From Modernity to Sustainability

(p.133) 7 From Modernity to Sustainability
China's Green Religion

James Miller

Columbia University Press

Modernity tends to frame religion as private spirituality and nature as objective materiality, each divorced from the other. Sinological scholarship on Daoism has tended to work within this framework and as a result has produced understandings of Daoism based on the categories of religion, philosophy, nature and culture that are external to the tradition itself. An alternative to the ordering framework of modern scholarship on China and Chinese religions is scholarship produced from a paradigm of sustainability.
