9789004137103: Love and Emotions in Traditional Chinese Literature (Sinica Leidensia)

Do all cultures and historical periods have a concept corresponding to the English word "emotion"? This collection of essays is concerned with the closest candidate within the Chinese language, namely the term "qing," What is the meaning of this term in different periods and genres? What are the types of discourse in which it is typically found? This volume contains two essays on the notion of "qing" in classical sources, two on Chan Buddhist usage, and two on fiction and drama from the Ming and Qing dynasties. An introductory essay discusses the complex historical development of the term. Together, the essays may be read as a first step towards a conceptual history of one of the key terms in traditional Chinese culture.
