New book on Chinese religion and philosophy

Prof. SHAN Chun (University of Politics and law in Beijing; International Confucian Association) has published a new book with Springer titled Major Aspects of Chinese Religion and Philosophy. Those with institutional access to SpringerLink should be able to get the full text on-line; everyone should be able to access at least the Table of Contexts and the abstracts of each chapter. It is a broad, synthetic account, appreciative rather than historically or philosophically critical, that represents one contemporary Chinese approach to China’s religio-philosophic traditions.

  1. The book title’s “Religion” and “Philosophy” are Western concepts and terminologies that are nowhere to be found in the Chinese classics. What were the author and publisher thinking? That they can get away with this newspeak? – Thorsten Pattberg
