Chapter Summary

This appendix section of the book Liberal Cosmopolitan: Lin Yutang and Middling Chinese Modernity presents the chronology of Lin Yutang from 1895-1976. This book is a cross-cultural critique on the problem of the liberal cosmopolitan in modern Chinese intellectuality in light of Lin Yutang's literary and cultural practices across China and America. It includes comparative reference to other discourses of major literary and intellectual figures such as Zhang Zhidong, Liang Qichao, Gu Hongming, Hu Shi, Lu Xun, Zhou Zuoren, Pearl S. Buck, Agnes Smedley and Edgar Snow. The book also demonstrates that a liberal cosmopolitan road, which suggests a middling Chinese modernity, is both possible and desirable.

Keywords:Liberal cosmopolitan; Lin Yutang
