Carmen Meinert (ed.)

Traces of Humanism in China

Tradition and Modernity

Since discourses on humanistic traditions have so far largely been focused on European cultures, this volume attempts to open the field to counterparts within Chinese culture which, as a matter of fact, has a rich autochthonous tradition of humanism as well. The contributors explore Confucian and Daoist dimensions of humaneness in Chinese philosophy and history up to the first half of the 20th century, when Chinese and Western concepts of humanism first merged.
This book addresses a non-sinological audience as well as specialists in this field and contributes to a non-eurocentric view on humanism history.


Carmen Meinert (Dr. phil.), sinologist and tibetologist, currently works as a research fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities (KWI) in Essen (Germany) and teaches at the University of Bochum. Her field of research includes Chinese and Tibetan intellectual and religious history and Buddhist studies.
