Key concepts in Chinese philosophy by Dainian Zhang( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is both a useful introduction to Chinese philosophy and an invaluable reference tool for sinologists. Comments by important Chinese thinkers are arranged around sixty-four key concepts to illustrate their meaning and use through twenty-five centuries of Chinese philosophy. This unique guide was prepared by Zhang Dainian, one of China's most famous living philosophers." "Zhang reaches back to include concepts in use before the oracle bones (c. 1350-1100 B.C.) - what could be called a philosophical "prehistory." But the focus of the work is those concepts that gained currency in classical Chinese philosophy, especially those whose meanings are deeper and more difficult to grasp. Translated and edited by Edmund Ryden in consultation with the author, the book also includes helpful introductory commentary by Ryden for each section."--BOOK JACKET
Ancient Chinese thought, modern Chinese power by Xuetong Yan( Book )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rise of China could be the most important political development of the twenty-first century. What will China look like in the future? What should it look like?

A Confucian constitutional order : how China's ancient past can shape its political future by Qing Jiang( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As China continues to transform itself, many assume that the nation will eventually move beyond communism and adopt a Western-style democracy. But could China develop a unique form of government based on its own distinct traditions? Jiang Qing--China's most original, provocative, and controversial Confucian political thinker--says yes. In this book, he sets out a vision for a Confucian constitutional order that offers a compelling alternative to both the status quo in China and to a Western-style liberal democracy. A Confucian Constitutional Order is the most detailed and systematic
Tao te ching by Laozi( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The best-loved of all the classical books of China and the most universally popular, the Daodejing or Classic of the Way and Life-Force is a work that defies definition. It encapsulates the main tenets of Daoism, and upholds a way of being as well as a philosophy and a religion. The dominant image is of the Way, the mysterious path through the whole cosmos modelled on the great Silver River or Milky Way that traverses the heavens. A life-giving stream, the Way gives rise to all things and holds them in her motherly embrace. It enables the individual, and society as a whole, to harmonize the disparate demands of daily life and achieve a more profound level of understanding. This new translation draws on the latest archaeological finds and brings out the word play and poetry of the original. Simple commentary accompanies the text, and the introduction provides further historical and interpretative context."--Book cover
