From the reviews:
"This volume can be regarded as the latest contribution in a series of works that attempt to explore an original path towards modernity. This approach, rooted in the fields of bioethics, is said to be nursed by sources of East Asian traditions and to respond to the characteristics of the different societies in the region. ... For a European observer, this book provides a welcome opportunity to discuss the achievements of this school in some detail." (Ole Döring, East Asian Science, Technology, and Medicine, Vol. 25, 2007)
