In this first systematic study in English of the highly influential yet overlooked thinker Xue Xuan (1389--1464), author Khee Heong Koh seeks to redress Xue's marginalization while showing how a study interested mainly in ideas can integrate social and intellectual history to offer a broader picture of history.
