Appeared in Choice on 1986-09:
This book is the most comprehensive work on Han Yu in the West, a scholarly work of the first order. The relationship between Confucianism and Buddhism is always a point of interest to students of Oriental philosophies. Are there real affinities between the two? Is Confucianism no more than its popularly projected image (a collection of rules for human behavior and propriety and success)? What sort of evidence do we have? Han Yu, a principal figure in the history of Confucianism, is meticulously studied and shown indeed to have affinitive links to the great Buddhist belief in universal unity. Hartman treats interesting biographical details of Han Yu as he wrote and worked for fundamental Confucian reforms in the Chinese moral and political order of his times (768-824). He writes as one actually caught up in the political turmoils of the T'ang empire as decline was setting in. Many Han Yu literary productions are given in translation. Deserves the attention of all those genuinely interested in Chinese thought; appropriate for graduate students and faculty.-B.S. Llamzon, Loyola University of Chicago
