Zhuangzi’s Critique of the Confucians: Blinded by the Human

Author:
Kim-chong Chong

Publisher:
SUNY Press

Publication Date:
2016




Abstract:

The Daoist Zhuangzi has often been read as a mystical philosopher. But there is another tradition, beginning with the Han dynasty historian Sima Qian, which sees him as a critic of the Confucians. Kim-chong Chong analyzes the Inner Chapters of the Zhuangzi, demonstrating how Zhuangzi criticized the pre-Qin Confucians through metaphorical inversion and parody. This is indicated by the subtitle, “Blinded by the Human,” which is an inversion of the Confucian philosopher Xunzi’s remark that Zhuangzi was “blinded by heaven and did not know the human.” Chong compares Zhuangzi’s Daoist thought to Confucianism, as exemplified by Confucius, Mencius, and Xunzi. By analyzing and comparing the different implications of concepts such as “heaven,” “heart-mind,” and “transformation,” Chong shows how Zhuangzi can be said to provide the resources for a more pluralistic and liberal philosophy than the Confucians.

Table of Contents:


Blinded by heaven
The pre-established heart-mind
The transformation of things
Zhen, some normative concerns

Silk: Trade and Exchange along the Silk Roads between Rome and China in Antiquity

Editor:
Berit Hildebrandt

Publisher:
Oxbow Books

Publication Date:
2017


Abstract:

Already in Greek and Roman antiquity a vibrant series of exchange relationships existed between the Mediterranean regions and China, including the Indian subcontinent, along well-defined routes we call the Silk Roads. Among the many goods that found their way from East to West and vice versa were glass, wine spices, metals and precious stones as well as textile raw materials and fabrics of wool and silk, a precious fibre that was highly appreciated in many of the cultures along the roads that were named after it by modern scholars.

These collected papers bring together current historical, philological and archaeological research from different areas and disciplines in order highlight the use, circulation and meaning of silk as a commodity, gift, tribute , booty, and status symbol in varying cultural and chronological contexts between East and West, including technological aspects of silk production. Rome and China in antiquity provide the geographical and chronological frame for this volume (c. from the third century BCE to the fifth century CE), but also earlier and later epochs and cultures in between these empires are considered in order to build and intercultural and diachronic understanding of long-distance relations that involved silk.

Gombrich among the Egyptians and Other Essays in the History of Art

(Thank Prof. Bagley for sharing this information)

Author:
Robert Bagley

Publication Date: 
October 2015

Publisher:
Seattle: Marquand Books




Abstract:

In this collection of essays, five previously published and three new in this volume, a western historian of Chinese art examines the received ideas of art history from the vantage point of another culture. On the premise that what we feel a need to explain and how we explain it alike depend on what we assume to be normal, the essays all adopt a comparative approach. Whatever body of material is taken as case study-Gothic churches, Egyptian reliefs, Chinese bronzes, Insular gospel manuscripts-the problems addressed are of broad general relevance to the discipline. They include the nature of art history's styles and periods, iconography as explanation, the rationale for art historical description, technical studies and the artistic imagination, and histories of representation. Clear and accessible, this book will interest anyone concerned with the conduct of art historical scholarship and the origins and consequences of its practices.

The Philosophy of the Mòzi: The First Consequentialists

Author:
Chris Fraser

Publisher:
Columbia University Press

Publication Date:
September 13, 2016




Abstract:

Mohism was an ancient Chinese philosophical movement founded in the fifth century BCE by the charismatic artisan Mòzi, or "Master Mo." Its practitioners advanced a consequentialist ethics, along with fascinating political, logical, and epistemological theories, that set the terms of philosophical argumentation and reflection in China for generations to come. Mohism faded away in the imperial era, leaving the impression that it was not as vital as other Chinese philosophical traditions, yet a complete understanding of Confucianism or Daoism is impossible without appreciating the seminal contribution of Mohist thought.

The Philosophy of the Mòzi is an extensive study of Mohism, situating the movement's rise and decline within Chinese history. The book also emphasizes Mohism's relevance to modern systems of thought. Mohism anticipated Western utilitarianism by more than two thousand years. Its political theory is the earliest to outline a just war doctrine and locate the origins of government in a state of nature. Its epistemology, logic, and psychology provide compelling alternatives to contemporary Western mentalism. More than a straightforward account of Mohist principles and practice, this volume immerses readers in the Mohist mindset and clarifies its underpinning of Chinese philosophical discourse.

Order, Objectivity, and Efficacy

Epistemology and Logic: Drawing Distinctions Political Theory: Order Through Shared Norms

Heaven: The Highest Ethical Model

Ethics: The Benefit of All

Ancient Central China: Centers and Peripheries along the Yangzi River

Author:
Rowan K Flad; Pochan Chen

Publisher:
Cambridge University Press

Publication Year:
2013




Abstract:

Ancient Central China provides an up-to-date synthesis of archaeological discoveries in the upper and middle Yangzi River region of China, including the Three Gorges Dam reservoir zone. It focuses on the Late Neolithic (late third millennium BC) through the end of the Bronze Age (late first millennium BC) and considers regional and interregional cultural relationships in light of anthropological models of landscape. Rowan K. Flad and Pochan Chen show that centers and peripheries of political, economic and ritual activities were not coincident, and that politically peripheral regions such as the Three Gorges were crucial hubs in interregional economic networks, particularly related to prehistoric salt production. The book provides detailed discussions of recent archaeological discoveries and data from the Chengdu Plain, Three Gorges and Hubei to illustrate how these various components of regional landscape were configured across Central China.

Table of Contents:

1. Introduction: centers and peripheries in the ancient Yangzi River Valley

Part I. Setting the Stage:
2. The environment of Central China
3. Historiography and the topography of research: a history of archaeology in Central China

Part II. Political and Cultural Topographies:
4. The Sichuan Basin: Shu and its predecessors
5. The Middle Yangzi: the archaeology and history of Chu and its predecessors
6. Periphery at the center: the Ba and archaeological cultures in the Three Gorges

Part III. Topographies of Economic Activity and Ritual:
7. Economic topographies: production, exchange, and the integrating role of salt
8. Ritual topographies: sacrifice and divination
9. Ritual topographies: burials and social identity; 10. Conclusion: landscapes of interaction and the interaction of landscapes

The Ruins of Kocho: Traces of Wooden Architecture on the Ancient Silk Road

Editors:
Lilla Russel-Smith; Ines Konczak-Nagel

Publisher:
Berlin Museum für Asiatische Kunst

Publication Year:
2016

Abstract:
The ancient city of Kocho (Goachang 高昌) surrounded by desert sand, was an important oasis on the Ancient Silk Road. Situated near Turfan in Xinjiang, China the region is becoming an important tourist destination with a newly built high-speed rail link to central China. One hundred years ago expeditions competed to explore this area. A large number of early medieval wooden objects were brought to Berlin by the so-called German Turfan Expeditions (1902-1914) saving them from locals looking for fuel in the cold winters. An international project (2014-2015) researched these uniquely preserved architectural elements which lay undisturbed in the sand for hundreds of years. Beautiful carved wooden capitals and panels reminding us of Roman and Byzantine architecture are exhibited for the first time. Lavishly painted beams could be reassembled illustrating exactly traditional Chinese technologies described in 11th century building manuals. The ruins where they were found were also documented using historical and modern photographs. This volume presents the results of the research project and accompanies the exhibition.
