CFP: The Future of Whole Person Education in East Asian Higher Education

Invitation for proposal (abstract) submission for the conference on “The Future of Whole Person Education in East Asian Higher Education: Its Philosophy and Endeavour from Within and Abroad,” 2019

With the support of generous donation from Tin Ka Ping Foundation, the Department of Religion and Philosophy and the Centre for Sino-Christian Studies at Hong Kong Baptist University are going to organize a conference on the theme “The Future of Whole Person Education in East Asian Higher Education: Its Philosophy and Endeavour from Within and Abroad”, to be held at Hong Kong Baptist University on Friday and Saturday, September 27-28, 2019. The conference is organized to pay tribute to the late Dr. Tin Ka Ping, a renowned education benefactor in the Greater China Region. The Foundation has provided funds to more than 90 tertiary institutions, 166 secondary schools, more than 40 primary schools and kindergartens, and over 1,650 suburban libraries across 34 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions in the mainland China. In Hong Kong, more than 20 primary and secondary schools, kindergartens and elderly and youth care centers are named after Dr. Tin. We anticipate that the conference will share the vision of the importance of moral education and develop a culture of service and virtue cultivation in Chinese and East Asian Societies.

“Future of Confucian Political Philosophy” Published

I’d like to call out one item in the recently-published issue of Comparative Philosophy for special mention. “The Future of Confucian Political Philosophy” is a 22,000 word edited transcript of a roundtable discussion that was held in Hong Kong in February 2017. (Direct link to the transcript is here.) The main speakers are:

  • Stephen C. ANGLE, Wesleyan University
  • Elton CHAN, Yale-NUS College
  • Joseph CHAN, University of Hong Kong
  • Jiwei CI, University of Hong Kong
  • Ruiping FAN, City University of Hong Kong
  • Yong HUANG, Chinese University of Hong Kong
  • Yi-Huah JIANG, City University of Hong Kong
  • Sungmoon KIM, City University of Hong Kong

We each make presentations, and then there is ample time for discussion, both among the invited speakers and with other attendees. On behalf of all participants, I hope that readers will find this to be an engaging snapshot of the some of the state of the art — and some glimpses of the future — of Confucian political philosophy. Discussion here of its themes is of course encouraged!
