About the Talk
Professor Jao Tsung-I was delighted by the publishing of Professor Sze Yee Tui’s “Literature and God”, and thought it an impossible mission without divine inspiration. That is a question only the author can answer. The book took Prof. Sze more than a decade of researching and writing, and four years of editing. Just as the proverb goes, it takes ten years to grind a sword, so it took just as long to Prof. Sze to perfect every word in the book.
Prof. Sze will take us through of how he wrote the book, and what he has learned from Prof. Yao. He will also give us a glimpse into the alluring world of his intellectual journey.
