Dao Companions to Chinese Philosophy

A New Book Series Published by Springer

Series Editor: HUANG Yong


While “philosophy” is a Western term, philosophy is clearly not something exclusively Western. In this increasingly globalized world, the importance of non-Western philosophy becomes more and more obvious. Among all non-Western traditions, Chinese philosophy is certainly one of the richest. In a history of more than 2500 years, many extremely important classics, philosophers, and schools have been produced. As China is becoming an economic power today, it is only natural that more and more people become interested in learning about the cultural tradition, including the philosophical tradition, of China. The Dao Companions to Chinese Philosophy series aims to provide the most comprehensive and updated introduction to various aspects of Chinese philosophy as well as philosophy heavily influenced by Chinese philosophy. Each volume in this series focuses on an individual school, text, or philosophical topic.
