9789004185265: Concepts of Nature: A Chinese-European Cross-Cultural Perspective (Conceptual History and Chinese Linguistics)

This book, inspired by the sociologist Gunter Dux, co-edited by the historian Hans Ulrich Vogel, and introduced by Mark Elvin, is a collective intellectual masterpiece written by some of the world's leading scholars. Its purpose is to illuminate premodern Chinese ways of thinking about Nature by comparing them with their counterpart traditions in Europe. In so doing it also subtly reshapes our understanding of premodern European concepts of the natural world. The domains covered principally include philosophy, language, poetry, science, and mathematics, and their relations with society, technology, and politics. By analyzing the frequent partial similarities between these great two cultural areas in the context of their overall contrasts, it points the way for the first time to defining accurately the differences that have been critical for world history.

Review:

"Connecting social structures to intellectual cultures and practices and promoting comparisons that are methodologically sound, the overall contribution of this important and intellectually exciting book is to initiate a much needed research program that promises to move the discussion beyond the shrill polarized positions orchestrated by the Orientalists and the Occidentalists." ZAHEER BABER, University of Toronto, Canadian Journal of Sociology/Cahiers Canadiens de Sociologie, 37:1 (2012)
