The Journal of Confucian Philosophy and Culture is happy to announce the publication of Issue 38. This issue includes a Scholar’s Corner section by Eric Schwitzgebel, “Does the Heart Revolt at Evil? The Case of Racial Atrocities,” a set of six essays on a wide range of topics in Confucian philosophy and political theory, featuring contributions that are more historical in nature as well as those focused on the contemporary implications and applications of Confucian philosophy, and a Feature Book Review of Shaun O’Dwyer’s Confucianism’s Prospects: A Reassessment by Yutang Jin.

I recently realized that one could search articles published in the Journal of the American Philosophical Association by the category “Non-Western philosophies,” and that if one did so, the result is not an empty set ;-). See here.
Here are three items related to a censorship issue at Frontiers of Literary Studies in China:
- An article at Inside Higher Education
- A description of the situation by one of the original issue’s co-editors
- An announcement by Brill, terminating its co-publication agreement with Higher Education Press in China, which publishes the “Frontiers of…” journals (including Frontiers of Philosophy in China) in China.
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: http://jcpc.skku.edu/.

Results of the 2017 Dao Annual Best Essay Award
Dao has established “The Annual Best Essay Award” since 2007. In addition to a certificate of achievement, the award comes along with a prize of US$1,000. The award winners are noted in the website of the journal as well as the website of Springer, the publisher of the journal. The award ceremony is held each year at the American Philosophical Association Annual Meeting (Eastern Division) in January, where a special panel on the theme of the award winning essay is held. The critical comments and the author’s responses to them presented at the panel, after revision, will be published in the last issue of Dao each year.
This morning at the APA Pacific there was a wide-ranging discussion on the topic of diversity in philosophy journals. The session was chaired by Eric Schwitzgebel, who introduced it as possibly the largest panel ever at the Pacific APA, featuring 7 presenters including Manyul Im, and 15 journal editor-panelists including Franklin Perkins. The audience was also substantial. Continue reading →
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.
From the Journal of World Philosophies Facebook page:
Professor Nathan Sivin (Pennsylvania) would like to engage with the journal’s readers on the topic ‘Why Some Comparisons Make More Difference than Others’. We invite readers to submit their own short takes on the topic via the OJS site by 15 January 2017. Together with Professor Sivin, the journal’s editorial team will select about 4 respondents on the basis of the submitted abstracts. Abstracts should not exceed more than 250 words. They should include a title, 5-8 keywords, and a short bio.
Thanks to Keith Knapp’s terrific mailing list (which I too frequently fail to credit for things I post here):
Brill has started publishing a new periodical called Bamboo and Silk that contains articles on unearthed bamboo and silk manuscripts from the pre-Qin and early imperial period. See here.
