"East Asian modern and Western modernity" this book tells the story of the contemporary significance of Confucianism seems to have been a lot of people have said many times, so the book how much is the harp on the old tune. But I have no intention to blindly for the modern new Confucianism arrogance. This book is designed to compare the modernity of East Asia and the West from the perspective of culture. The central argument of the book is: East Asian and Western modernity represent two different modern mode under the background of globalization, and the difference between the main and the respective cultural tradition. Needless to say, this view is not the novelty. However, learned from the literature, in the study of different traditional culture how to influence modern pattern corresponding to the lack of in-depth analysis, system theory. I can't pretend to do so, but in this direction have made some attempts. The basic framework of this book is from the author's Doctoral Dissertation (Department of University of Toronto in 1997, social) evolved. During the thesis writing, the teacher Jaitlin (irving.m.zeitlin.zeitlin) and the other two steering committee member Qin Jiayi (Julia Ching) and Isajo (wsevolod w.isajiw) is benefited, hereby thank.
