I am pleased to announce that the Philosophy program at Eastern Michigan University has a new M.A. program. The program has strengths in Chinese and comparative philosophy, gender & sexuality, philosophy of science, philosophical counseling, social philosophy, food justice, and environmental ethics.
We are located in Southeastern Michigan, about 40 minutes west of Detroit and 10 minutes east of Ann Arbor.
We are now accepting applications for 2014-2015.
Please visit our website for more information. We are also listed in the APA Graduate Guide.
Feel free to email me with any questions.
Prof. Kwong-loi Shun, who taught at U.C. Berkeley from 1986-2003, has returned there after most recently serving as the Head of New Asia College at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He will be teaching one course per term, starting this spring. If anyone knows what his plans may be about accepting graduate students, please let us know.
Two events are coming up soon at the Center for East Asian and Comparative Philosophy at the City University of Hong Kong:
First, Bryan Van Norden is giving the CEACOP Annual Lecture on 13 March at 4:00pm, entitled “Truth and Argument in Ancient Chinese Philosophy”:
Then, on the weekend of 15-16 March, the center is hosting a conference on “Traditional Non-Confucian Perspectives on Social and Political Organization and Order”:
The APA sent out an announcement with the first CFP for their new journal, and it is worth noting that two of the eighteen Advisory Editors have specialties in Chinese philosophy. This marks a significant advance for our field, and I hope that everyone will consider it as an avenue for bringing Chinese philosophy to a more mainstream readership.

Early next week, Manyul is going to offer a precis and discussion of the article; we hope many of you will join in the conversation to follow.
Sungmoon Kim’s new book, Confucian Democracy in East Asia: Theory and Practice has just been published by Cambridge University Press. According to my blurb on the back of the book:
Confucianism is neither ready-made for democracy nor inalterably opposed to it. As Sungmoon Kim shows in this important book, however, a Confucianism worth defending in the complex, multicultural East Asia of today both can and must incorporate a robust form of democracy. Kim deploys a wealth of careful arguments that draw from classical Confucianism, a wide range of Western political theorists, and the distinctive political culture of modern Korea. The result is a rich and provocative work that successfully bridges theory and practice. Anyone interested in the future possibilities for democracy and for Confucianism – whether conjoined or not – will have to take this book seriously.
Cambridge is offering a 20% discount to readers of this blog, though Amazon has the book discounted as well, and may be less expensive (depending on shipping options). In any event, congratulations, Sungmoon!
Philosophy of the Past: Early Chinese Philosophy in Context
Tom Mazanec, Kay Duffy
On a chilly late-winter morning, as the sun pierced through leafless tree branches and the dotted snowscape melted into auguries of spring, a small band of scholars met in Princeton University’s Jones Hall to discuss methods for studying early Chinese philosophy. Organized by two Princeton graduate students, Mercedes Valmisa and Sara Vantournhout, the conference drew approximately twenty-five attendees to hear four main presentations and several hours of lively debate. Martin Kern (Princeton) served as moderator for presentations by Carine Defoort (KU Leuven), Jane Geaney (University of Richmond), Mark Csikszentmihalyi (University of California, Berkeley), and Paul Goldin (University of Pennsylvania) on topics ranging across a wide variety of early texts, employing four distinct methodologies.

The following open letter has been circulating on the internet, signed by a long list of individuals, mostly academic scholars of Confucianism. They call for the repair, renovation, and re-opening of Confucian Temples around China; for expanding the roles of these temples (mainly in education); and for reorganizing the administration of the temples to move away from commercial goals. I apologize for not having the time right now to translate it.

Philosophy Compass is a comparatively new on-line journal. For the last several years, its area editor for Chinese and comparative philosophy has been Karyn Lai.

I just finished reading Mark Saltveit’s book The Tao of Chip Kelly. For anyone curious about the book, I’m posting an informal review here.
The Tao of Chip Kelly is an enjoyable read on the leadership and coaching strategies of Philadelphia Eagle’s head coach, Chip Kelly. The book presents lessons on leadership from Kelly’s coaching career, the majority of which are drawn from his four seasons at the University of Oregon. While Saltveit’s introduction claims the book is aimed towards management strategy, the book is accessible to anyone and potentially of interest to anyone interested in team strategies, football, or contemporary applications of ideas drawn from Laozi or Zhuangzi.

Contests long-standing claims that Confucianism came to prominence under China’s Emperor Wu.
When did Confucianism become the reigning political ideology of imperial China? A pervasive narrative holds it was during the reign of Emperor Wu of the Han dynasty (141–87 BCE). In this book, Liang Cai maintains that such a date would have been too early and provides a new account of this transformation. A hidden narrative in Sima Qian’s The Grand Scribe’s Records (Shi ji) shows that Confucians were a powerless minority in the political realm of this period. Cai argues that the notorious witchcraft scandal of 91–87 BCE reshuffled the power structure of the Western Han bureaucracy and provided Confucians an opportune moment to seize power, evolve into a new elite class, and set the tenor of political discourse for centuries to come.
Liang Cai is Assistant Professor of History at the University of Arkansas.

From the description at the Rowman and Littlefield International website: http://www.rowmaninternational.com/news/critical-overviews-in-comparative-philosophy
The Critical Overviews in Comparative Philosophy series aims to present detailed and inclusive surveys of contemporary research in multiple areas of Asian and Comparative Philosophy. Each volume will outline and engage with the current research within comparative philosophy through the lenses of traditional philosophical areas such as ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, and language/logic, offering those outside the fields in question (both scholars and students) an up-to-date picture of the work being done in these areas. This series will cover topics in East Asian and South Asian philosophy, primarily in a comparative context.
Each volume will be a single-authored work presenting, synthesizing, and analyzing recent developments in particular areas within a field of comparative research, as well as offering promising directions for future research, outlining possible objections and solutions, and considering ways the area might be further developed.

Would you like to write a review on the blog of Ted Slingerland’s forthcoming book, Trying Not To Try? If so, please contact me via email. The publisher would be happy to send a free copy of the book to a reviewer for this blog.
A recent book review on NDPR raises issues in the philosophy of Kant that made me think of Mou Zongsan’s New Confucianism, and more particularly, of current Taiwanese philosopher Lee Ming-huei’s efforts to further develop and defend Mou’s views. This is the review:
Jeanine Grenberg, Kant’s Defense of Common Moral Experience: A Phenomenological Account, Cambridge University Press, 2013, 300pp., $99.00 (hbk), ISBN 9781107033580. Reviewed by Patrick Frierson, Whitman College
As you’ll see from the review, Grenberg posits a very strong role for “moral feeling” (about which the reviewer is quite skeptical!). Whether or not this is good Kant, it does sound something like Lee’s reading of Confucianism. For what that is worth!

Friend of the blog, Amod Lele, and a group of Indian Philosophy scholars have launched The Indian Philosophy Blog. We welcome it to the comparative philosophy blogosphere!
The list of contributors includes: Douglas Berger, Jason Birch, Daniele Cuneo, Matthew Dasti, Aleix Ruiz Falqués, Elisa Freschi, Elon Goldstein, Stephen Harris, Amod Lele, Ethan Mills, Andrew Ollett, Shyam Ranganathan, Agnieszka Rostalska, Justin Whitaker, and Mike Williams.
The new issue of Modern China has an article by Xiaoqing Diana Lin entitled “Creating Modern Chinese Metaphysics: Feng Youlan and New Realism.” The abstract is available at this link.
Journalist Evan Osnos has a new article, “Confucius Comes Home,” in The New Yorker. Only subscribers will have access to more than the first few paragraphs, I fear. It’s a terrific and provocative piece!
We are happy to announce that Tim Connolly is going to serve as our first Content Acquisition Editor, with a focus on comparative methods, including the comparison of ways that we all have approached Chinese-Western comparative philosophy, with comparative approaches in other areas. Please see the Contributor page for Tim’s bio. We look forward to working with him!
For those who attended the APA Eastern meeting this year, the APA just sent out an online survey, part of which has to do with diversity issues. I’d like to suggest that those who are concerned about the lack of non-Western philosophy in the main program include mention of this at the end of the survey. They seem to view diversity mainly with regard to people, but I think it should be extended to include fields.
Just a thought.

China Policy is an impressive commercial website that has been sending me teasers…and the most recent one contains a bit I thought I’d share: a fascinating essay by a contemporary Chinese political theorist critiquing the idea that China ought to pursue a form of “new authoritarianism” that will lead ultimately to democracy. Instead, says Rong Jian, it may well lead to fascism. I think this link will take you to the page with the essay.
As Steve and Manyul announced last month, with each new issue of Dao the blog will host a discussion of one of the issue’s articles, and the journal will make that article freely available online. Here I’m kicking off the series with a discussion of Loy Hui-chieh’s “On the Argument for Jian’ai” (Dao 12.4, available here).
Loy’s article treats the Mohists’ main argument for inclusive care (jiān ài 兼愛), focusing on the role played in it by appeals to virtues such as filial piety that are inevitably partial. Fundamental to his treatment is the view (which I share) that inclusive care did not require absolute impartiality—it did not imply that we have equal obligations to all people, or that we should treat them the same, or feel the same about them. Loy thus undermines one common sort or argument against the Mohists, that inclusive care is incompatible with the partial virtues and is therefore morally dubious. However, this does not mean that the Mohists’ own appeals to the partial virtues succeed, and Loy goes on to argue that they do not. I’ll sketch Loy’s argument, and then make critical comments on two points.

We are happy to welcome Carl Dull, a long-time blog reader and commentator, as a new contributor. Here is Carl’s self-introduction:
Carl J. Dull received a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Southern Illinois University where he studied both Chinese and Western traditions. He has taught at the Nanjing School of Foreign Language and worked for Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth in Nanjing and Hong Kong. His major interest is early Chinese thought, especially Zhuangzi. His dissertation investigates wandering and the heart in Zhuangzi, and proposes various positive ethical ideals for caring for living. His current research looks at early Chinese thought as a resource for moral psychology and therapeutic practice. His previous work includes the power of inspiration in Confucius, the practical compatibility between Confucian principles and Human Rights, and the language games of Zhuangzi and Wittgenstein. Contact: email@example.com.
Issue 12:4 of Dao: A Journal of Comparatie Philosophy is now available on-line; see below for the Table of Contents. I’d like to call everyone’s attention to the fact that Hui-chieh Loy’s article, “On the Argument for Jian’ai,” is available for free access to everyone (just click on the “Full Text PDF” link for that article below). Next week, we will host some discussion of this article here on the blog, to be led off by an intial “featured post” on the subject by Dan Robins. Please read through Loy’s article and take part in the conversation!

Sarah Allan, Editor of Early China, reports:
To all interested in Early China:
As of January 1, 2014, publication of Early China will move from the Institute of East Asian Studies, U.C. Berkeley, to Cambridge University Press. We leave the Institute of East Asian Studies with a deep sense of gratitude. I am particularly grateful to Martin Backstrom, Kate Chouta, and Erik Lyngen of IEAS for their goodwill and assistance as we make this transition. Over the last forty years, Early China has been transformed from a newsletter to a highly professional journal. This could not have happened without the unusual dedication, expertise, and sharp eye of David Goodrich of Birdtrack Press to whom we will always be indebted.

Two recently published books deserve our attention:
P.J. Ivanhoe, Confucian Reflections: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times (Routledge, 2013); this rich and concise book “…argues that the Analects is as relevant and important today as it has proven to be over the course of its more than 2000 year history, not only for the people who live in East Asian societies but for all human beings.”
Joseph Chan, Confucian Perfectionism: A Political Philosophy for Modern Times (Princeton, 2013); a long-awaited major statement of Chan’s modern Confucianism, it “…examines and reconstructs both Confucian political thought and liberal democratic institutions, blending them to form a new Confucian political philosophy.”
Tongdong Bai writes:
Thanks to your support, since it was launched in 2010, the MA and Visiting programs in Chinese philosophy (with courses taught in English) at Fudan have been extremely successful. It has been three years since these programs were launched in 2011, and 34 students have been enrolled in either the M.A. program (28 students) and the
visiting student program (6 students).
