Two Conferences by Prof. Richard Lynn

Reception of the Zhuangzi 莊子in the West: the early years

Par Richard John Lynn, Professor Emeritus of Chinese Thought and Literature, University of Toronto

Thursday, April 11 at 12:30 pm, Amphi 5, Inalco

The reception of the Daoist classic Zhuangzi in the West has a long history prior to the appearance of the first integral translations in the 1880s and should be studied as part of the 17th and 18th centuries European general encounter with South and East Asian religious traditions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, and, of course, Daoism—a religiocultural experience that profoundly shaped the development of modern Orientalism before imperialist ambitions and commercial greed during the early 19th century compromised what had originally been essentially a search to expand Western religious perspectives—by discovering in Asia’s non-Abrahamic religions parallels and precedents for basic Judeo-Christian beliefs about God, creation, and the individual soul.
