Book Title:Oriental Enlightenment: The Encounter between Asian and Western Thought
Author(s):Clarke, J. J
Publisher Name:Routledge
Place of Publication:London and New York
Date of Publication:1997
Annotation:Clarke draws on the hermeneutical philosophy of Hans-Georg Gadamer in order to understand relationships that exist between Western and Oriental intellectual traditions. He gives a historical account of their interactions and critically reflects, rethinks, and reconceptualizes their relationship with respect to contemporary theoretical debates. He addresses Said’s notion of orientalism, knowledge, and power as well as a variety of other issues such as relativism, interpreting and/or projecting across boundaries, racism, fascism, irrationalism, quietism, modernity, postmodernity, and postcolonialism.
