Product description


A lucid, accessible, and highly readable introduction to the world of Neo-Confucian philosophy. The authors succeed admirably in unpacking what the Neo-Confucian thinkers meant and not just surveying what they said, and in doing so Angle and Tiwald encourage the reader to engage with Neo-Confucian ideas.
John Makeham, Chair and Director, China Studies Research Centre, La Trobe University

This landmark work on Neo-Confucianism provides a tremendously helpful survey of the conceptual terrain that the thinkers in this tradition negotiated in their different ways and brings many more important thinkers onto the scene in dialogue with better-known figures such as the Cheng brothers, Zhu Xi and Wang Yangming.
David B. Wong, Beischer Professor of Philosophy, Duke University
