(p.56) Chapter 3 Liu Zhi’s Concepts and Terminology
Rectifying God's Name

James D. Frankel

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter delves into the contents of Liu Zhi's work, focusing on his use of specific Chinese terms and concepts, their origins and meanings in Chinese thought, and their correspondence to Islamic principles. It places Liu Zhi's work within the larger context of the Han Kitāb texts, as readers of his work were expected to have read his other writings, if not the other texts of the Han Kitāb. In addition, any literate Chinese reader of the time would also have been intimately familiar with the texts of the classical Confucian canon that informed and influenced these writings. Thus it is with these contexts in mind that the chapter reads the Tianfang dianli, singling it out from the rest of Liu Zhi's Tianfang trilogy.

Keywords:   Chinese, Chinese thought, Islamic principles, Tianfang dianli, Confucianism, Han Kitāb, Tianfang trilogy
