Abstract

the systematic, scholarly study of chinese religion (excepting Buddhism) is in its infancy. Much of what has been written in the West in the past has been colored by attempts to find parallels between Chinese and Christian traditions. Christian apologists, often ill informed and rarely objective, arrived at rash conclusions regarding the religious elements of the Chinese.1 Largely unappreciated by these early Western scholars were the many facets of Chinese religious thought and feeling, as expressed in social, political, and economic organizations as well as in philosophical systems.2
