Abstract

Abstract:

In response to challenges to ritual practice, Xunzi developed not only a theoryo f ritual but also a method of ritual performance that can be illuminated by a comparison to modern Western acting techniques. His method also reveals a "tragic" aesthetic, through which he attempts to reconcile the diversity of beliefs about death within a single practice.
