Description


The cosmic map of the 21st century exhibits imbalance and disorder. On one end of the Eurasian continent, Europe faces a deep civilizational, philosophical, and spiritual crisis, its Logos rapidly dissipating in the whirl of Chaos alongside the breakdown of the modern Western world order. At the same time, on the other end of the continent, China is on an historic rise, posing with newfound relevance the perspectives of Sinitic civilization on world order. Can reorientations for the Western Logos be found in the heritage of Sinitic thought? Can revived European and Chinese traditions find common ground?
In this vast and intensive essay, Xantio Ansprandi pursues a "mazeway resynthesis" that puts Western and Eastern metaphysics into transformative dialogue. It emerges that Sinitic thinking, centered around the Ru tradition, encompasses a rich framework for not only reconfiguring lost and distorted dimensions of Western thought, but for reawakening the common, harmonious horizons of Eurasian civilizations. Drawing on a rigorous array of comparative mythography and linguistics, philosophical insights, and contemporary Sinological scholarship, the author reconstructs the axes of the Sinitic cosmos and identifies "gaps" and "lines of potentiality" vis- -vis Western thought. In the hermeneutic panorama of "Eurasian Universism", the Greek Logos meets the Chinese Li, thymos meets shen, and Martin Heidegger, Jacques Lacan, Ernesto de Martino and other thinkers meet Confucian sages to challenge Postmodernity with Aleksandr Dugin. Eurasian Universism: Sinitic Orientations for Rethinking the Western Logos is a meta-philosophical bridge between worlds in pursuit of realigning Heaven and Earth.
