Husserl and Chinese Nationalism

I’ve been in Australia for a while, and therefore have fallen behind in my reading of the New Yorker (I only just last week read the one with the controversial cover).  But I just read <A href=http://www.newyorker.com/reporting/2008/07/28/080728fa_fact_osnos>an article</a> from the July 28 issue about growing nationalistic sentiment among educated Chinese youth, and was struck by the fact that the main person the article was discussing is a student at a university in China writing his dissertation on Husserl.  There’s also some discussion of the influence of Leo Strauss among the relevant group.  It made me wonder what sorts of connections there are between the relevant academic communities in China and the rest of the world.

    I don’t have a commenting account at TAR, but I thought I’d tell you that the Society of Christian Philosophers has done a fair amount of work building relationships with philosophers in China. You can read about one of their projects here: http://www.siu.edu/~scp/kretzmannlib.htm
