    • Paul R. Goldin on New Book: Goldin, ed., Routledge Handbook of Early Chinese History

      I was very glad to see the reasonable price that they're charging for the e-book.

    • Scott Barnwell on New Book: Goldin, ed., Routledge Handbook of Early Chinese History

      Routledge has an ebook available for $48.56 USD. I worked for 16 years in the printing industry and have a good idea how much it costs to print a book. The markup of these kinds of books by these publishers...

    • Sungmoon Kim on Tragic passing of Prof. Young Kun Kim (CUNY)

      I've just learned about Professor Kim's tragic death. I met Prof. Kim only once but immediately found him to be a man of curiosity, humor, and passion (even wanting to learn from a much younger scholar!). His last words are...

    • Yong Huang on Tragic passing of Prof. Young Kun Kim (CUNY)

      It is indeed saddening to learn about the tragic death of Dr. Kim. I knew him so well as he was present at almost every meeting of Columbia Seminar on New Confucian Studies for over a decade when I was...

      Great summaries. Thanks to all involved.

    • Paul J. D'Ambrosio on Moeller and D’Ambrosio Lecture at Ghent University

      Hans-Georg Moeller and I have a few more lectures, just in case anyone is around and interested: May 29: "Genuine Pretending and the Formation of Identity" at the Max-Weber-Kolleg, University of Erfurt, Germany June 4: D'Ambrosio: "Active Resonance: A Daoist Critique of...

    • George L. Israel on Change/Clarification to Posts About Recent Publications

      Thanks Stephen. Of course - you all are always inclusive here, and that's great. Just throwing out something I've noticed over the years, the different circles of China scholars, in terms of conferences and journals, and so on....

    • Steve Angle on Change/Clarification to Posts About Recent Publications

      Thanks to Bill's suggestion, I have added The Journal of East-West Thought to the list in my original post. Please let me know if there are others that I've missed.

    • Steve Angle on Change/Clarification to Posts About Recent Publications

      One aspect of this is the question of methodological barriers (a potential response ot which is covered in Tao's essay). Another aspect is more practical: are people with different training aware of potentially relevant scholarship? Given the practical focus of...

    • Tao Jiang on Change/Clarification to Posts About Recent Publications

      Sorry for the shameless self-promotion, my 2016 Dao article, "The Problem of Authorship and the Project of Chinese Philosophy: ZHUANG Zhou and the Zhuangzi between Sinology and Philosophy in the Western Academy," addresses some of the issues involved in that...

    • Larry Israel on Change/Clarification to Posts About Recent Publications

      Thank you for your service to the profession, you really do quite a lot for it. I don't know if others feel this way or have noted this, but I find that there is somewhat of a barrier between what...

    • Alexus McLeod on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      I certainly didn't mean that as a knock on you or your department, Paul (which I think highly of). I was thinking more in general-- some of the projects philosophers tend to engage in would be harder to pursue...

    • Paul R. Goldin on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      I don't see why Alexus says that his work wouldn't fly in my department. I certainly think it would (and I do have some input). Also, it's not just East Asian Studies departments that the report doesn't consider....

    • Steve Angle on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      I agree with Alexus's sense that we should both keep distinctions in mind where they may make a difference, and be inclusive and as helpful to different potential users of the information as possible. One thing that seems obvious...

    • Alexus McLeod on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      I think another relevant consideration in determining whether we should focus specifically on philosophy departments (at least sometimes) turns on projects and methodology. While I certainly agree with Paul that it is possible to study Chinese Philosophy outside of...

    • Benjamin Huff on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      Thanks for the positive report, Paul! I have been quite impressed with how much good philosophy some folks who work on China are doing in other departments. Still, it matters a lot what the prospects are in philosophy departments both...

    • Paul R. Goldin on 2017-18 PGR / Chinese Philosophy Rankings

      For the record, we have a doctoral program here at Penn, and several graduates have produced dissertations on Chinese philosophy. Some of them even get jobs and tenure! (Correction: virtually all of them get jobs and tenure.) ...
