About this title

Synopsis:

World problems are intercultural, requiring sensitivity to cultural integrity in order to resolve. Wu Kuang-ming (Ph.D., philosophy, Yale) has been grappling with cultural clashes at their boundary for half a century, insisting that we must first let Chinese thinking be Chinese, not Western, leading thereby to a truly fruitful China-West and West-China interculture. Wu has been proposing how to do so, in a dozen published volumes and beyond. This volume reports Wu's personal and academic journey on this matter, followed by fourteen international scholars' critical appreciations and Wu's grateful responses. Wu's analytical bibliography and the editor's index conclude this volume, the full content of which is itself world interculture in praxis.

Review:

"This volume is a much-deserved celebration of the prolific work of Wu Kuang-ming by some of our most distinguished scholars. It is delightful to see how each of these authors in their own unique ways has been liberated by Wu's serious playfulness. Indeed, inspired by the sometimes wild and always exhilarating imagination of Kuang-ming, it is an object lession in what it advocates most fervently: a kind of engagement, integration, and accommodation that optimizes the agreement and the differences among those of us whose paths have happily crossed with Kuang-ming along the way." -- Roger T. Ames

"Readers of this book are invited by the intellectual generosity of its editor to explore many fascinating and inspiring pages that allow us to see today's intercultural world through the person and thought of Wu Kuang-ming, who's life exemplifies par excellence the experience of encountering with many cultural others, an experience that all of us somehow share inevitably in this world of globalization. Wu gives us a profound and optimistic philosophical vision of this process of interculturality. This is indeed a very exciting and intriguing volume, exploring Wu's own thought with resonances from many eminent critical-minded scholars, and thereby constituting a splendor of flowers of mutually penetrating wisdoms, each with its own distinctive contribution." -- Vincent Shen
