Studies of the reaction of European thinkers of the Enlightenment Leibniz, Wolff, Hegel, Kant, et al to Chinese culture and ideas.From the late sixteenth century on, with the sending of Jesuit missionaries to China, the West had the fortune of receiving first-hand reports about China from educated persons trained in the philosophy and sciences of the day. What these men said and wrote stirred some leading minds in Europe, among them Leibniz, Wolff and Kant. The essays in this volume, studies of what Western thinkers in the Enlightenment said and wrote about China, are important for everyone interested in East-West intellectual exchanges, for the ideas and prejudices of the shapers of the Western mind continue to the present day to influence Western relations with China.
