New Journal and Article on Birth of “Philosophy” in Japan

Tetsugaku: International Journal of the Philosophical Association of Japan is an interesting-looking new journal, and its first issue contains an article called The Birth of Philosophy as 哲學 (Tetsugaku) in Japan.” The article scrutinizes the history of the introduction of the subject from Holland to Japan, the coinage and application of the term tetsugaku (zhexue in Chinese), and its adoption in China during the late-nineteenth century. The article explains a lot about subtle changes in its coverage and nuance during the process. The journal and article are available from the following link:

This open-access journal also welcomes submissions of papers written in English, French or German. Please refer to the document at the bottom of the page.
