Knowledge Painfully Acquired Paperback – October 26, 1995
"This edition of Irene Bloom's 1987 translation of the K'un-chih chi, 'a collection of reading notes and reflections on philosophy and history by Lo Ch'in-shun (1465-1547)'is a most welcome addition to Columbia's distinguished Neo-Confucian series." -- "JAAS"
From the Back Cover
A seminal work in Chinese intellectual history, this sixteenth-century book of reading notes and reflections on philosophy and history was written by Lo Ch'in-shun, one of the most refined and innovative philosophers of Ming China. In the centuries following its publication, the K'un-chih chi exerted considerable influence, not only in China but in Korea and Japan as well, and is seen as having opened the Neo-Confucian way to the modern world. In writing this work, Lo produced one of the most significant documents of Ming thought. In this precise translation, Irene Bloom has made it available to Western readers for the first time.
