Recovering Buddhism in Modern China

Erik J. Hammerstrom

Columbia University Press

Erik Hammerstrom’s chapter examines the participation of Buddhist intellectuals in the early 1920s “Science and Philosophy of Life” debates; he shows how Buddhist intellectuals adopted and promoted modern scientific taxonomies of knowledge and scientific empiricism in ways informed by their Buddhist thinking that subsequently tempered, complicated, expanded, and deepened the modern Chinese discourse on science even as they advanced it.

Keywords:   Chinese Buddhist intellectuals, “Science and Philosophy of Life” debates, Science, taxonomies of knowledge, empiricism
