Studies in Chinese Philosophy and Philosophical Literature

A C Graham

Studies in Chinese Philosophy and Philosophical Literature

A C Graham

$139.99

Hardback
Graham (visiting in philosophy, U. of Hawaii) addresses fundamental problems in classical Chinese philosophy, and in the nature and structure of the classical Chinese language. In explicating that tradition, he contrasts the Chinese world view with the basic (and often unconscious) presuppositions that ground our own (Western) tradition. Paper edition (unseen), $14.95. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

- Publisher 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 that have defined its character: What is the nature of human nature? What can we through linguistic and philosophical scrutiny discover about the date and composition of some of the major texts? What sense can we make of the Kung-sun Lung sophistries?
A second source of coherence is Graham s identification and articulation of those basic and often unconscious presuppositions that ground our own tradition. By so doing, he enables readers to break free from the limits of their own conceptual universe and to explore in the Chinese experience a profoundly different world view."
