Xianglong was a prominent scholar of phenomenology and Chinese philosophy at Peking University. This is a major loss for Chinese and comparative philosophy. Those of us who had the good fortune of knowing him and working with him over the years were invariably impressed by his philosophical acumen and generous spirit. RIP, Xianglong.
