Confucianism in China: An Introduction.


Confucianism in China: An Introduction

Tony Swain



297 pages



Now that Confucianism seems to be reviving in China, Swain introduces the philosophy to English readers who may have little knowledge of China and no knowledge of the Chinese language. He explains the complexities of a sometimes challenging tradition as clearly and coherently as he can, but will not dumb it down. He begins with introductions to Confucianism and religion and to the way of the Ru. Then he traces the changing models and practices of Confucianism from the Zhou to Han dynasties, the Song to Qing dynasties, and modern China. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
