Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, Frankfurt/M., New York, Oxford, Wien. Schweizer Asiatische Studien. Monographien. Bd. 38 Herausgegeben von Robert Gassmann. The reception of China in the West is very often dominated by Chinese scholars like Lin Yutang who defined the Chinese people as joyful beings and Chinese civilization as a civilization of joy. Nonetheless, in the history of Chinese thought since ancient times not only the expression of sadness itself but also guidelines to its expression can be found.
