Pedagogy and Environment in the Neo-Confucian Academies of Zhu Xi
In this book, Xin Conan-Wu presents a radically revisionist argument on Zhu Xi’s (1130–1200) Neo-Confucian philosophy of education. Via analyses of unfamiliar landscapes and the poems of the White-Deer Grotto Academy, Yuelu Academy, and Wuyi Retreat, Conan-Wu argues that when praxis speaks for orthodoxy, the eclipsed pedagogue casts a liberal light on the enshrined philosopher.

Neo-Confucian senses of the gaze and place engendered Zhu Xi’s natural pedagogy and mapped the environment of his academies. This book cross-examines the textual traces and their innate vision, the physical sites and their transhistorical milieux, the Eight Views and Nine Bends and their afterlives in China and Korea. It unfurls an academy education, mutually reinforced by classical learning and self-cultivation, and sustained by a lure of the Supreme Joy of Confucian sagehood.
