CFP: Truth and Asian Philosophy

The Asian Journal of Philosophy is pleased to announce a call for papers for a Topical Collection on “Truth and Asian Philosophy.”

The Asian Journal of Philosophy is a brand new journal that aims to publish high-quality articles in any area of analytic philosophy, including what might be called “Asian analytic philosophy,” which is the journal’s way of referring to engagement with Asian philosophical traditions utilizing analytic philosophical methodologies and vocabularies. The journal aspires to be a leading platform for analytic philosophy in Asia. You can find more information about the journal here: https://www.springer.com/journal/44204

For this Topical Collection on “Truth and Asian Philosophy,” we are interested in papers that engage with questions relating to truth and Asian philosophy. Some sample research topics might include but are certainly not limited to:

  • How is truth as a concept manifested in Asian philosophical traditions?
  • What can cross-cultural inquiries tell us about truth as a philosophical concept?
  • What can we learn about truth from studying Asian traditions?

Papers for the Topical Collection will be published in regular issues of the journal rather than in a dedicated special issue, so we have some flexibility in when we are able to process submissions.

AAR Panel Invitation

As the co-chair of the Confucian Traditions Group in the American Academy of Religion, I wanted to bring to your attention the invitation below to form a panel for the annual conference, which will be held in Denver from 19 November through 22 November. Christopher Yang, a graduate student at Brown University, is the organizer. He can be contacted at christopher_yang@brown.edu for further information. Proposals for the conference are due March 1.

On “Religion” Versus “Philosophy” in the Study of Chinese Texts and Traditions
Ever since Jesuit missionaries cast Confucius as “sinarum philosophus” and Enlightenment thinkers seized on the notion of a people who had arrived at an ethics without recourse to theism, “religion” and “philosophy” have often operated as conjoined yet opposite terms in the analysis of Chinese texts and traditions. Take, for just one example, the longevity of the distinction between philosophical and religious Daoism and the ways in which it has influenced the way we talk about the early Zhuangzi 莊子versus the later Zhen’gao 真告. This panel solicits papers that reflect on the histories and consequences of this distinction in and for research about Chinese materials. How has it governed the reception and organization of our shared objects of study, whether at the local bookstore or the academic conference? What does it mean—and it clearly means different things to different people—to engage our materials qua philosophy, over against religion, and vice versa? What are the historical sources of this distinction and the shapes it has assumed in its application to the Chinese data, and are we helped or hamstrung by it? What, if any, are the alternatives?

CFP: EACP online conference on Chinese Philosophy

The European Association for Chinese Philosophy (EACP) is hosting its first online conference on December 3rd 2021, in the theme of “Chinese Philosophy: Paths Between Convergence and Divergence” (more info here; deadline for submission October 31st).

We are particularly excited for the opportunity afforded by the online medium to get to know scholars of Chinese philosophy who cannot normally travel to Europe for our conferences. We strongly encourage the participation of junior scholars, women, scholars of color, and other groups who aren’t well represented in the fields of Chinese philosophy and Sinology.

I hope we’ll get to see many new faces and that many will get advantage of this opportunity to get to know our association.

You can write Mercedes Valmisa (mvalmisa@gettysburg.edu) and Selusi Ambrogio (selusi.ambrogio@unimc.it) with any questions or suggestions!
