Journal of Confucian Philosophy and Culture (JCPC): New Website

The Journal of Confucian Philosophy and Culture (JCPC) is a peer-reviewed international journal published by the Institute of Confucian Philosophy and Culture, Sungkyunkwan University. It is the only English language journal dedicated exclusively to research concerning the history and contemporary relevance of Confucianism.

It was first published in 2001 for the purpose of interpreting and exploring Confucianism from a modern perspective. From 2007 it sought to integrate broader academic dialogue by publishing articles in Chinese and English. From August 2019, JCPC will strengthen its international network and broaden its global presence by concentrating on articles written in English.

JCPC (ISSN 1598-267X) is published biannually (in February and August) and welcomes the
contribution of both articles and book reviews. Please visit our web page at:

Body and Mind in Early China: Embodied Cognition, Digital Humanities, and the Project of Comparative Philosophy

ABSTRACT: It is commonly claimed that mind-body dualism is entirely foreign to China—or “the East” more generally.
