Editorial Reviews


In this far-reaching and nuanced work, Wen Haiming juxtaposes Chinese philosophy with the American traditions of pragmatic naturalism and process philosophy….this work is simultaneously a piece of critical scholarship and an original contribution to Chinese and comparative philosophy…. In short, the moment to inaugurate a "newborn Chinese philosophical narrative" has arrived (219). This book serves as both an invitation and a rich, suggestive beginning to that project. (Dao: A Journal Of Comparative Philosophy, (Published By Springe)

Haiming Wen has provided a lucid and perceptive discussion of the creative dimension of the Confucian tradition by correlating American pragmatism and Chinese thinking. The book is an outstanding contribuiton to comparative philosophy. (Jiyuan Yu, State University of New York at Buffalo)

The publication of Haiming Wen's new book, Confucian Pragmatism as the Art of Contextualizing Personal Experience and the World, is a major contribution to Confucian scholarship....the book brings an entirely fresh and promising new look to Confucian material.
