Chinese philosophers, following the lead of Kongzi (Confucius) were much more concerned with the process of how to become good, as opposed to Western concerns of what is the good. Ranging in time from 551 B.C.E. to 1777 C.E., this study examines the similarities and differences between seven philosophers' approaches to the question. Separate chapters are devoted to Kongzi, Mengzi (Mencius), Xunzi, Zhu Xi, Wang Yangming, Yan Yuan, and Dai Zhen. Paper edition (unseen), $9.95.

Understanding China and the Chinese is of paramount importance in today's world. With China's rapid economic growth and increasing political influence, there has been significant interest in learning the Chinese language around the world. While we constantly hear about China in political and economic terms, we rarely come across a book that explains what Chinese culture or a Chinese person is like today.This book offers a critical overview of Chinese culture intended for college students as well as for general readers interested in the topic. While 'Chinese culture' is often deployed in terms of kung fu, Confucius or calligraphy, this book refers to the traditional and modern experiences out of which contemporary Chinese people have grown. Internationally renowned scholar in China Studies, Professor Qian Suoqiao invites readers to join him on an exciting intellectual journey to critically explore important issues including history, language, governmentality, self-cultivation, aesthetics of life, nationalism, cosmopolitanism, communism, the rise of China and her soft power which contribute to the formation of what we call 'Chinese'.

To those who invoke them, rights are powerful instruments for settling arguments in favour of the right-holders. But the nature, provenance and justification of rights are uncertain and disputed and there are doubts about whether rights should play a distinctive and fundamental role in moral and political discourse. More recent disgreements have centred on group rights and on whether rights have a universal application across different cultures and moral traditions. These and other related issues are explored in depth by the essays in this volume, which are mostly drawn from a wide range of journals in philosophy, politics and law.

Yao (Chinese religion and ethics, U. of Wales-Lampeter) analyzes the similarities and differences between Christianity as a theocentric religion and Confucianism as a humanistic tradition. The axis of his comparison links agape, which describes the relationship individual Christians have with their God and with other people, and jen, which describes the relationship individual Confucians have with their ideal and with other people.
