JOHN MAKEHAM is Reader in Chinese, Centre for Asian Studies, Adelaide University. For most of the last decade he has worked in the area of pre-modern Confucian intellectual history. Between 1993-2001 he studied the Chinese commentary tradition on the Analects from the second to the nineteenth centuries, a period substantially contemporaneous with the rise and decline of scriptural Confucianism (Transmitters and Creators: Chinese Commentators and Commentaries on the Analects, Harvard Asia Center, 2003). His current research project on contemporary discourse on Confucianism is a direct outgrowth of his work on early periods in Confucian intellectual history. He has also published Name and Actuality in Early Chinese Thought (SUNY, 1994) and a translation of the Han Dynasty Confucian thinker Xu Gan's (170-217) Balanced Discourses (Yale, 2002).
