Collection of Critical Biographies of Chinese Thinkers
Throughout history, the thinking of Western Europe and America has often dominated scholarly conversation, even on objects of study outside of those cultures. Thus Western academic inquiry into Chinese philosophy, for example, from Confucius and Laozi to Mozi and Chen Liang, has rarely engaged with scholarly work from China itself. This has been the West's great loss. Penn State University Press is pleased to have entered into an agreement with Nanjing University Press to allow greater access to the critical work of Chinese scholars concerning prominent Chinese thinkers. These volumes, all displaying the text in both Chinese and English, offer unique, fresh, and provocative assessments of these essential Chinese philosophical and intellectual figures.
