In East and West: Fusion of Horizons, Kwang-Sae Lee seeks
to find and develop themes of mutual resonance in Eastern
and Western thoughts, trying to interpret across boundaries
of culture and age.
The book discusses some general “methodological problems”
pertaining to the “Meeting of East and West,”
Confucianism and Kantian moral philosophy, Heidegger, Wittgenstein
and Eastern thought, and outstanding themes such as social
practice theory, holistic individualism and pluralism. It
also examines Eastern thought (Confucianism and Taoism in
particular) and pragmatism (Rorty in particular). The last
part introduces Korean philosophy and some important Korean
Lee believes that there is vital need for reassessing the
eminent relevance of revitalized East Asian culture(s) to
the contemporary world. It is with this conviction that he
has written this important and timely book.
