Daoist Philosophy: Enigmatic Texts

Thursday May 29th, 4-6pm | Segal Theatre, CUNY Graduate Center, 365 5th Ave, NYC

Daoist philosophy has been highly influential in East Asian thought, and is becoming increasingly so in the West.  Yet its texts are often inscrutable. Most notably, they frequently seem to express themselves in contradictions and paradoxes. In this meeting, a number of world experts discuss how to understand this.

Participants:

Mark Csikszentmihalyi (East Asian Languages and Cultures, UC Berkeley)

Yasuo Deguchi (Philosophy, Kyoto University)

Jay Garfield (Philosophy, Yale-NUS College)

Chad Hansen (Philosophy, University of Hong Kong)

Bryan Norden (Philosophy, Vassar College)

Graham Priest (Philosophy, Graduate Center, CUNY)

Robert Sharf (East Asian Languages and Cultures, UC Berkeley)
