Article/Chapter Title:Man and Nature: East Asia and the West
Journal Title:Asian Profile
Author(s):Olson, Edward A
Date of Publication: 1975
Annotation:Trying to dispel popular notions of an ideal reality in East Asia, Olson discusses Confucian China and its relationship with the highly metaphysical Taoist tradition. He continues with China’s “offspring, ” Japan, where Taoist teachings found fertile ground in the spiritually attentive Shinto tradition only to give way with time to a more human-centered Confucian philosophy. Olson concludes by discussing the latest shift in human-nature attitudes found in post-war Japan.
