Fung Yu Lan gives an essential and satisfying account of the trends in Chinese thought 400 pages gets it done. The book is a systematic account of Chinese philosophy history To my view, Feng Youlan s A Short History of Chinese Philosophy is only matched by Russell s A History of Western Philosophy If there is anything other than philosophy that I learn from the book, it is that The Needham Puzzle Why the Industrial Revolution Did Not Originate in China isphilosophical than economical. Being brought up the occidental way and raised in a rather western adapted culture, I had a great time reading through the original oriental thought, which is actually the roots of my Asian race It is always enlightening to discover a treasure of ideas which we had taken for granted, never bothered to explore in detail I myself went through quite a number of philosophy classes but what got retained are the Western philosophies precisely because it is their application in the modern world th Being brought up the occidental way and raised in a rather western adapted culture, I had a great time reading through the original oriental thought, which is actually the roots of my Asian race It is always enlightening to discover a treasure of ideas which we had taken for granted, never bothered to explore in detail I myself went through quite a number of philosophy classes but what got retained are the Western philosophies precisely because it is their application in the modern world the generation we belong to that we breathe in and witness But the ancient Chinese philosophies do have a golden chest of ideologies that, given a choice, I would definitely prefer to live by Anyway, life is given How you live it is your choice In the end what matters is The Dash between the two dates written on our tombstone N.B You might want some inspiration from Linda Ellis Live Your Dash Make Every Moment Matter the book consists of short chapter summaries that describe the outlines of different schools of Chinese thought I personally would have wished fordepth for the Confucianist chapters and less about esoteric mumbo jumbo Taoist metaphysics I found a good deal of information I haven t come across before and I especially enjoyed learning about the School of Names and Neo Confucianism The author does a good job showing how the different schools have influenced each other over time and how the the book consists of short chapter summaries that describe the outlines of different schools of Chinese thought I personally would have wished fordepth for the Confucianist chapters and less about esoteric mumbo jumbo Taoist metaphysics I found a good deal of information I haven t come across before and I especially enjoyed learning about the School of Names and Neo Confucianism The author does a good job showing how the different schools have influenced each other over time and how the mainstream philosophy of each age changes depending on social circumstances confucian, legalist, Mohists, taoists, pure conversation, etc At times it feels like the classical schools of thought had some solid ideas and the rest of chinese philosophy just runs in circles around those ideas This book made me freeze in writing reviews that I neglected them for a year.Right off the bat I must confess I rank this as one of the most treasured reads I have encountered, and Feng Youlan is there among the likes of Hume, Kant, Nietzsche.And I do make a claim here to have been as objective and bias free as possible in my reading.Of course, one may argue that Feng never formulated his own theories, own School of Thought but his broad understanding of Western AND Eastern Philosophies is incr This book made me freeze in writing reviews that I neglected them for a year.Right off the bat I must confess I rank this as one of the most treasured reads I have encountered, and Feng Youlan is there among the likes of Hume, Kant, Nietzsche.And I do make a claim here to have been as objective and bias free as possible in my reading.Of course, one may argue that Feng never formulated his own theories, own School of Thought but his broad understanding of Western AND Eastern Philosophies is incredible.For someone who thinks he understands the basics of Mohism and Confucianism, this book was both humbling and enlightening to me Feng addressed age old questions like why is Eastern philosophyconcerned about The Role of Man ahem person in The Universe ahem Society than about epistemological topics like Science The closest they came was captured in Legalism, an unpopular School since the Qin Dynasty ended.This book cannot be given its due praise from this reviewer, who is off to hunt for the UN abridged version The History Of Chinese Philosophy which is essentially out of print A very good introduction to Chinese philosophy.I ve read both Chinese and English versions of this book. Very interesting perspective into the mindset of the Chinese and how their philosophy contrasts against western philosophy It functioned as a great companion for my examination. &FREE ↞ A Short History of Chinese Philosophy ⇹ The classic chronicle of Chinese philosophical thought from the third millennium to the th centuryFrom the sage kings of ancient China to theoverthrow of the oldest monarchical system in the world, Chinese philosophy has evolved and influenced schools of thought around the world In an accessible voice, A Short History of Chinese Philosophy clearly illuminates Confucianism, Taoism, Mohism, Yin Yang, and For those interested in philosophy or Asian studies, this is the perfect window into ancient and modern Chinese ideology ,, ,400 ,, M nh th ch tri t nh ng t tr c n gi m i ti p x c v i quan i m tri t h c ph ng T y l ch nh V v th y l cu n u ti n c h th ng h a v tri t h c Trung Qu c m nh c c M nh c b n d ch ti ng Vi t, v s ch ch c h n 200tr, nh ng c l m r t chi ti t v li n m ch Ng i d ch L Anh Minh ghi ch c c k c n th n, c l c ph n ghi ch c n chi m h t to n trang V i ng i m i ti p x c v i Tri t h c Trung Hoa, m nh th y c c t t ng c a t ng th i c vi t theo tr nh t th i gian gi M nh th ch tri t nh ng t tr c n gi m i ti p x c v i quan i m tri t h c ph ng T y l ch nh V v th y l cu n u ti n c h th ng h a v tri t h c Trung Qu c m nh c c M nh c b n d ch ti ng Vi t, v s ch ch c h n 200tr, nh ng c l m r t chi ti t v li n m ch Ng i d ch L Anh Minh ghi ch c c k c n th n, c l c ph n ghi ch c n chi m h t to n trang V i ng i m i ti p x c v i Tri t h c Trung Hoa, m nh th y c c t t ng c a t ng th i c vi t theo tr nh t th i gian gi p ng i c d n m b t.Th m n a, nh quy n n y m m nh c bi t n kh i ni m Ng i Trung Dung , v h nh t ng nh n v n n y theo m nh r t ng h c h i th m M t quy n s ch th v C n m t t t ng kh c bao tr m, m c i n y c l m nh c ng h i bias l d n t c ph ng ng C C K coi tr ng quan h gia nh v t nh tr c gi c cao, ng c l i so v i nh ng g m nh hay c t tri t h c ph ng T y t nh c nh n, nghi ng , v logic lu n hi n l n r n t
