    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Much has been written on how temples are constructed or reconstructed for reviving local religious and communal life or for recycling tradition after the market reforms in China.

  • Confucianismby Paul R. Goldin

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    "Confucianism" presents the history and salient tenets of Confucian thought, and discusses its viability, from both a social and a philosophical point of view, in the modern world.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 34.95

    The twentieth century saw religion challenged by the rise of science and secularism, a confrontation which resulted in an astonishingly diverse range of philosophical views about religion and religious belief. Many of the major philosophers of the twentieth century - James, Bergson, Russell, Wittgenstein, Ayer, Heidegger, and Derrida - significantly... more...

  • Religion in Chinaby K. Hughes; E. R. Hughes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95

    First published in 1950. Beginning with ancient times, this volume shows how some of the early superstitions became purified through the influence of the Confucianist philosophy, how a deep strain of mysticism came from the Taoists and how thereby a worship of 'Heaven' and 'Earth' was evolved. Besides the main streams of Confucianism and Buddhism,... more...

  • The Tao of the Westby J.J. Clarke

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 45.95

    In this book, J.J. Clarke shows us how Taoist texts, ideas, and practices have been assimilated within a whole range of Western ideas and agendas.

  • Popular Religion in Chinaby Stephan Feuchtwang

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 73.95

    The institution of local festivals and temples is not as well known as that of ancestor worship, but it is just as much a universal fact of Chinese life. Its content is an imperial metaphor, which stands in relation to the rest of its participants' lives as the poetry of collective vision, theatrically performed, built and painted in temples, carved... more...
