Guo Qiyong, Dean of School of Chinese Classics at Wuhan University and eminent authority on Chinese philosophy, recently published a scathing critique of the Chinese education system titled “The Humanistic Spirit of Universities is Being Lost with Each Passing Day.” Guo identifies three trends that harm humanities education:
A paper by Lawrence Whitney about Paul Tillich’s “Protestant Principle” as it registers in Confucianism was published in the Bulletin of the North American Paul Tillich Society with responses by Bin Song and Heup Young Kim, and then Whitney’s response to the respondents.

We would like to bring to your attention a research project on the Sociology of modern Confucian philosophy based at the Institute for European Global Studies of the University of Basel (Switzerland). The research group, one of the largest specialized in the study of modern Confucianism outside East Asia, seeks to provide new perspectives on modern Confucianism by deploying sociological approaches for philosophical aims. The group is composed of Ralph Weber, Philippe Major, Yim Fong Chan, and Milan Matthiesen. More information about the research project can be found at the following address: https://europa.unibas.ch/en/research/european-global-knowledge-production/the-exterior-of-philosophy/.
The research group would like to hear from researchers who share similar interests. Those interested in sharing their research or in finding more about the project are invited to write to Philippe Major at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edward Slingerland writes:
” I’ve moved to the Philosophy department at UBC and am hoping to introduce a course on virtue ethics, I’d like to read all the standard Western theory (Murdoch, MacIntyre, etc.), do a little Aristotle, but also spend time on the early China Confucians. Does anyone teach anything like this? Looking to steal some ideas from other peoples’ syllabi… If so, please email me at email@example.com.”
Critique, Subversion, and Chinese Philosophy has been published by Bloomsbury.
