Davidson's Philosophy and Chinese Philosophy
This volume investigates how, through critical engagement, the philosophy of Donald Davidson in the Western analytic tradition and some thoughts and strands in Chinese philosophy can jointly contribute to the common philosophical enterprise and shows how such comparative methodology of constructive engagement is important or even indispensable in general philosophical inquiry. The anthology consists of 12 previously unpublished essays by experts in relevant areas of study, which are organized into five parts respectively on conceptual schemes and cross-cultural understanding, the principle of charity, rationality and normativity, meaning and interpretation, and truth concern and dao concern. The anthology also includes the volume editor’s theme introduction on how the constructive engagement of Davidson’s philosophy and Chinese philosophy is possible.
