Abstract

Introduction This article is intended to provide an annotated survey of predominantly recent literature in Western languages on Chinese philosophy. It is meant as a guide to the study of Chinese philosophy for those who have not mastered the Chinese language. Attention has gone primarily to book publications and, moreover, to publications in English, French, and German. The important Russian contributions to the historiography of Chinese philosophy had to be left out--not to mention the massive literature on Chinese philosophy in Japanese and Chinese. This survey is dressed up as a short narrative about the history of Chinese philosophy, but it is not representative of Chinese philosophy as a whole, if only for the reason that publications about Chinese philosophy--secondary literature as well as translations--are not equally spread over the different periods, thinkers, and schools. Neither does it aim at completeness. The survey is ordered according © 1999 by University of Hawai`i Press Features to periods and topics, and attention goes mainly to recent debates and interpretations. A certain measure of arbitrariness in the selection was unavoidable. Many titles are mentioned in the text. The bibliographic details of these publications and references to others on the same topic
