Dr Wu’s Research interests focus broadly on a philosophical rereading of Confucian and Daoist classics and comparative studies of Chinese and European thought. He is also a serious Chinese translator of the French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. His traditional research interest use to be Chinese and comparative literature, with a particular emphasis on modern Chinese literature and the literary influences it received from Western romanticism. He revisits this research field from time to time and produces works especially on the modern Chinese writer 鲁迅 Lu Xun. Dr Wu’s research gives specific attention to the relevance of traditional Chinese thought to modern life and the potentiality of a philosophically productive dialogue between Chinese thought and Western philosophy.
