As always, a wonderful analysis.

I would add that it's not only Chinese philosophy that is left out of these kinds of essays. One rarely sees mention of Muslim or Hindu philosophy either. Add to this the cosmology of American Indians and the various religious and/or philosophic perspectives from Africa.

It is simply a sad fact that too many Western thinkers and pundits only draw conclusions from a most narrow view of cultural history. There is a cornucopia of traditions throughout the world; it's unfortunate that Western "cooks" use the same ingredients over and over again, only to complain that the feast has such a mundane flavor.
