An Analysis of Chinese Traditional Hermits from the Perspective of Philosophy
The group of hermits is a special philosophical object attracting much attention, and its culture is also a unique phenomenon in Chinese history. The hermit is an intellectual who is hiding from the bustle world and may not fit with the major value system. Thus, as a hermit, they first lead a simple life without much social contact with the outside world, and then they are intellectuals having not only the idiosyncrasy of “hiding” but also their own spirit carried on generation after generation. This paper is a discussion on the essence and spiritual idiosyncrasy of “hiding” and “intellectual” starting from the logic generation of “hiding”, and then a precise interpretation of the feature of “hermits” as a cultural phenomenon based on observation of their history.
