Metaphorical Metaphysics in Chinese Philosophy : Illustrated with Feng Youlan's New Metaphysics Hardback
by Derong Chen
In Metaphorical Metaphysics in Chinese Philosophy: Illustrated with Feng Youlan's New Metaphysics, Derong Chen explores Chinese philosophy through a comprehensive study and critical analysis of Feng Youlan's new metaphysics, proposing a systematic analysis of meaning that differs from the approach of the comparative linguistic analysis that A.C.
Graham and Chad Hasen employed in their studies of Chinese philosophy.
This detailed analysis of Feng Youlan's new metaphysics demonstrates that Feng's system is not the completely Westernized philosophical system many scholars identify it as, nor is it the pure logical and analytical system Feng himself intended to construct.
Rather, the essence and characteristics of the new metaphysics at the core of Feng's philosophical system expose his philosophy as a continuation of the Chinese philosophical tradition in a new era.
This approach is most applicable to scholars of comparative philosophy and of any era of Chinese philosophy.
