9781626430044: Order and Revolt: Debating the Principles of Eastern and Western Social Thought

These original essays debate two ways of theorizing social life. One way is the integrative or holistic model of thought typified in the writings of Confucius. The other, the revolutionary tradition, is suspicious of holism and harmony as principles of social thought because harmony is seen as something that can genuinely occur only when a society has rectified deeply ingrained injustice. This volume evaluates the alternative priorities of order and revolt, harmony and spontaneity, in social life.

Review:

“Harmony and freedom are perennial subjects of philosophy, with particular significance for the contemporary world. Contributors in this volume have done a superb job in presenting a wide range of pertinent theories and perspectives from various Eastern and Western traditions. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to broaden horizons on these important subjects.”
