Kwan Tze-Wan -"Interpretation of the 'Six Ways' of Chinese Script Formation"

March 3, 2:30pm - 4:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Sakamaki Hall C-308 Add to Calendar

Phenomenology and Chinese script appear to be two disciplines lying as far apart as one can imagine. This lecture attempts to show that in regard to meaning constitution, the former is particularly conducive to a systematic interpretation of the latter. To illustrate this interpretative role of phenomenological concepts for the so-called six ways of Chinese script formation, archaic script tokens (mainly oracle bone scripts and bronze script) are drawn from a database now being developed at the Chinese University of Hong Kong will be used as examples.
