6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Specific Chinese models for theories of knowledge were premised upon a structurally ordered external reality; since natural (or cosmic) order is organic, it naturally follows the 'flow' of structural patterns and operates in accordance with structural pri

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This title carefully maps the Chinese modernization discourse, highlighting its relationship to other, similar discourses and situating it within historical and theoretical contexts.

The rebirth of the moral self : the second generation of modern Confucians and their modernization discourses by Jana Rošker( )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Confucian revival which manifests itself in the modern Confucian current belongs to the most important streams of thought in contemporary Chinese philosophy. This book introduces this stream of thought by focusing on the second generation modern Confucians--Mou Zongsan, Tang Junyi, Xu Fuguan and Fang Dongmei. They argue that traditional Confucianism, as a specifically Chinese social, political, and moral system of thought can, if adapted to the modern era, serve as the foundation for an ethically meaningful modern life"--
The yields of transition : literature, art, and philosophy in early medieval China( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume is dedicated to the Wei Jin and Southern and Northern Dynasties (220-589 AD), which is generally regarded as one of the most fascinating phases in Chinese history. The collection opens new theoretical and methodological pathways in sinological studies, bringing to the forefront a new idea of intercultural encounters based upon a culture of recognition. It highlights the significance of transition in the making of Chinese culture and history, revises prevailing historical approaches in the study and research of China and develops and enhances existing theories or methodologies in this specific area of research. The wide diversity of contributions to the present volume reflects the multifaceted potential for creativity and renewal of this period. The focus is upon the interaction of ideas, researches and perspectives concerning a broad scope of relevant and significant issues in contemporary sinology. In order to understand this diversity, a wide range of cultural, theoretical and historical aspects are considered. The book reveals a new image of the period, thereby undermining the absolute authority and putative objectivity of common historical sources and interpretations. It shows that this was a period rich with political, economic, cultural and theoretical achievements that would prove decisive for the future development of Chinese culture and society"--Publisher's description, p.

Searching for the way : theory of knowledge in pre-modern and modern China by Jana Rošker( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His book deals with the analyses and interpretations of modern Chinese philosophical discourses, especially those concerning theories of knowledge. The author looks at how contemporary Chinese philosophy is awakening from a long slumber and substantiates the hypothesis that this new awakening is fully prepared for fruitful confrontations with the new challenges presented by a globalized world. The study of twentieth-century Chinese philosophy has not been the subject of any extensive and systematic discussion in neither the West in general nor in Western Sinology in particular. Hence, this book will be of immense interest to those who are interested in the emerging fields of comparative philosophy, Chinese studies and theology
Following his own path : Li Zehou and contemporary Chinese philosophy by Jana Rošker( Book )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Jana S. Ros̆ker offers the first comprehensive overview and exegesis of the work of Li Zehou, who is one of the most significant and influential Chinese philosophers of our time. Ros̆ker shows us how Li's complex system of thought seeks to revive various Chinese traditions, and at the same time attempts to harmonize or reconcile this cultural heritage with the demands of the dominant economic, political, and axiological structures of our globalized world. Variously characterized as 'neo-traditional, ' 'neo-Kantian, ' 'post-Marxist, ' 'Marxist-Confucian, ' 'pragmatist, ' 'instrumentalist, ' 'romantic, ' and more, Li's work was central to the period known as the Chinese Enlightenment in the 1980s and has helped modify and transform antiquated patterns of Chinese intellectual discourse. He is one of the rare Chinese thinkers whose work has had not only had a deep and lasting impact on Chinese intellectuals, but has acquired a broad readership outside of China as well. Seen from a broader intercultural perspective, Li's unique and imaginative approach to a wide range of basic theoretical problems has created new styles of intellectual investigation, while reminding us of our belonging to a common humanity, regardless of differences in our individual cultures, languages, preferences, and traditions"--
Contemporary East Asia and the Confucian Revival( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The so-called Confucian revival which came to prominence at the end of the twentieth-century, and which is manifested in the philosophical stream of Modern Confucianism, is one of the most significant elements within new Asian modernisation ideologies. By providing new insights into the culturally conditioned structure of Asian societies, this book contributes to the improvement of political, economic and cultural relations between "Western" and East Asian countries. Most classical Western modernisation theories have assumed that Confucianism would have to be abandoned if East Asia wanted to develop a dynamic, modern society, claiming that traditional Chinese culture was impervious or even inimical to modernisation. Max Weber's well-known thesis that the Protestant ethic was an essential factor in the rise and spread of modernisation represents a sharp contrast to the notion which has gradually emerged over the last two decades in East Asia, and which argues that societies based upon Confucian ethics may, in many ways, be superior to the West in achieving industrialization, affluence and modernisation. In order to examine whether the abovementioned Eurocentric views of modernity are still applicable, this book uses the presumption that modernisation represents a complex process of social transitions which include both universal and culturally conditioned elements as a starting point for its analysis

Rikša by She Lao( Book )

2 editions published between 1994 and 2000 in Slovenian and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Roman Rikša kitajskega avtorja Lao Shea o življenju preprostega moža v boju s skorumpirano družbo predstavlja eno najpomembnejših del novejše kitajske književnosti. Zgodba se dogaja v zgodnjih tridesetih letih prejšnjega stoletja. Glavni akter je Xiangzi, kuli, ki je v življenju že vnaprej obsojen na propad, čeprav ga hrepenenje in želja po boljšem odločno ohranjata v družbi. Hrepeni po lastni rikši, ki mu predstavlja edinstveni in glavni cilj, simbol lastne in trdne neodvisnosti, v kar usmerja vsa svoja dejanja in čustva. Ves njegov svet se vrti le okoli lastne rikše, preračunava prihranke in naposled mu le uspe, da si jo z denarjem tudi kupi. Toda zlo ne počiva dolgo. Še ne po enem letu lastništva mu jo vojaki odvzamejo. Njegov svet se v trenutku sesuje. Le v čem je smisel trdega garanja, poštenosti in iskrenosti? Xiangzi spozna, da so vse vrednote, v katere je verjel, pravzaprav čisto ničvredne, brezupne in prazne. Njegova osebnost se zelo spremeni, postane ihtav, zloben in upornik v propadli ter kruti družbi. Bo preživel? Vrhunec pisateljevega umetniškega ustvarjanja, polnega pesimizma, vdaje, obupa in brezizhodnosti

Dnevnik nekega norca in druge zgodbe by Xun Lu( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in Slovenian and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lu Xunove kratke zgodbe na svojski način razkrivajo zgodovino Kitajske, njen družbeni ustroj in značajske posebnosti Kitajcev, utelešene v psihološko poglobljenem portretiranju junakov. V svojih kratkih zgodbah prikazuje zgodovino časa, v katerem surovost, trpljenje in pomanjkanje tareta brezbrižne množice. A upanje na boljšo prihodnost ostaja
