The APA has released the latest version of its guide to graduate programs in philosophy. It is searchable by field, and currently only three programs (all MA only) are listed under Asian Philosophy, and none under Comparative Philosophy. I know that the situation is dire, but it isn’t quite *that* dire! This is based on self-reported data, so if your school’s program includes Asian or Comparative Philosophy, you might use the feedback form on the site to ask that this information be included.
Is what I teach considered “philosophy”? I’m assuming the answer is no.
Hi Paul; this is a self-reporting-based list. It might not exercise the same narrow territorial criteria as other lists. It’s worth a try self-reporting your program. If you get any pushback from the APA, I’d like to hear about it.
Great idea! I’ll identify myself and see what happens.
Actually … it’s not that simple:
“data are included only for institutions that completed the Grad Guide survey either this year or last”
Turns out that Penn isn’t even listed! So evidently nobody here filled out the “Grad Guide survey.”
Thanks, Paul. Well, it looks like the list is well-intentioned but not designed for ease of participation. This makes me more inclined to follow through on the list that we had intended to begin on our “The Profession” page ( http://warpweftandway.com/the-profession/ ). If someone wants to set up a wiki for adding and editing program information and links, that would give us a good start. Let me know and I’ll announce location of the wiki. Anyone?
There are a few such lists in various corners of the internet, such as this one (which also doesn’t include me):
So, as Steve notes this is, so far, not as accurate a list as it could be. Maybe people are tired of participating on lists because of the rankings controversies generated recently on those types of lists — well, primarily one other list. I think this APA guide could be a good venue for pushing out information to potential students. Maybe it is worth generating — or revisiting the idea of — our own (non-ranked, of course) list on this blog?
