(p.189) Conclusion
The Emotions in Early Chinese Philosophy

Curie Virág

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the main arguments of the book and sketches out further implications—historical, methodological, and philosophical. First, it highlights the fact that the mainstream account of emotions implies a model of self as a cognitive and practical agent. Second, it shows how the mainstream account invokes the idea of the human being as a universal category, alongside a vision of the cosmos as a coherent, intelligible realm. Finally, it argues that cognitive paradigm represented by the mainstream account offers an alternative to the dualistic categories that pervade modern thinking (subjective/objective; theory/practice; feeling/thinking).

Keywords:   models of the self, agency, things, mastery, idea of nature, empire, subjective, objective, human
