Chinese and Western thinkers consider the Chinese philosophical tradition and Chinese philosophy for the contemporary global era.

This book treats Chinese philosophy today as a global project, presenting the work of both Chinese and Western philosophers. Providing contemporary considerations of the Chinese philosophical tradition and bringing Chinese philosophy into conversation with Western philosophy, Chinese Philosophy in an Era of Globalization provides a model for collaborative work. Topics covered include value theory, philosophy of religion, human nature, virtue ethics, epistemology, and philosophy of language.

Much can be learned from a reading of this text, much about contemporary Chinese philosophy and the state of Sino-Anglophone comparative philosophical discussions.  Journal of Chinese Religions
