摘要：Cities in China are extremely dynamic and experience high pressure to grow, transform and adapt. But in what directions, on what basis and to which goals? The author and his team have researched the intensive transformation processes of about hundred neighbourhood communities in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Suzhou, ranging from inner-city to peripheral areas, starting from planning and ending with user satisfaction studies.
摘要："This book explores the interaction between Taoism and Buddhism through a reading of the Chuang-tzu. Focusing on the commentary by the Taoist master Ch'eng Hsuan-ying (fl, 631-652), Shiyi Yu argues that, in competition with Buddhism, traditional Chinese thinking took a sharp turn in the early T'ang away from the influence of Taoist-minded philosophers in the Wei-Chin period.
Characterized by being concrete and unambiguous in approaching the issue of transcendence, Ch'eng Hsuan-ying's innovative reading of the Chuang-tzu led to a new emphasis on experience and knowledge. In both these respects, his reading has not only transformed the Chuang-tzu as constructed by previous readers, but also convincingly defended medieval Taoism as a set of practical beliefs that also were grounded in the metaphysics of the time."--Jacket.
