Reviews

“What is now emerging, through a handful of works such as this, is the basis for genuine re-appraisal of Chinese intellectual and social traditions, allowing us to understand the most basic and important of all pedagogical issues- the nature of the relationship between teacher and student, and the means of interpreting the kind of exchange evident in my decades-old recollection.” – Dr. Trevor Hay, University of Melbourne
