The innagural issue of a new journal has been published: the Journal of East West Thought, edited by John Zijiang Ding. (Correction: in an earlier version of this post, I mistakenly said that this is an on-line journal. It is not, though the full first issue is available on line at the moment.)
Journal of East-West Thought (JET) is published by the International Association for East-West Studies (IAES, http://www.iaesonline.org/ ). As a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing constructive, creative, critical, theoretical and forward-looking thoughts and ideas in East-West studies, it provides a forum for interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, global, and philosophical examinations of all subject matters within East-West studies.
Read on for the Table of Contents of issue 1:1; the full texts of the essays are currently available from the journal’s website. Congratulations to Professor Ding and to everyone associated with this new undertaking!
