Thinking Through China

Thinking Through China

What is it that makes China recognizable as the longest surviving civilization in the world? This is a book that singles out those distinctive ways of seeing the world that constitute what we might call a cultural ecology of China. It does so by tracking those interlocking presumptions that sustain a viable worldview for the great majority of China s people. As such, it is a book for Western readers who feel the need to understand something more basic about China than (more) information about it. Some of its readers may be those seeking to engage with China through business or teaching or travel. A larger number, we believe, would be seeking to understand a China that is now an inescapable influence on their world. For all such readers, an account of China on its own terms seems the most reliable way to allow them access to what might otherwise seem a thoroughly alien way of life."
