Han Fei, who died in 233 BC, was one of the primary philosophers of China's classical era, a reputation still intact despite recent neglect. This edited volume on the thinker, his views on politics and philosophy, and the tensions of his relations with Confucianism (which he derided) is the first of its kind in English.

Featuring contributions from specialists in various disciplines including religious studies and literature, this new addition to the Dao Companions to Chinese Philosophy series includes the latest research. It breaks new ground with studies of Han Fei's intellectual antecedents, and his relationship as a historical figure with Han Feizi, the text attributed to him, as well as surveying the full panoply of his thought. It also includes a chapter length survey of relevant scholarship, both in Chinese and Japanese.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the book reviews:

"Goldin et al.'s multidisciplinary and erudite view on the Han Feizi is ultimately of twofold benefit. Firstly, it will please the specialist owing to the array of groundbreaking scholarship and, secondly, it will furnish a solid understanding of crucial issues in the study of Han Fei and legalism in general for those new to the subject, thus fulfilling what one would expect from an actual companion." (Lukas Pokorny, Religious Studies Review, Vol. 40 (3), September, 2014)

"Dao Companion to the Philosophy of Han Fei, the book under review, is a milestone on the way to advancing the academic standing of this often misunderstood philosopher. Serving as an introduction or overview of Han Fei's philosophy as well as an assessment of specific ideas and issues within Legalist thought and its relationship to Confucianism, this is a much needed book, a collection of essays, a true 'companion.'" (Henrique Schneider, Dao, Vol. 13, 2014)
