dynasty inn - The Philosophy
The Philosophy of Wu Ch'eng: A Neo-Confucian of the Yuan Dynasty (Indiana University Oriental Series)
The Philosophy of Wu Ch'eng: A Neo-Confucian of the Yuan Dynasty (Indiana University Oriental Series)
This first full-length study of the thought of Wu Ch’eng (1249-1333), who was the foremost classical scholar and philosopher during the century of Mongol rule in China, incorporates translations of his seminal essays on metaphysics, ethics, and the mind. Trained in the teachings of the Sung thinker Chu Hsi, who emphasized broad learning to understand moral principles, Wu's reflections on the Confucian tradition and his experiences in official position and as a private teacher led him toward moral introspection and the intuitionism of Chu's contemporary Lu Hsiang-shan. Wu believed that metaphysical discourse was limited by language, that only through experience could one assimilate moral truth to illuminate the mind. In synthesizing Sung Confucian ideas, Wu foreshadowed trends in Ming and Ch’ing thought. Ming thinkers who developed the philosophy of mind, such as Wang Yang-ming, endorsed Wu’s path to moral enlightenment, and Wu’s synthesis of scholarship and introspection, as well as his creative approach to learning and intellectual freedom, had an impact on thinkers well into the Ch'ing era.

The Warrior

Media Type: DVD

The Warrior combines gorgeous cinematography, complex historical politics, and joltingly bloody action sequences to create a sweeping historical spectacular. A squadron of Korean soldiers, sent to protect a diplomatic envoy to China, find themselves unmoored when the envoys are killed in clashes with Chinese and Mongol soldiers. Struggling to return home, they rescue a high-handed Chinese princess (Ziyi Zhang, House of Flying Daggers, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and decide that protecting her is their best chance to survive, and possibly improve Korean-Chinese relations as well. Unfortunately, the Mongols want her back, and the squadron find their numbers slowly diminishing as they fight their way to an isolated military outpost. Though there's a more realistic context for the action--The Warrior is based on a historical event and the characters are well-developed--the battle scenes deliver some visceral thrills; the violence is graphic (beheadings, arrows plunging into necks, limbs sliced off) but grippingly choreographed. An above-average action movie; however, it is highly recommended that viewers watch it with subtitles, as the dubbing is typically wretched. --Bret Fetzer
