BJHP Welcomes Non-Western Philosophy

| 0 comments

Michael Beaney, editor of the British Journal for the History of Philosophy, recently wrote me to call my attention to his most recent editorial at the journal. Its penultimate paragraph reads, in part:

At the BJHP we will continue to publish the very best articles on the ‘canonical’ figures, but we will also be redoubling our efforts to broaden that canon as much as we can. As we move forward, what we would like to promote, above all, is more work on non-Western philosophy, especially where it seeks to deepen dialogue between the various traditions through critical engagement and fruitful comparison. So here, in particular, we would like to underline that we welcome submissions that discuss non-Western philosophy even if our record to date might suggest otherwise.

This is of course very welcome. For more an earlier discussion of publishing in the history of Chinese philosophy, see here.
