The great image has no form, or On the nonobject through painting by François Jullien ( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In premodern China, painters used imagery not to mirror the world, but to evoke unfathomable experience. Considering this art alongside the philosophical traditions that inform it, this book explores the 'nonobject', a notion exemplified by paintings that do not seek to represent observable surroundings

The impossible nude : Chinese art and western aesthetics by François Jullien ( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The undraped human form is ubiquitous in Western art and even appears in the art of India and Japan. Only in China, François Jullien argues, is the nude completely absent. In this enthralling extended essay, he explores the different conceptions of the human body that underlie this provocative disparity. Contrasting nakedness (which implies a diminished state) with nudity (which represents a complete presence), Jullien explores the traditional European vision of the nude as a fixed point of fusion where form joins truth. He then shows that the absence of the nude in Chinese art evinces an understanding of the human body as changeable and transitory. Viewed in light of each other, these differing concepts allow for a new way of thinking about form, the ideal, and beauty, enabling us to delve deeper into the relationship between art and the ideas that lie at its roots. Beautifully illustrated and gracefully translated into English for the first time, The Impossible Nude will fascinate anyone interested in art history, Chinese art, or aesthetics

Vital nourishment : departing from happiness by François Jullien ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The philosophical tradition in the West has always subjected life to conceptual divisions and questions about meaning, Although this process has given rise to a rich history of inquiry, it proceeds too fast, contends Francois Jullien. In its anxiety about meaning, Western thinkers since Plato have forgotten simply to experience life in vital Nourishment, Jullien slows down and begins to think about life from a point outside of Western inquiry, using the third- and fourth-century B.C.E. Chinese thinker Zhuanghi as a foil in this installment of his continuing project of plumbing the philosophical divide between Eastern and Western thought."--BOOK JACKET

13 editions published between 1985 and 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
De l'universel, de l'uniforme, du commun et du dialogue entre les cultures by François Jullien ( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in French and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Depuis ses tout premiers travaux, l'ambition de François Jullien est de construire un rapport interculturel Chine-Europe tout à la fois effectif et fécond, c'est-à-dire qui se garde de l'universalisme à bon marché, comme du relativisme, son double inversé. Il était donc requis d'emblée dans son programme de recherches qu'il se consacrât un jour à la question même de l'universel, et à ses enjeux politiques. Jullien commence par retravailler le sol conceptuel de la notion même d'universel. Qu'est-ce qui distingue et en même temps relie cette notion à celle d'<<uniforme>>? Et les deux précédentes notions à celle de <<commun>>? Puis il entreprend d'éclairer en profondeur la façon chaotique dont la dimension de l'universel a émergé en Europe. Car lorsqu'on l'examine d'un point historique (et dans le temps long qui est celui des idées), il est frappant de voir à quel point l'universel est une notion composite, voire hétéroclite, en ce qu'elle plonge ses racines dans trois régimes de pensée et d'histoire très hétérogènes : celui de la logique, via la philosophie et les sciences, celui du droit, via l'Empire romain, et enfin celui de la religion, via la christianisme et saint Paul

"Que toute réalité soit conçue comme processus en cours relevant d'un rapport d'interaction ; que tout réel ne soit donc jamais analysable comme entité individuelle mais comme relation ; qu'il y ait par conséquent à l'origine de tout phénomène non pas une mais toujours deux instances fonctionnant corrélativement : c'est là une représentation de base de la culture chinoise, dont la lecture de Wang Fuzhi (1619-1692) permet ici de saisir les enjeux
