The True Meaning of The Daxue: Thorsten Pattberg on the Translation of Chinese Terms

A very interesting post by Thorsten Pattberg of Peking University (ok, ok 北京大学).

Thorsten's work brings his understanding of Chinese philosophy, literature and classical Chinese to inform contemporary efforts to better engage with and understand Chinese culture. He's definitely one of the more illuminating scholars writing on China today.
