The Pursuit of Wisdom: Ancient Greek and Chinese philosophy and literature

Roundtable Discussions: The Pursuit of Wisdom: Ancient Greek and Chinese philosophy and literature

This inquiry aims to develop comparative perspectives on the pursuit of the good life in ancient Greek and Chinese philosophy and literature. It breaks new ground in the field of comparative philosophy and intellectual history, which to date presents extensive literature on comparative pictures of the good life. Yet, relatively few discussions focus on the processes necessary for attaining the good life. The innovative nature of this project lies in its focus on the processes associated with the pursuit of wisdom in the respective traditions. The attention here will be on issues concerned with practice, discipline, resources required for such pursuits, as well as their underlying epistemological assumptions.
