Summary
"The Search for Modernity looks at the changing relationship between Chinese intellectuals and society, and examines the role of Chinese intellectuals in the turbulent process of modernization, comparing them to their Western counterparts. The Search for Modernity is an important attempt to understand the philosophical dilemmas and challenges facing Chinese intellectuals as they define the issues of modernity within a global context, their self-identity, and their role in an ever-changing Chinese society."--Jacket
