The temptations of metaphysics : epistemological and metaphysical dimensions of Mou Zongsan's Critique of the cognitive mind

Journal Contribution - Journal Article

The Critique of the Cognitive Mind (Renshixin zhi pipan U+8A8DU+8B58U+5FC3U+4E4BU+6279U+5224) is part of a relatively early phase in Mou Zongsan's U+725FU+5B97U+4E09 (1909U+20131995) long and complex intellectual trajectory. The present article tries to think through the relation between knowledge (epistemology) and existence (ontology) in the Critique against the background of the later Mou's attempt to put forward a form of "moral metaphysics" (daode de xing'ershangxue U+9053U+5FB7U+7684U+5F62U+800CU+4E0AU+5B78) inspired by Kant's critical philosophy.
