Review of Makeham, Ed., Learning to Emulate the Wise

My review of the new volume edited by  John Makeham, Learning to Emulate the Wise: The Genesis of Chinese Philosophy as an Academic Discipline in Twentieth-century China, has just been published in The China Journal. Anyone who lacks JSTOR access and would be interested in a copy, please let me know. My conclusion: “In sum, Learning to Emulate the Wise is a splendid and unusually unified collection, as important for thinking about the nature of philosophy around the globe today as it is for understanding the complex Chinese intellectual world in the first half of the 20th century.”
