This book represents an ambitious attempt to remove the stumbling blocks that stand in the way of a dialogue between Chinese and world philosophy. Hansen's main goal is to present a unified theory of Classical Chinese thought. What makes his attempt very different from innumerable previous efforts is that he uses Daoism, not Confucianism, as the central and unifying principle.
the time is ripe for this sort of wide-ranging reappraisal ... the book will be a major factor in setting the tone and parameters of the debate ... for the next decade.
