Abstract

Chinese Muslim thinkers created a new systematic theory of Islam regarded as “Chinese Islamic Philosophy” during Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) Dynasties. This was accomplished through transforming and combining core concepts of Islamic thought with the core values of traditional Chinese thought. Based on an analysis of representative works written by Chinese Muslim thinkers proficient with both Islamic doctrines and Chinese traditional thought, I explain the key ideas of Chinese Islamic Philosophy. I conclude that Chinese Islamic Philosophy can be regarded as an exemplary product of successful cultural assimilation; as such, it has wide relevance to diverse civilizations.
