This is an opportunity to discuss Chinese Philosophy in a relaxed and informal setting. The goal is to create a space of exchange and learning that will enable all to join and get something from it. The meetings are open to all students and faculty-level teachers anywhere with an interest in Chinese Philosophy.
No previous knowledge of Chinese thought and language is required, as we will use English translations of the classics. It will however be one of the goals of the reading group to develop an awareness of the particular meanings of certain Chinese terms, so as to not lose too much in translation.
