Includes bibliographical references and index.
Giulia Falato's work on Alfonso Vagnone S.J.' s (1568-1640) Tongyou jiaoyu (On the Education of Children) offers a systematic study of the earliest treatise on European pedagogy and its first annotated translation in English. In particular, it highlights the role of Tongyou jiaoyu as a cultural bridge between the Chinese and Western traditions. Drawing from archival materials and multi-language literature, Falato produces an insightful account of the Jesuit's background, the pedagogical debate in late-Ming China, and the making and main sources of the treatise. Through the diachronic analysis of a selection of philosophical terms, this work also provides a fresh perspective on the Jesuits' lexical innovations and contribution to the formation of the modern Chinese lexicon.
