How do we know the other culture? How do such inquiries impact on our knowledge of our own culture? These questions lie at the heart of comparative intercultural studies. As a theoretical inquiry into how conceptual resources of cultures (such as explicit and implicit categories of thought) may pre-figure our perspectives, this book re-conceives and reorients comparative intercultural inquiry by arguing for the importance of an epistemological approach and for its potential to transform current critical paradigms, in contrast to approaches that emphasize primarily the political and the ethical. By critically engaging with and developing the insights of scholars and thinkers from both Anglo-American and Continental traditions, the book makes a significant meta-critical contribution to a rethinking of comparative intercultural studies and literary theory. It will be of interest to students and scholars in comparative literature, English, world literature, and global and translation studies.

About the Author:

Ming Xie is Associate Professor of English at the University of Toronto, Canada. He is the author of Ezra Pound and the Appropriation of Chinese Poetry (Routledge, 1999).

Review:

“[T]his book is of immense value and should find a home not only on the syllabuses of seminars devoted to intercultural inquiry but also in introductions to literary theory, where it could serve as a means of bringing intercultural inquiry into the central position within theoretical discussions that it should occupy by right and by necessity.” ―Alexander J. Beecroft, University of South Carolina
