    Xunzi’s Theory of Ritual Revisited: Reading Ritual as Corporal Technology.Ori Tavor - 2013 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 12 (3):313-330.
    This essay offers a new reading of Xunzi’s ritual theory against the backdrop of excavated technical manuals from the Mawangdui and Zhangjiashan collections. While most studies tend to focus on the sociopolitical and moral aspects of Xunzi’s thought, I attempt to demonstrate that in composing his theory of ritual, Xunzi was not only concerned with defending the Confucian tradition against the criticism of his fellow philosophical masters, but was also responding to the emergence of bio-spiritual practices such as meditation, sexual (...)

    Naming/Power: Linguistic Engineering and the Construction of Discourse in Early China.Ori Tavor - 2014 - Asian Philosophy 24 (4):313-329.
    The interplay between language and politics has been the subject of increased academic interest in the last few decades. The idea that language can be used as a device not only for communication but also for control and manipulation, however, is by no means new. This article traces the emergence of one of the first fully formed Chinese theories of language, Xunzi’s ‘rectification of names’ doctrine, in order to reconstruct a social history of language in early China. In addition to (...)
