I am happy to announce that Stephen Grimm (Fordham), Meghan Sullivan (Notre Dame), and I have received a grant from the NEH to run a 2-week Summer Institute in July 2018 called “Reviving Philosophy as a Way of Life.” We will be drawing on Confucian and Buddhist traditions, among others. Some more details are here; I will announce here at Warp, Weft, and Way when applications open, later in the fall, in case anyone is interested.
Interestingly, if Justin at Daily Nous is correct, then the only two NEH Summer Seminars or Institutes awarded to philosophers both have significant non-Western components (the other one is “Self-Knowledge in Eastern and Western Philosophies Project” directed by Christian Coseru and colleagues).
This is wonderful movement in a very important direction. Thank you!
Congratulations, Steve. I’m sure many will be interested in applying.
Looks like an awesome project. Congrats on the grant!
