Global Philosophy: Call for contributions

Global Philosophy,, provides easy to use resources for faculty members who are interested in diversifying their teaching but who lack training in nonwestern philosophy.  We are looking for contributors. 

Each entry should introduce a nonwestern text that would be suitable for inclusion in a lower-level undergraduate class.  It should provide an approximately 100-word description of the text, a brief annotated bibliography, a brief list of available translations, and a few selections for texts to pair it with.  For examples, see the site.  We’re including entries for full texts like the Gita as well as for selections from texts or specific topics like no-self in Questions of King Milinda.

Notice that we are keeping each entry very short!  This site aims to connect users with relevant primary and secondary material; it is not a substitute for such materials or a substantial addition to them.

To submit a proposal, please use this link or select “Contribute” on the web page, and if you have questions, please contact one of us.
