The search for knowledge has been the driving force behind mankind’s existence since the dawn of civilization, and different cultures have developed their own theories of knowledge. Searching for the Way: Theory of Knowledge in Premodern and Modern China deals with the analyses and interpretations of modern Chinese philosophical discourses, especially those concerning theories of knowledge. The author looks at how contemporary Chinese philosophy is awakening from a long slumber and substantiates the hypothesis that this new awakening is fully prepared for fruitful confrontations with the new challenges presented by a globalized world. The study of 20th-century Chinese philosophy has not been the subject of any extensive and systematic discussion in neither the West in general nor in Western Sinology in particular. Hence, this book will be of immense interest to those who are interested in the emerging fields of comparative philosophy, Chinese studies and theology.

Jana S. Rošker is Professor of Sinology at Ljubljana University, Slovenia. Her research interests include Chinese Studies, Chinese Philosophy, Chinese Epistemology and Methodology of Intercultural Research.
