About this book


This book presents the syllabus of Hu Shih’s course on the History of Chinese Thought, which he taught at Harvard University from 1944 to 1945, and has been transcribed from his (more than 1500) hand-written notes. This book focuses on Hu Shih’s in-depth study and interpretation of Chinese intellectual history and philosophy, etc. It also distills the development of China’s long and complex intellectual history over the past 3,000 years into a clear and succinct outline. Transcribing, collating and publishing this valuable hand-written manuscript for the first time, the book represents a truly unique historical document.
