CFP: ISCWP at 2019 Pacific APA

The ISCWP plans to sponsor one or two panels at the 2019 APA-Pacific Meeting, which will take place in Vancouver, CanadaApril 17-20, 2019.
We would like to encourage submissions of proposals of individual papers and panels. We encourage papers or panels that promote in-depth engagement between Chinese and Western philosophy (broadly construed). The submissions will be reviewed by all the three members of the board. When we select papers, we normally try to find papers that have a common theme to form a panel. You may have a better chance to be accepted if you submit a panel proposal which already has a common theme.

New entry on Xunzi in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

I just noticed that the SEP has a new entry on the Xunzi, penned by Paul Goldin (published earlier this month). (Look forward to reading it, Paul!) The older entry, penned by Dan Robins, is linked to at the top of the current one. I don’t know what goes behind the editorial decisions to replace existing entries with newer ones by different authors, but I think it’s great that readers will have more than one perspective to look at when turning to the SEP, which has been a go-to site for me when I want to read up on an area of philosophy foreign to me.

Using _Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction_ in class

I used Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction as the main textbook in a course on Neo-Confucianism this past semester. Student comments on the book (submitted anonymously as part of the teaching evaluation process) are available here. If any readers have used the book, Justin and I would love any further feedback!
