Description

In his classic study of the cultural history of Han China, Michael Loewe uses both archaeological discoveries and written records to sketch the conceptual background of various artefacts of the Han period, and shows how ancient Chinese thought is as much informed by mythology as it is dependent on reason. Originally published as Chinese Ideas of Life and Death: Faith, Myth and Reason in the Han Period (202BC-AD220), this edition includes a new Preface that discusses relevant discoveries made since the first publication and an updated list of other works on relevant topics.

Author Biography

Michael Loewe was University Lecturer in Chinese Studies, University of Cambridge, from 1963 to 1990. He is an Emeritus Fellow of Clare Hall.
