Heaven and Earth Are Not Humane: The Problem of Evil in Classical Chinese Philosophy 天地無仁:中國古典哲學中惡的問題

Author:
Franklin Perkins

Publisher:
Indiana University Press

Publication Year:
2014

Abstract:
That bad things happen to good people was as true in early China as it is today. Franklin Perkins uses this observation as the thread by which to trace the effort by Chinese thinkers of the Warring States Period (c.475-221 BCE), a time of great conflict and division, to seek reconciliation between humankind and the world. Perkins provides rich new readings of classical Chinese texts and reflects on their significance for Western philosophical discourse.
