Glossary.

Index.

"This 'showcase' for modern Chinese philosophy will finally dispel the common western perception that nothing has happened in Chinese philosophy since the sixteenth century other than the emergence of a regimented, monochromatic Marxism. In this immaculately edited volume, its mainly Chinese contributors testify to the immense variety of contemporary Chinese philosophy and to the willingness of its leading figures to enrich their own traditions through critical dialogue with western ones. The volume deserves to inspire a reciprocal willingness among western philosophers." David E. Cooper, Durham University <!--end-->

"An excellent anthology of essays introducing sixteen important Chinese philosophers in the twentieth century. The editors also provide a valuable background and overview, recent overseas trends, and a unifying interpretation of Chinese philosophy. 'Must' reading for serious students and scholars interested in Chinese philosophy" Antonio S. Cua, Catholic University of America

"Contemporary Chinese Philosophy constitutes a valuable contribution to the Western understanding of Chinese philosophy in conveying with clarity the diversity of the Chinese intellectual response to the encounter with Western thought." Practical Philosophy, Vol. 6, Autumn 2003
