Islamic Thought in China

Sino-Muslim Intellectual Evolution from the 17th to the 21st Century

Edited by Jonathan Lipman

Published by Edinburgh University Press

This collection examines the intellectual heritage of Islam in China over nearly four centuries, based on primary sources and contemporary interdisciplinary scholarship. Clarifying issues in the translation of exogenous traditions into Chinese, it opens new possibilities for comparison with Buddhism, Christianity, Judaism, Marxism, liberalism and more. The chapters progress chronologically and interlock thematically, helping the reader to a coherent understanding of the intellectual issues at stake as its subjects present Islam as a civilised Dao in the Chinese context.
