The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy and Gender

Full Product Description

Covering the historical, social, political, and cultural contexts, " The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy and Gender" presents a comprehensive overview of the complexity of gender disparity in Chinese thought and culture.Divided into four main sections, an international group of experts in Chinese Studies write on Confucian, Daoist and Buddhist approaches to gender relations. Each section includes a general introduction, a set of authoritative articles written by leading scholars and comprehensive bibliographies, designed to provide the non-specialist with a practical and broad overview. Beginning with the Ancient and Medieval period before moving on to Modern and Contemporary approaches, specially commissioned chapters include Pre-Qin canonical texts, women in early Chinese ethics, the yin-yang gender dynamic and the Buddhist understanding of the conception of gender. Considering why the philosophy of women and gender dynamics in Chinese thought is rarely confronted, "The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy and Gender "is a pioneering cross-disciplinary introduction to Chinese philosophy's intersection with gender studies.By bridging the fields of Chinese philosophy, religion, intellectual history, feminism, and gender studies, this cutting-edge volume fills a great need in the current literature on Chinese philosophy and provides student and scholars with an invaluable research resource to a growing field.

The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy and Gender by White Ann Pang was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in April 2016. The ISBN for The Bloomsbury Research Handbook of Chinese Philosophy and Gender is 9781472569851.
