9780226735849: The Crafting of the 10,000 Things: Knowledge and Technology in Seventeenth-century China

The last decades of the Ming dynasty, though plagued by chaos and destruction, saw major advances in knowledge and technology. Among the numerous guides and reference books that appeared during this period was a series of texts by Song Yingxing (1587-1666?), a minor local official living in southern China. His "Tiangong kaiwu", the longest and most prominent of these works, documents the extraction and processing of raw materials, and the manufacture of goods essential to everyday life, from pearls and wine to boats, carts, and firearms. In "The Crafting of the 10,000 Things Dagmar Schafer" probes this fascinating text and the legacy of its author to shed new light on the development of scientific thinking in China, the purpose of technical writing, and its role in and effects on Chinese history. Meticulously unfolding the layers of Song's personal and cultural life, Schafer places the Tiangong kaiwu squarely in its original milieu - both practically and theoretically - and thus develops a new understanding of scientific and technological thinking. Even as she vividly sets the Chinese scene, Schafer offers incisive comparisons between seventeenth-century China and Europe. Sinologists and historians of science alike will be engrossed by this book, the first to place Song's writing in a broader context.

Descrizione libro University Of Chicago Press, 2011. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "When it was first rediscovered in Japan early last century, modernist Japanese, Chinese, and Euro-American scholars hastily assimilated Song Yingxing's Tiangong kaiwu to the accruing literature on the allegedly ill-fated history of science and technology in late imperial China. They framed an overdetermined view of Song's accomplishments in light of the failure of China to develop 'modern science.' This simple-minded teleology has now been challenged by Dagmar Schfer. Schfer contextualizes Song's so-called magnum opus by placing this longest and most prominent of Song's works alongside his other writings, and reenacts for us the culturally embedded practices that informed Song Yingxing's career of knowledge-making in a time of precocious commercialization and commoditization in Ming China.".
