Call for Papers: Confucianism: Comparisons and Controversies
Professors Eirik Harris (Hong Kong Baptist University) and Henrique Schneider (Nordakademie) are guest editing volume 8.2 of the Journal Culture and Dialogue (Brill).
The guest editors seek 7-10 papers of high quality on topics related to Chinese philosophy, particularly engaging with all different types of Confucianism. This can occur from a perspective rooted within Chinese philosophy as well as in a comparative approach. The guest editors seek to put together a diverse special issue covering Classical Confucianism as well as contemporary themes for an audience that includes non-specialists in Chinese philosophy.
The guest editors are especially looking for contributions on:
– Virtues and the state of (Chinese) philosophy of virtues
– Virtue politics and its limits
– Virtue as an ideal vs. realistic approach in ethics, political theory, and international relations
– The relationship between virtues and rituals
– Philosophy of rituals: past, present, and future
– Meritocracy and roles
– The virtues and vices of meritocracy
– Different versions of meritocracy in Chinese (and Confucian) philosophies
– Contemporary issues in Confucianism
– Contemporary philosophical criticisms of Confucianism
If you are interested in submitting, send you abstract, draft paper, or full paper until March 15th to Henrique Schneider (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Eirik Harris (email@example.com). Once accepted, final versions of the papers will be due June 1st.
