Difficult Characters: Interdisciplinary Studies of Chinese and Japanese Writing. Pathways to Advanced Skills Series, Volume 6
Erbaugh, Mary S.
Foreign Language Publications
Mary S. Erbaugh has compiled this volume to examine the so-called "ideographic myth" from a variety of perspectives. Through this multidisciplinary collection of articles, we learn how the myth has come about, what sort of theory and empirical evidence have been generated to refute it, and how this myth has stubbornly persisted to hamper progress in a number of scholarly areas. But perhaps most importantly, this volume presents in a detailed manner how different academic disciplines go about analyzing historical and empirical data in order to arrive at new knowledge.
