Workshop on Mou Zongsan in Taipei: June 16, 2020

Dear colleagues,

hereby I would like to notify you of a workshop on “Mou Zongsan and Contemporary Philosophy” taking place this tuesday (June 16) at National Chengchi University in Taipei. The aim of this workshop is to re-think the legacy of one of the most important thinkers in the Chinese-speaking world in the 20th century, Mou Zongsan (1909-1995). In our global present, it is more urgent than ever to critically assess non-Western intellectual traditions and to understand better whether (and if so, how) these traditions can be defended philosophically effectively without falling into the traps of mere apologetics or cultural nationalism. The speakers will focus on central philosophical issues in Mou’s thinking, f.ex. “intellectual intuition”, “self-consciousness”, and “experience” and their potential relevance for contemporary philosophy.
