The lecture will be dealing with problems encountered by Western researchers working in the field of Chinese philosophy. It will open with a discussion of intercultural and transcultural methodologies and illuminates some of the most common issues inherent in traditional intercultural comparisons in the field of philosophy. Taking into account the current state of the so-called postcomparative discourses in the field of transcultural philosophy and starting from the notion of culturally divergent frames of reference, it will then focus upon semantic aspects of the Chinese philosophical tradition and expose the need for discursive translations. On this basis, a new postcomparative approach in transcultural philosophical studies of Chinese philosophy will be suggested. In this context, I will propose the application of an innovative principle, based upon what can preliminary be denoted as the method of sublation.
