Emotion, Desire, and Numismatic Experience in Descartes, Zhu Xi, and Wang Yangming

Ming Qing Yanjiu 2001:45-75 (2001)
Abstract
In this article, I explore the relationship between desire and emotion in Descartes, Zhu Xi, and Wang Yangming with the aim of demonstrating 1) that Zhu Xi, by keying on the detriments of selfishness, represents an improvement over the more sweeping Cartesian suggestion to control desires in general; and 2) that Wang Yangming, in turn, represents an improvement over Zhu Xi by providing a more sophisticated hermeneutic of the cosmology of desire.
