Publication: David Chai, ed., Dao Companion to Xuanxue

Offers a comprehensive introduction to the principal figures of Neo-Daoism and their contributions

The 25 chapters of this work survey the major philosophical figures and arguments of Xuanxue, a movement from the Wei-Jin dynastic period (220-420 CE) of early-medieval China. It also examines texts and figures from the late-Han dynasty whose influence on Xuanxue has yet to be made explicitly clear. In order to fully capture the multifaceted nature of this movement, the contributors brilliantly highlight its more socially-oriented characteristics. See publisher's page for more details
