Title: Admired by Scholars and Laymen Alike: Introducing Some Classics in Chinese Society
Professor Max K. W. Huang
Distinguished Research Fellow at the Institute of Modern History, Academia Sinica, Taiwan, R.O.C.

Abstract

We use the term “Classics” to indicate the books which serve as a standard of excellence and exert lasting influence. In Chinese society, there are numerous classics. They include Confucian, Daoist, and Buddhist works with philosophical values, as well as historical and literary works with beautiful words and intriguing plots. In this talk, I will introduce some Chinese classics with which I grew up with in Taiwan from the 1960s to 1980s. Special attention will be paid to those books available in English and Hungarian translations. I will introduce several representative philosophical works: the Analects, Lao zi and Buddhist sutras. As for historical and literary works, I will introduce The Records of the Grand Historian, Tang Poems, Best of Classical Prose, Journey to the West, the Dream of Red Chamber, and The Golden Lotus. How do Chinese people read these books? And how do these books influence Chinese people’s behavior and thought in modern times? These books are like a window, through which we can understand why Chinese culture has a long history and remains vital in modern times.
