Image-thinking and the understanding of "being": The psychological basis of linguistic expression

Philosophy East and West 55 (2):179-208 (2005)
Abstract
: This essay investigates why and how East Asian thought, particularly Chinese thought, has traditionally developed differently from that of Western philosophy by examining the linguistic differences discerned in the Chinese language and Western languages. To accomplish this task, it focuses on the understanding of "being" that relates to the theoretical thinking of the West and the image-thinking of East Asia, while providing a psychological basis for the latter
