This paper provides an overview of some of the most significant engagements and appropriations of Western philosophy by Chinese intellectuals. Both the process of translation of Western philosophical texts and the importance of historical and cultural upheavals in China are contextualized into a schematic periodization which sheds light on the divergent ways in which Chinese philosophers have engaged Western philosophy since the 16th century.
