Contributions by: Chen Xia, Qin Feng

The traditional Chinese philosophies of 'nature and human' lie at the heart of China's modern culture and popular philosophical beliefs. To understand China, one must first understand its traditional philosophies. This book outlines the core beliefs and key elements of the three principles of traditional Chinese philosophy: the natural theory (cosmology), the human theory (the theory of life), and the theory of knowledge (the theory of methodology). This book offers a systematic analysis of these three fundamental theories, enabling the reader to gain a clear understanding of the part they have played in the creation of modern day China. It is aimed towards academics and students studying both philosophy and China, as well as researchers and professionals seeking clear concise information on traditional Chinese philosophies and popular Chinese culture. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO [Subject: Philosophy, Chinese Studies, Asian Studies]
