Dimensions of Originality investigates the issue of conceptual originality in seventeenth-century art criticism, a period in which China dynamically reinvented itself. The term which was called upon to indicate conceptual originality more than any other was qi, literally, different- but secondarily, odd, like a number and, by extension, the novel and extraordinary. Burnett speculates on why many have dismissed originality as a traditional Chinese value, and the ramifications this has had on understanding.

She further demonstrates that a study of key terms can reveal social and cultural values, and provides a linear history of the increase in use of qi as originality through the seventeenth centuries.
