    Once More on the Two Truths: What Does Chi–Tsang Mean by the Two Truths as ‘Yüeh–Chiao’?Whalen W. Lai - 1983 - Religious Studies 19 (4):505-521.
    The teaching of the Buddha concerning Reality has recourse to Two Truths: the Mundane and the Highest Truth. Without knowing the distinction between the two, one does not know the profound point of the teachings. The Highest Truth cannot be taught apart from the Mundane, but without understanding the former, one does not apprehend nirvāna.

    Yung and the Tradition of the Shih: The Confucian Restructuring of Heroic Courage: Whalen Lai.Whalen Lai - 1985 - Religious Studies 21 (2):181-203.
    Courage is a basic virtue to any heroic society. It is the defining virtue of the aristocratic warrior in the Iliad. It came with a set of other related virtues, all functioning in a social setting unique to that heroic era. However, as society evolved beyond the heroics of war to the civility of settled city–states, courage would be reviewed and redefined. In fact the whole virtue complex would undergo fundamental changes. Still later, when from out of the cities philosophers (...)

    The Public Good That Does the Public Good: A New Reading of Mohism.Whalen Lai - 1993 - Asian Philosophy 3 (2):125 – 141.
    Abstract Mohism has long been misrepresented. Mo?tzu is usually called a utilitarian because he preached a universal love that must benefit. Yet Mencius, who pined the Confucian way of virtue (humaneness and righteousness) against Mo?tzu's way of benefit, basically borrowed Mo?tzu's thesis: that the root cause of chaos is this lack of love?except Mencius renamed it the desire for personal benefit. Yet Mo?tzu only championed ?benefit? to head off its opposite, ?harm?, specifically the harm done by Confucians who with good (...)

    On “Trust and Being True”: Toward a Genealogy of Morals.Whalen Lai - 2010 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 9 (3):257-274.
    This Nietzschesque “genealogy of morals” presents the Confucian virtue of xin (trust and true) so basic to friendship as a civic virtue rooted among social equals. Among non-equals, a servant has to prove his trustworthiness but not yet vice versa. The script 信 ( xin ) tells of living up to one’s words. Yanxing 言行 (speech and action) describes actively keeping a verbal promise. The Agrarian school endorses xin as the primary virtue in its utopia of virtual equals. It knew (...)

    White Horse Not Horse: Making Sense of a Negative Logic.Whalen Lai - 1995 - Asian Philosophy 5 (1):59 – 74.
    Abstract Kung?sun Lung's thesis on ?White Horse [is] not Horse? has been solved by A. C. Graham on the basis of a part/whole logic and by Chad Hansen on that and a ?mass?noun? hypothesis. We present it as a case of reducing White Horse to its two most telling marks and then, on the basis of the good Sense (instead of Reference) in a Negative Logic?the pragmatics of locating X as the remainder left over when all non?X's have been removed?show (...)

    Of One Mind or Two? Query on the Innate Good in Mencius: Whalen Lai.Whalen Lai - 1990 - Religious Studies 26 (2):247-255.
    Every man, says Mencius, has within him this mind of commiseration, this pu-jen chih hsin that cannot bear to see another person suffer. To support his argument, Mencius cites the parable of the child about to fall into a well. A man with an innate mind of compassion unable to bear to see the child suffer would naturally feel the urge to run ahead to save the child . Yet elsewhere in Mencius 4A.17, it appears that had the potential victim (...)

The Blade as part stands in here for the whole which is the Sword. But just as Sword as ?hilt plus blade? is more than blade, then via analogia, White Horse as ?white plus horse? is more than the part that is just ?horse?. Graham had taken over (...)
