Reviews 517 modern China, especially in departments of philosophy that today almost universally cater to analytic philosophy. Despite some minor caveats, Joachim Kurtz's book is a major contribution and should be positively evaluated. He is a very promising scholar working on many important issues in Sino-Western cultural history and someone from whom we can expect even greater things. If he can be persuaded to think more boldly, then his accounts in future projects might well become a tour de force for explaining intellectual change during the transition from late imperial to modern China.
