British literary critic, theorist of literature and education, in this original work, Richards aims to call attention to a fascinating field for exploration, Chinese modes of meaning, by comparison to which it is possible to clarify our contemporary methods of controlling meanings. After applying the results of this comparative discussion, this book presents the Chinese view of psychology based on the work of Mencius, a view that is relevant to the problem of the relationship of science to value. The contents include: Some Problems of Translation; Types of Utterance in Mencius; Mencius' View of the Mind; and Towards a Technique for Comparative Studies. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty, faded or difficult to read.
