"Two Chinese Philosophers", which appeared in 1958, was the first book by the late Angus Graham, who went on to establish a reputation both as one of the leading sinologists of the 20th century and as a creative philosopher in his own right. In the course of a scholarly career spanning more than 40 years, Graham became known as a thinker and interpreter of extraordinary depth and incomparable breadth. Since the initial publication of "Two Chinese Philosophers", the field of neo-Confucian studies has proliferated, yet Graham's work on Ch'eng Ming-tao (Ch'eng Hao, 1032-1085) and Ch'eng Yi-ch'uan (Ch'eng Yi, 1033-1107) has not been superseded. The Ch'eng brothers were leading exponents of the neo-Confucian revival, which became orthodox state doctrine, used thereafter for the training and ideological moulding of the Chinese ruling class.
