CALL FOR PAPERS: Taiwanese Philosophy and the Preservation of Confucian Tradition

Taiwanese Philosophy and the Preservation of Confucian Tradition
International Conference organized by University of Ljubljana, EARL Ljubljana, and TRCCS (Taiwan Research Center for Chinese Studies) in Taipei

10-12 October 2019

Description:
Although the philosophical currents in modern and contemporary Taiwan belong to the most influential and important streams of thought in contemporary East Asian theory, they are still unrecognized as specifically Taiwanese. The main reasons for the immense importance of Taiwanese philosophy for East Asia and the contemporary world are twofold. First, they can be found in its contributions to the preservation of traditional Chinese, especially Confucian thought. Secondly, its development of specific innovative philosophical approaches and systems profoundly influenced the theoretical discourses in the entire East Asian region. The philosophical currents in modern Taiwan were mainly developed during the second half of 20th century, in which the philosophical theory in mainland China was largely limited to the Sinization of Marxist thought. Hence, for many decades, Taiwanese philosophy represented the only driving force of developing, modernizing and upgrading traditional Chinese thought and its syntheses with Western thought. Hence, they soon also gained a wide spread popularity in most of the other East Asian societies that were traditionally influenced by classical Confucian thought, as for example Japan and South Korea.

The conference, organized by Ljubljana University, the EARL in Ljubljana and the TRCCS at the National Central Library in Taipei under the academic leadership by Professor Jana S. Rošker, Ph.D., will bring together leading European and East Asian scholars investigating the thought of Taiwanese philosophers. It aims to introduce their work to the wider international academic public, and to discuss and exchange knowledge regarding their philosophical approaches, ideas and methods. It will furthermore also illuminate the political, social and ideological backgrounds of the specific Taiwanese philosophy.

Call for Contributions: Adventures in Chinese Realism

Two years ago, Eirik Harris (CityU Hong Kong/ Hong Kong Baptist U) and Henry Schneider (CityU Seattle) launched a project called “Adventures in Chinese Realism,” with a twofold aim. First, it is about re-discovering the Classics of Chinese Realism, for example Han Fei, Shen Dao, Guanzi, etc. Second, it is about applying Chinese Realism to actual issues in political philosophy (at large), for example, assessing Confucian revivalism, dealing with so-called corporate ethics, recasting checks and balances, etc.

This adventure consciously reaches beyond the borders of Classical Chinese Philosophy and of philosophy altogether. It engages in a dialogue with other social sciences showing not only that philosophy can contribute to the advancement of other sciences, but also that Chinese Realism is especially relevant in today´s world. As an inclusive series, this series considers work done by established scholars as well as by graduate students and researchers in the early stages of their career.

The series can be taken to the next step. The organizers aim at publishing an edited volume with the materials from the conferences and papers submitted until October 1st, 2018. Any paper covering the applications of Chinese philosophy mentioned above are welcome. Papers should be between 7000 and 10000 words and be accompanied by an abstract of 100 - 200 words. Please send your submissions to henri.schneider [at] protonmail.com (be advised that the organizers will begin evaluating publishers at a later stage of the submission process).

CALL FOR PAPERS for the January 2019 Special issue of the journal Asian Studies, entitled: “From Hegel to Mao and Beyond — the Long March of Sinicizing Marxism”

Focusing on sinization of Marxism as a paradigm for research on Marxist philosophy in contemporary China, the special issue (January 2019) aims to analyze, synthesize and evaluate the concepts, categories, as well as the nature and the backgrounds of this process and its contemporary connotations.

  • Hegelian dialectics, the traditional Chinese principle of correlative complementarity and new dialectical models;
  • Kant, Hegel and Marx through the prism of modern Chinese interpretations;
  • Chinese interpretations of early and late Marx;
  • Intercultural and comparative implications of socialism as a concept and a theory;
  • Neo-Marxist aesthetics in China and abroad;
  • Dialectical materialism and related concepts in Chinese tradition;
  • Ontology, epistemology and phenomenology of sinicized Marxism;
  • The concept of permanent revolution and its connotations;
  • The relational Self and the modern subject in traditional and contemporary Chinese theory;
  • Ethical and political implications of sinicized Marxism;
  • Political and ideological applications/appropriations;
  • Moral and ethical systems behind human relationships in the scope of Marxist studies;
  • Traditional and modern understandings of social justice;
  • The role of trade unions, cooperatives and other alternative forms of self-management;
  • Socialism and communism “with Chinese characteristics”;
  • Collectivism vs. communitarianism;
