ISCP Report

ISCP Executive Director JeeLoo Liu has shared the following report:

The 21st Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP) concluded on July 5th. This conference was held in Bern, Switzerland, and we have had beautiful weather in addition to the scenery city sights. The theme of this conference was Reality, Argumentation, and Persuasion : Metaphysical Explorations and Epistemological Engagements in Chinese Philosophy. The three and a half day conference included 230 papers, 145 of which were uploaded for inside viewing by the time the conference started on July 2nd. A different format for this conference was that instead of giving individual talks, the five invited keynote speakers (Paul Unschuld, Karine Chemla, Guorong Yang, Karyn Lai, and Jenny Zhao) formed two panels for short presentations and extensive discussion. The conference contained fruitful exchanges among scholars from different countries, and also provided the opportunity for many scholars from afar to explore the Swiss Alps during their free time.
