This book studies one of the most important figures in modern Chinese intellectual history, China's greatest modern writer, Lu Xun (1881-1936). His trenchant criticisms of the China of his day still speak directly to what can be called, without hyperbole, the current crisis in philosophical and political thought in the People's Republic.

He is viewed paradoxically as both an official icon and as a patron saint of dissent.

Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "This is a very courageous interpretation of Lu Xun, the most important and influential literary and social critic of modern China. Pusey takes the reader through a careful reading and discussion of Lu Xun's works and scholarship about him to establish 'the real Lu Xun' in contrast to the one enshrined in official Chinese ideology since the mid-1930s. To establish Lu Xun's relationship to Darwinian thought, Pusey also analyzes not only the writings of Darwin but also such thinkers as Ernst Haeckel, Konrad Lorenz, Stephen Jay Gould, and Edward O. Wilson who have constructed various 'ethics' upon Darwinian assumptions. No one knows as much about Darwinism in China as Pusey and he puts it to good use here." -- Hoyt Cleveland Tillman, Arizona State University
