Description: Recent studies of Eastern thought often demand that any understanding of the east be seen through the discourse of "orientalism". Voltaire claimed that the East is the civilization "to which the West owes everything", yet Pierce was contemptuous of the "monstrous mysticism of the East". Despite the current trend toward globalization, Oriental Enlightenment shows there is still a reluctance to accept that the West could have borrowed anything of significance from the East.

Oriental Enlightenment challenges this Eurocentric prejudice. J.J. Clarke examines the role played by the ideas of Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism in the intellectual life of the West and how these ideas, far more than exotic distraction, have been instruments for serious self-questioning and self-renewal, used to dispute and even to undermine Western orthodoxies.
-- Scrutinizes prevailing views of the relationship between Orientalism and Western imperial hegemony
