Item description for Love and Emotions in Traditional Chinese Literature (Sinica Leidensia) by Halvor Eifring, Vaclav Repa, Karel Richta, Wita Wojtkowski, Henry Linger, David Bromwich & David Mungello...
Do all cultures and historical periods have a concept corresponding to the English word emotion? This collection of essays is concerned with the closest candidate within the Chinese language, namely the term qng. What is the meaning of this term in different periods and genres? What are the types of discourse in which it is typically found? This volume contains two essays on the notion of qng in classical sources, two on Chan Buddhist usage, and two on fiction and drama from the Ming and Qing dynasties. An introductory essay discusses the complex historical development of the term. Together, the essays may be read as a first step towards a conceptual history of one of the key terms in traditional Chinese culture.
