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.

The working language of our workshop will be Chinese.

If you happen to be in Taipei and want to participate in our workshop, please send me a brief note: marchal@nccu.edu.tw

    If anyone can provide a rough summary of the topics in English I would be most appreciative!

  2. Kai Marchal says:

    These were quite detailed discussions, so I fear a quick summary would be rather difficult. Among the major findings were (1) a revisionary evaluation of Mou Zongsan’s relation to Hu Shi (and the field of intellectual history more broadly); (2) a new assessment of Mou’s understanding of conscience (Kant’s “Gewissen”) and intellectual intuition, resp. his understanding of self-consciousness and the possibility of reference; (3) a fascinating take on Mou’s view of Buddhism and the Indian debates between idealism and realism and how this view could actually help us re-think the larger issues at stake today.
