Produktbeschreibung
This is the first volume in English to provide a comprehensive introduction to the philosophical thinking of representative Neo-Confucian thinkers from the eleventh to eighteenth centuries. The volume describes the contributions these thinkers made to debates and discussions associated with the interpretation and deployment of key concepts and issues such as: sagehood; xing (human nature); xin (heart/mind); li (principle) and qi (vital force); dao; tian (heaven); ren (humanity); qing (feeling); cheng (sincerity) ; knowledge; learning; innate capacities vs. learned capacities; self-cultivation; as well as the legacies of the sages of antiquity, the Duke of Zhou, Confucius, Mencius and Xunzi. Individual chapters also locate the contexts in which these debates and discussions were developed: from interchanges with contemporaries to arguments extended through time. No other book exists which attempts to provide the same sort of comprehensive coverage and analysis. Individual contributors are all experts in the field and range from senior scholars to outstanding early career scholars who have been recommended to the project by their peers.

Rezensionen
"John Makeham's Dao Companion to Neo-Confucian Philosophy is an extremely important collection of scholarly essays that will have to be in the bibliography of anyone commenting on relevant portions of the Neo-Confucian cultural development. ... Makeham's introductory essay ... is most likely the most important contribution to the volume. Makeham provides an historical vision of Neo-Confucianism ... and a helpful interpretation of the contemporary approaches." -- Robert C. Neville, International Journal for Philosophy of Religion, Vol. 71, 2012
From the reviews:

"This is primarily a 'philosophical' companion to a philosophical tradition but it also has a great deal to offer to intellectual historians, comparativists, and anyone interested in Chinese and East Asian thought. ... This mostly philosophical companion to Neo-Confucian philosophy is highly informative on moral philosophy and moral psychology intimately linked in Neo-Confucianism. ... this book will be widely consulted by philosophically minded scholars of all kinds and not just by specialists in China and East Asia." (Conrad Schirokauer, Journal of Chinese Studies, Vol. 54, January, 2012)

"Editor John Makeham called upon specialists from several lands to prepare this book. ... the Dao Companion to Neo-Confucianism is an academic milestone. Its contributions to the study of Chinese Neo-Confucianism will continue to inform, intrigue, and stimulate scholarly and philosophic reflection for years to come. ... It will also be a useful guide for advanced students and interested general readers. I recommend this book highly for every scholar of Chinese philosophy in general and Neo-Confucian thought in particular." (Kirill O. Thompson, Journal of Chinese Religions, Vol. 39, 2011)…mehr
