Angle, S.C.
Sagehood. The Contemporary Significance of Neo-Confucian Philosophy
Neo-Confucianism is the sophisticated revival of Confucian theorizing, responding to challenges from Buddhism and Daoism, which began around 1000 C.E. and came to dominate the Chinese intellectual scene for centuries thereafter. What would happen if we took Neo-Confucianism and its central ideal of sagehood seriously as contemporary philosophy? Sagehood represents supreme human virtue: a flawless, empathetic responsiveness to every situation in which one finds oneself. How could this be possible? How might one work toward such a state? According to Neo-Confucians, we should all strive to become sages, whether or not we ultimately achieve it. Taking neo-Confucianism seriously means to explore the ways that its theories of psychology, ethics, education, and politics engage with the views of contemporary philosophers. Angle's book is therefore both an exposition of Neo-Confucian philosophy and a sustained dialogue with many leading Western thinkers--and especially with those philosophers leading the current renewal of interest in virtue ethics. The book's significance is two-fold: it argues for a new stage in the development of contemporary Confucian philosophy, and it demonstrates the value to Western philosophers of engaging with the Neo-Confucian tradition.

Confucius, Kristofer Schipper (vert.)
Confucius. De gesprekken, gevolgd door Het leven van Confucius door Sima Qian (ca 145-86 v. Chr)
Confucius (551-479 v.Chr.) is naast Lao Zi (604-507 v.Chr.?) de beroemdste filosoof van China. Hij is de grondlegger van de humanistische levensbeschouwing die dit land door de eeuwen heen heeft gekenmerkt. De gesprekken (Lunyu) zijn niet alleen de fundamentele, maar ook de meest toegankelijke bron van zijn denken.

Confucianisme en taoisme zijn tegengesteld maar vullen elkaar ook aan. In de geschriften van Lao Zi en Zhuang Zi is er een voortdurende dialoog gaande met Confucius en zijn school. Beide denkrichtingen zijn bepalend voor de Chinese cultuur in het algemeen.

Daarbij komt dat het confucianisme opnieuw zeer actueel is geworden. Gedurende de grote omwentelingen van de twintigste eeuw is weliswaar herhaaldelijk getracht aan deze levensbeschouwing een einde te maken en haar zelfs uit te roeien, maar dat bleek onmogelijk te zijn. Zij is veel te diep in de Chinese beschaving geworteld om zomaar te worden tenietgedaan. Sinds een aantal jaren wordt Confucius en zijn school overal weer in ere hersteld en heroveren zij geleidelijk aan de belangrijke positie van weleer. Voor wie de huidige ontwikkelingen in China wil begrijpen, is vertrouwdheid met deze grote culturele traditie een vereiste.

Vandaar de noodzaak om nu De gesprekken van Confucius toegankelijk te maken. Kristofer Schipper geeft hier de eerste volledige, rechtstreeks uit het klassiek Chinees gemaakte, Nederlandse vertaling van dit werk en voorziet het van een op de oude exegetische literatuur berustende toelichting. Een vertaling van de nauw met De gesprekken verbonden biografie van Confucius door China's grootste historicus, Sima Qian (ca. 145-87 v.Chr.), is eveneens toegevoegd.

Zarathustra and Zoroastrianism
This book, first published in German in 2005, offers a compact, concise and accessible survey of Zoroastrianism. This tiny religious community traces its root to Zarathustra who lived some 2,500-3,500 years ago. Chapters address Zarathustra and the origins of the religion, religious concepts and narratives, ethics and gender, priesthoods and rituals, transitions and festivals. A postscript by Anders Hultgard, one of the leading experts on this field, discusses the influences of Zoroastrianism on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Yoga in Practice
Yoga is a body of practice that spans two millennia and transcends the boundaries of any single religion, geographic region, or teaching lineage. In fact, over the centuries there have been many "yogas" - yogas of battlefield warriors, of itinerant minstrels and beggars, of religious reformers, and of course, the yogas of mind and body so popular today. "Yoga in Practice" is an anthology of primary texts drawn from the diverse yoga traditions of India, greater Asia, and the West. This one-of-a-kind sourcebook features elegant translations of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain, and even Islamic yogic writings, many of them being made available in English for the very first time. Collected here are ancient, colonial, and modern texts reflecting a broad range of genres, from an early medical treatise in Sanskrit to Upanishadic verses on sacred sounds; from a Tibetan catechetical dialogue to funerary and devotional songs still sung in India today; and, from a 1930s instructional guide by the grandfather of contemporary yoga to the private papers of a pioneer of tantric yoga in America. Emphasizing the lived experiences to be found in the many worlds of yoga, "Yoga in Practice" includes David Gordon White's informative general introduction as well as concise introductions to each reading by the book's contributors.
