The Reception of Kant in Modern China Abstract:

The present examination of the Chinese reception of Kant should be considered as a part of an effort in understanding the nature of China’s modernization from the perspective of the history of thought.
After giving a historical account organized by four stages (the early reception 1900s-1930s, the New-Confucian reception 1940s and afterwards in Taiwan, the Marxist reception 1950s-1970s, and the liberal reception 1980s onwards), I will try to draw some reflections on what accounts for the spontaneity that China has exhibited in her reception of Kantian, and Western thought in general.
