Summary:
Mou Zongsan 牟宗三 (1909-1995) was the theoretical genius behind New Confucianism, a philosophical and cultural movement marking the revival of Ruxue in Asia and Northern America since the late 1970's. This book is the first thorough study in English of Mou’s multi-faceted and complex system. It examines the key influences of Xiong Shili 熊十力 (1885-1968), G. W. F. Hegel (1770-1831), and Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) on the Chinese thinker and presents his thought as a contemporary moral metaphysical recasting of the Lu-Wang Learning of the Mind using Mahāyāna Fo paradigms and Kantian terminology. The study also reveals the strong Han cultural nationalism entwined with Mou’s philosophical system and looks at how his thought has been received.
