Lingnan Prism Symposium Series (3.2): “A Crisis, or a New Direction?: Reconsidering the Translation of Chinese Philosophy”
Prof. Sophie Ling-chia Wei will give a talk in a symposium, A Crisis or a New Direction: Reconsidering the Translation of Chinese Philosophy, held by Lingnan University. Her topic is, The Genesis of Dao Knowledge at the Beginning of Orientalism. This online symposium is to be held on 9-10 May, 2021, on past and contemporary attempts to tackle Chinese philosophy through translation in the Western world, from the Jesuit missionaries to present-day translators working in academia and beyond. Speakers will address the cultural impact of translated Chinese philosophical masterworks in the West in different historical periods, examining seminal texts of the Confucian, Buddhist and Daoist traditions.
