Using _Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction_ in class


I used Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction as the main textbook in a course on Neo-Confucianism this past semester. Student comments on the book (submitted anonymously as part of the teaching evaluation process) are available here. If any readers have used the book, Justin and I would love any further feedback! (I’d also be happy to share similar information about other course books, for other authors out there.)


  1. Does anyone have any anecdotal evidence as to just how many courses are offered across the US that might actually include enough Neo-Confucianism to warrant assigning a textbook or introductory readers? Just curious?

  2. Hi George — not really, though Justin and I have certainly heard from some folks who are teaching such classes.
