The Buddhist Roots of Neo-Confucian Philosophy

    Project: Research

    Project Details


    This project will show how a non-Chinese tradition of philosophy fundamentally influenced the development of traditional Chinese philosophy. It will do this by examining the case of the Buddhist impact on the development of the revival of Confucian thought in the Song dynasty. The outcomes will transform our understanding of how philosophy was constructed in traditional China and show how this impacts on the interpretation of Chinese philosophy today.
