Book Description:

A brilliant, brief paperback introduction to the basic ideas that underlie traditional Chinese culture, this new edition focuses on the ``Golden Age'' (600 B.C.-150 B.C.) of Chinese philosophy. The central theme is that the diversity of thought in early China and the gradual emergence of dominant intellectual trends, formed the character of Chinese civilization and have remained significant into modern times. Professor Mote compares Chinese ideas with Western ones in a way that broadens the students' understanding of Chinese culture and their own background. Abstract material is made accessible by connections the author makes between intellectual thought and Chinese society and everyday life.
