2 PhD Positions on New Confucianism

2 PhD Positions on New Confucianism

The Institute for European Global Studies at the University of Basel invites applications for two PhD positions starting on February 1, 2019. They are part of the research project “The Exterior of Philosophy: On the Practice of New Confucianism” funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). The candidates will complement the research team of Prof. Dr. Ralph Weber and Philippe Major, Ph.D. The research project studies New Confucian philosophy by deploying a sociological perspective for philosophical aims. Existing scholarship has often chosen an approach that is either historical, as in the genre of intellectual history, or philosophical, tuned towards showing the contemporary philosophical relevance of New Confucianism. The current project builds on recent studies that add to these established approaches by offering sociological perspectives on New Confucianism. The project hence breaks new ground in terms of its disciplinary approach beyond the specific context of New Confucianism. Drawing on work done in sociology, the research project explores the possibilities of a sociology of philosophy approached as a philosophical sub-discipline. For more information, see here.

NDPR Review and New Confucianism

A recent book review on NDPR raises issues in the philosophy of Kant that made me think of Mou Zongsan’s New Confucianism, and more particularly, of current Taiwanese philosopher Lee Ming-huei’s efforts to further develop and defend Mou’s views. This is the review:

Jeanine Grenberg, Kant’s Defense of Common Moral Experience: A Phenomenological Account, Cambridge University Press, 2013, 300pp., $99.00 (hbk), ISBN 9781107033580. Reviewed by Patrick Frierson, Whitman College

As you’ll see from the review, Grenberg posits a very strong role for “moral feeling” (about which the reviewer is quite skeptical!). Whether or not this is good Kant, it does sound something like Lee’s reading of Confucianism. For what that is worth!
