Did the Chinese Have a Change of Heart?
Klein, Esther; Klein, Colin
Cognitive Science, v36 n2 p179-182 Mar 2012
In their "The Prevalence of Mind-Body Dualism in Early China," Slingerland and Chudek use a statistical analysis of the early Chinese corpus to argue for Weak Folk Dualism (WFD). We raise three methodological objections to their analysis. First, the change over time that they find is largely driven by genre. Second, the operationalization of WFD is potentially misleading. And, third, dating the texts they use is extremely controversial. We conclude with some positive remarks. (Contains 3 notes and 2 figures.)
