Confucian Moral Self Cultivation by Philip J. Ivanhoe

Book Description

A concise and accessible introduction to the evolution of the concept of moral self-cultivation in the Chinese Confucian tradition, this volume begins with an explanation of the pre-philosophical development of ideas central to this concept, followed by an examination of the specific treatment of self cultivation in the philosophy of Kongzi ("Confucius"), Mengzi ("Mencius"), Xunzi, Zhu Xi, Wang Yangming, Yan Yuan and Dai Zhen. In addition to providing a survey of the views of some of the most influential Confucian thinkers on an issue of fundamental importance to the tradition, Ivanhoe also relates their concern with moral self-cultivation to a number of topics in the Western ethical tradition. Bibliography and index are included.

Three Streams by Philip J. Ivanhoe Three Streams, Hardback (November 2016)

Recent interest in Confucianism has a tendency to suffer from essentialism and idealism. This volume addresses this misconstrual and misrepresentation of Confucianism by presenting a philosophically critical account of different Confucian thinkers and schools, across place (China, Korea, and Japan) and time (the 10th to 19th centuries).

Reception and Rendition of Freud in China by Philip J. Ivanhoe Reception and Rendition of Freud in China, Hardback (September 2012)

This text explores the history, reception, and use of Freud and his theories in China, and makes an original and substantial contribution to our understanding of the Chinese people and their culture as well as to our appreciation of western attempts to understand the people and culture of China.

Master Sun's Art of War by Philip J. Ivanhoe Master Sun's Art of War, Paperback (March 2011)

P J Ivanhoe is one of the English-speaking world's foremost translators and interpreters of classical Chinese philosophical texts. His translation of the "Sunzi Bingfa" reads beautifully, adorned only by sobering photographic plates of the famed terracotta army of the first Qin emperor that turn one back to the text in a properly reflective mood.
