The period of Sung (960–1278 A.D.) has been called the golden age of Chinese Philosophy. It was a time when the nation suffered from the military invasions of her northern neighbours. But at the same time her arts and learning, especially philosophy, soared to a height rarely seen in Chinese history. Indeed, as Prof. Ch’en Yin-k’o has put it, the birth of Sung Neo-Confucianism was the one event for which 1200 years of the history of Chinese thought had been a preparation.
