In this talk I look at the Chinese interest in the Western Classical World in a long-term perspective, from antiquity to present. I shall reveal the main frameworks into which Graeco-Roman concepts were and are anchored and discuss the degree to which Western Classics had and have an impact on Chinese discourses, and vice-versa.
