In this illustrated introduction Wen Haiming explores the characteristics of different philosophers in Chinese history and distinguishes the 'Chinese philosophical sensibility' motivating their thoughts. Employing Western philosophical categories to describe significant issues in the history of philosophy, Wen Haiming considers Chinese political philosophy in the pre-Qin era, Chinese metaphysics from Han to Tang dynasties, Chinese epistemology from Song to Ming dynasties and modern Chinese-Western comparative philosophy. Chinese Philosophy provides a clear, accessible conception of the Chinese philosophical sensibility and its evolution throughout history.
Haiming Wen completed his doctoral studies in comparative philosophy at the University of Hawaii, taught as a postdoctoral fellow at Peking University and is now Associate Professor in the School of Philosophy at China Renmin University. He also teaches American CIEE/IE programs and is a member of the American Philosophical Association, the American Chinese Philosophical Association and the International Association for Chinese Philosophy. He has published widely in both Chinese and English, including the book Confucian Pragmatism as the Art of Contextualizing Personal Experience and the World.
