Littlejohn Publishes ‘Chinese Philosophy and Philosophers’

Bloomsbury Publishing, London, has announced the publication of Professor of Philosophy and Director of Asian Studies Dr. Ronnie Littlejohn’s new introduction to philosophy through Chinese thinkers, Chinese Philosophy and Philosophers.   

“Ronnie L. Littlejohn’s ability to constructively organize and discuss Chinese philosophy with categories and terms recognizable to undergraduate students while remaining faithful to original discourses is remarkable,” said Paul J. D’Ambrosio, associate professor of Chinese philosophy at East China Normal University in Shanghai, China. “This is perhaps the most nuanced introduction Western students can have to classical Chinese thought in a familiar philosophical framework. Any teacher dealing with these texts and ideas should seriously consider this work.” 

Professor of Philosophy at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Eric S. Nelson said, “This volume offers a lucid and comprehensive overview of the key historical periods and conceptual areas of Chinese philosophy from antiquity to modernity. It is an essential resource for engaging the history and contemporaneity of Chinese thought.”
