhelmed by the sheer amount and scope of chinese philosophy and you just want to know where to start. It provides a nice spine for further studies. Прочитајте целу рецензију
