One and Many
A Comparative Study of Plato's Philosophy and Daoism Represented by Ge Hong
By Jiayan Zhang
University of Hawai‘i Press
Is the world one or many? Ji Zhang revisits this ancient philosophical question from the modern perspective of comparative studies. His investigation stages an intellectual exchange between Plato, founder of the Academy, and Ge Hong, who systematized Daoist belief and praxis. Zhang not only captures the tension between rational Platonism and abstruse Daoism, but also creates a bridge between the two.
