Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The topic is significant and the essays provide even greater insights when combined with their first two volumes. In particular, the work is so clear that I would have no hesitation using this book as an undergraduate text in a variety of courses. I believe that if new students of Asian philosophy studied these volumes focusing on the concept of self, then they would have a superb start in approaching a great variety of literature representative of each tradition. Once the implicit concept of self is made explicit, a new world is opened to the new interpreter of Asian literature, history, architecture, philosophy, religion, and language." -- David Edward Shaner, Furman University.

Inhaltsangabe: This is the third in a series dealing with the concept of self and its importance in understanding Chinese, Japanese, and Indian cultures. The authors examine the relationship between self and image and its significance in attaining a deeper knowledge of Chinese, Japanese, and Indian cultures.
The relationship between self and image is as complex as it is fascinating. It takes on different meanings and significances in diverse cultures. In this volume, the focus of attention is largely on representational practices and symbolic media, such as literature, cinema, art, and dance. By examining both classical and contemporary works associated with China, India, and Japan, the authors seek, on the one hand, to demonstrate the intricate relationship between self and image and, on the other, to make use of that relationship to further our understanding of these cultures.
