CFP: Oxford Symposium on Comparative Political Philosophy

I am happy to post this on behalf of Baldwin Wong, Elton Chan, Larry Lai, and Nikolas Kirby (whose contact info is available at the end):

1st Oxford Symposium on Comparative Political Philosophy

10th – 12th July, 2019

Blavatnik School of Government, The University of Oxford

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Stephen C. Angle (Wesleyan University)

We are a group of scholars aiming to facilitate substantive philosophical argument amongst political theorists across diverse cultural traditions. In recent years there has been an increasing interest among Anglo-American political theorists in comparing the diverse ways of how the thinkers of different cultural traditions address political issues. Several academic publishers (such as Cambridge University Press and Princeton University Press) and journals (such as American Political Science Review and European Journal of Political Theory) have published work about Confucian, Islamic, Indian and African political theories. Yet despite this growing body of literature, there is still inadequate substantive engagement across different traditions about fundamental questions in political theory and public policy. The driving interest of our project is to promote such engagement, comparing competing (or possibly similar) answers to substantive questions, testing arguments and assumptions across traditions in philosophical debate, and then ask whether this debate can shed light on questions of substantive policy.

With these issues in mind, we attempt to create a regular platform for fruitful cooperation and exchange of ideas among comparative political theorists. This three-day symposium is the first step. Scholars are invited to present their recent, original research in this subfield. The symposium each year will be organized around a particular theme in political theory and public policy.

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.

New essay on ‘situational identity’ and Daoism
