  • A masterful introduction to traditional Chinese ways of thinking
  • A treatment of a highly pertinent topic to the future of China, and not only its past
  • A valuable resource for a deeper understanding of Chinese philosophy and religion

“In his capacious work Major Aspects of Chinese Religion and Philosophy - Dao of Inner Saint and Outer King Shan Chun does not only explore the innate relations between Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhism since their origins till its recent developments. By relating the three major traditions of Chinese philosophy he also attempts to concentrate the New-Confucianism on its unified origins and substantial implications by applying its inherent endeavour to relate and unite all spheres: these topics being the intimate relations between religion and philosophy, their inner and outer way (including the correlation between Confucian and Daoist legacies) as well as the unity between cosmos (heaven), country, state, society and family.”

Prof. Dr. Claudia Bickmann,

Professor of Philosophy, University of Cologne, Germany

 

“Masterful introduction to traditional Chinese ways of thinking, embodied in the “three teachings” of Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism.”

Albert Welter,

Professor of East Asian Religions, University of Winnipeg, Canada

 

“A valuable resource for those seeking a deeper understanding of Chinese philosophy and religion.”

Richard N. Stichler,

Professor of Philosophy, Alvernia University, USA

 

“This is a work that will satisfy both the curious non-specialist and the seasoned scholar in its treatment of a highly pertinent topic to the future of China, and not only its past.”

 Rosita Dellios

Associate Professor of International Relations, Bond University, Australia

“A very revealing view of how a learned, serious Chinese intellectual understands the diverse riches to be found in the Chinese tradition. Attempting to cover virtually all of the Chinese philosophical and religious traditions and relate them to Western ideas, willing to pursue normative conclusions and discuss their applicability to modern life.”

Lee H. Yearley,

Walter Y. Evans-Wentz Professor, Religious Studies, Stanford University
