CFP: Truth and Asian Philosophy

The Asian Journal of Philosophy is pleased to announce a call for papers for a Topical Collection on “Truth and Asian Philosophy.”

The Asian Journal of Philosophy is a brand new journal that aims to publish high-quality articles in any area of analytic philosophy, including what might be called “Asian analytic philosophy,” which is the journal’s way of referring to engagement with Asian philosophical traditions utilizing analytic philosophical methodologies and vocabularies. The journal aspires to be a leading platform for analytic philosophy in Asia. You can find more information about the journal here:

For this Topical Collection on “Truth and Asian Philosophy,” we are interested in papers that engage with questions relating to truth and Asian philosophy. Some sample research topics might include but are certainly not limited to:

  • How is truth as a concept manifested in Asian philosophical traditions?
  • What can cross-cultural inquiries tell us about truth as a philosophical concept?
  • What can we learn about truth from studying Asian traditions?

Papers for the Topical Collection will be published in regular issues of the journal rather than in a dedicated special issue, so we have some flexibility in when we are able to process submissions.
