With each published issue of Dao, we choose one article for discussion here on Warp, Weft, and Way, and Dao‘s publisher gives everyone free access to the article for a year. The next article to get this treatment is “Aristotle and Confucius on the Socioeconomics of Shame” by Thorian Harris. The article can be accessed here. Howard Curzer of Texas Tech is going to start off the discussion in a couple weeks with a précis; in the meantime, we encourage you to download and read the article, and then join in the discussion when it begins.
Those who want to explore Chinese thought in more depth will soon have the opportunity to participate in not one, but two Massive Open On-line Courses (MOOCs):
- Edward Slingerland’s “Foundations of Chinese Thought” is set to begin on edX on October 14, and run for seven weeks.
- Chad Hansen’s “Humanity and Nature in Chinese Thought,” also on edX, is scheduled to begin in January.
