Chinese and Comparative Philosophy 中國哲學與比較哲學

Center for Comparative Philosophy (Duke University)

The Center for Comparative Philosophy (CCP) at Duke was inaugurated in 2014 and is dedicated to teaching and research into the philosophies that animate different traditions.  From the Center’s introductory statement:

We live in multicultural, multiethnic, cosmopolitan worlds. Different traditions rest on different philosophies — different metaphysics, epistemologies, and ethics, sometimes different views of the nature of persons and the human good.  Understanding alternative philosophies that are lived by different people is a necessary condition for tolerant living.  But more importantly it is a wonderful tool for philosophical imagination, for exploring the resources in other traditions for better thinking about the nature of things, human knowledge, the good life, and politics.
