Results of Survey on teaching Chinese Philosophy

Back in 2009 and 2010, Minh Nguyen surveyed a wide range of instructors of course on Chinese philosophy to learn about the challenges they faced and about resources they found particularly useful. He has now published the survery data in the Fall 2011 Newsletter of the APA Committee on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies. He and Manyul Im are working on an essay extracting lessons from the survey, but in the meantime, discussion of its results are welcome here.

  1. Just a quick clarification follow-up note: I was not actually party to the initiation and development of the survey, though I remember being one of the many people actually surveyed. Minh approached me after the survey was complete to collaborate with him in digesting the data and writing up an essay about it. Both Minh and I would certainly welcome comments and discussion from anyone, of course.

  2. I haven’t read the whole thing, but one thing that jumped out is the desire for better translations. I’d certainly like to see a replacement for Chan’s source book. Any takers?
