Compiled by Zhou Zhiping, professor of East Asian Studies at Princeton University, this book contains 27 important English papers and speeches of Hu Shi from 1919 to 1962, including research and presentations of Chinese history, culture, philosophy, religion and Chinese and Western relations. The book not only discusses the historical evolution of philosophical thinking of great thinkers from Lao Zi to Han Fei in the history of ancient Chinese philosophy, but also presents an investigation and analysis of Mediaeval philosophy from the Han Dynasty to the Northern Song Dynasty (including Dong Zhongshu, Wang Chong, etc.), post-Tang to modern philosophy (including the impact and development of Indian philosophy, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, as well as idealist philosophy of Cheng Zhu and Lu Wang).
