              This book offers the first introduction to a major Japanese philosophical movement through the interests and arguments of its founder, Nishida Kitaro (1870-1945), his successor, Tanabe Hajime (1885-1962), and student-turned-critic, Tosaka Jun (1900-1945). Focusing on their contri...butions to thinking about place, space, and dialectics, this concise introduction brings these influential thinkers to life by connecting their work to issues still debated in the philosophy of science and physics today. Beginning with an overview of the reception of quantum physics and relativity theory in Japan and concluding with an account of the direct relevance of the Kyoto School to the development of world philosophy in a posthuman age, each clearly-written chapter engages historical contexts and includes: - Carefully-chosen excerpts and original translations of Nishida, Tanabe, and Tosaka - Focus boxes explaining complex concepts and problems of contextualization - Glossaries for each chapter - Further reading lists featuring relevant and significant articles and books in English This introduction is an ideal starting point for students and lecturers looking to become better acquainted with three central Japanese philosophers and learn why their work impacts our current thinking about science.

              Daya Krishna (1924-2007) was one of the most creative philosophers of the second half of the 20th century.

Drawing on the work of a number of contemporary Indian philosophers, including Krishnachandra Bhattacharyya, J.N. Mohanty, Ramchandra Gandhi, Mukund Lath, Yashdev Shalya, and Arindam Chakrabarti, each section in this book begins with an introductory preface to a key text, explaining the significance of it within Krishna's philosophical corpus.

              Traditions throughout the world and across history have tackled fundamental questions about the human condition. This one-of-a-kind guide shows how these different philosophies can be effectively studied together. Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach's and Leah Kalmanson's introduction mar...ks a break from conventional approaches. Instead of assuming philosophy has always operated with a single, easily identifiable conceptual framework across space and time, which we call-and have always called-philosophy, they attest to the plurality of concepts and methods adopted at different times and places. The book serves as a practical teaching guide to the theoretical and methodological diversification of philosophy as practiced in academia today. Complementing the Bloomsbury Introductions to World Philosophies series, it covers a variety of traditions featured in the book series, exploring how Anglo-American, Chinese, Indian, African, Islamic and Maori thinkers have all addressed fundamental questions such as: - How do we understand ourselves and our relations to others? - How do we understand our world? - How do we seek knowledge, share knowledge, and, importantly, intervene in the norms of received knowledge when needed? Featuring teaching notes, discussion questions, and a list of further reading, this is a book packed with the background, guidance, and tools required to teach different philosophies. Through it we come to see why making room for different conceptual frameworks improves our understanding of ourselves and the worlds we live in.

              This guide introduces the work of one of China's most creative philosophers, Li Zehou. Without assuming any prior knowledge, it covers the key components of Li's broader philosophical vision providing an explanation of his influences, his philosophical innovations, and the critic...al reception of his work in both China and the West. Each chapter focuses on a central idea characterizing Li's work, from his debt to Marx in his construction of Chinese cultural identity theory and his discussion of the Book of Changes to his work on yin-yang theory, pragmatic reasoning and account of the historical evolution of conceptions of beauty. Together with a comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading, each chapter includes a list of questions to guide classroom discussions. By making helpful and informative connections to more familiar thinkers and topics from American pragmatism and contemporary aesthetics, Li Zehou and Twentieth-Century Chinese Philosophy benefits anyone interested in understanding more about contemporary Chinese thought.
