CFP: Asian Philosophical Texts: Exploring Hidden Sources
The purpose of the Asian Philosophical Texts series is to publish critical translations of primary sources in Asian philosophical traditions, along with edited volumes or monographs dealing with the philosophical issues of translating them into western languages. By making primary sources of Asian philosophies available to the wider audience in western academia and beyond, this series will offer readers access to diverse intellectual sources written by a broad range of thinkers from various historical periods and intellectual traditions, including the Indian, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese, among others. The translations, accompanied by critical essays, will shed light on major philosophical movements such as Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism and others, thereby providing readers with the most comprehensive picture of the multilayered development of intellectual traditions in Asia. Each text will be accompanied by a substantive introduction, critical notes, and a selective bibliography. Through the series, the editors, in collaboration with leading scholars in the field of comparative and Asian philosophy, aim to represent both the classical heritage and modern developments of the diverse and rich Asian intellectual traditions.
