    Project Details


    The Project aims to change the way we understand China's modern intellectual history. The influence and legacy of Indian thought have been ignored in conventional accounts of China's modern intellectual history. The Project will demonstrate how an Indian philosophical system has shaped the trajectory of modern Chinese thought, informed Chinese responses to the challenges of modernity, and show how its legacy continues to function as an intellectual resource in Chinese philosophy and in cultural nationalist discourse. The significance of the Project lies in the contributions its outcomes will make to the knowledge bases of Chinese intellectual history, Chinese philosophy and Buddhist Studies. The Project will produce three edited volumes
