Abstract

In Changing Referents: Learning Across Space and Time in China and the West, Leigh Jenco challenges the assumption that academic thinking should proceed through the use of Eurocentric categories and concepts by instead tracing and drawing upon their implication in histories of Chinese thought, with a particular emphasis upon the notion of ‘Western Learning’. Although Xinyu Li would have welcomed more reflection on the contribution made by women to Chinese modernity under the circumstances of ‘Western Learning’, this thought-provoking volume utilises precise translations to present a methodologically intriguing and highly readable argument.
