The great image has no form, or On the nonobject through painting by François Jullien ( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 354 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 213 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

De l'universel, de l'uniforme, du commun et du dialogue entre les cultures by François Jullien ( Book )
13 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in French and Italian and held by 140 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

On the universal, the uniform, the common and dialogue between cultures by François Jullien ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
François Jullien, the leading philosopher and specialist in Chinese thought, has always aimed at building on inter-cultural relations between China and the West. In this new book he focuses on the following questions: Do universal values exist? Is dialogue between cultures possible? To answer these questions, he retraces the history of the concept of the universal from its invention as an aspect of Roman citizenship, through its neutralization in the Christian idea of salvation, to its present day manifestations. This raises the question of whether the search for the universal is a uniquely Western preoccupation: do other cultures, like China, even have a notion of the universal, and if so, how does it differ from ours? Having considered the meaning of the concept in the East and West, Jullien argues that, if communication between cultures is to be meaningful, facile assumptions of universal values and complacent relativism need to be examined. It follows, therefore, that dialogue between cultures should not begin with issues of identity and difference, but rather by considering divergence and profusion. By no longer simply assuming universality, we allow for greater self-reflection. -- Publisher description
