Welcome to the companion website for Zhu Xi: Selected Writings, edited by Philip J. Ivanhoe.
This volume is part of a new series of translations of Chinese philosophical texts, Oxford Chinese Thought, edited by Eric L. Hutton and Justin Tiwald. This series will provide English-speaking readers with access to a range of China’s most interesting and influential traditional philosophical writings.
While parts of Zhu Xi’s works are available in English, Zhu Xi: Selected Writings offers the first selection of Zhu’s writings across a broad spectrum of his core concerns that is designed to be attractive to students and scholars from a wide range of disciplines. It contains lightly annotated, accurate, and readable translations that represent much more of his work than is currently available and includes thoughtful introductions to the full range of his concerns.
This companion website provides, via a downloadable PDF compiled and edited by Eric L. Hutton, the original Chinese text for the passages translated in the volume.
