Theme

Globalizing Japanese Philosophy: From East Asia to the World

Languages

English, Japanese and Chinese

Synopsis

This second annual international conference for IAJP aims at 1) further reinforcing Japanese philosophy as a global academic discipline; 2) exploring the potential of Japanese philosophy in its interface with the various philosophical traditions of East Asia, including, but not limited to, Confucianism, Buddhism and Daoism; and 3) developing a solid research network within East Asia for the field of Japanese philosophy in order to facilitate its promotion across the world.

Riding on the wave of the very successful first international meeting of IAJP in 2016, IAJP’s second international conference will continue the promotion and development of Japanese philosophy globally. Although the reception of and confrontation with Western philosophy remains on the agenda of the 2017 conference, the IAJP also seeks to explore the comparatively underdeveloped but indeed important connection between Japanese philosophy and the philosophical traditions of East Asia. The philosophical and cultural diversity that Taiwan embraces will definitely provide conference participants an opportunity for inspiring intellectual exchange involving the people of Taiwan and scholars of Japanese philosophy from East Asia as well as other parts of the world. This conference welcomes proposals for critical and insightful presentations that challenge the study of Japanese philosophy through a re-reading and reconfiguring of related philosophical texts and issues, from the perspectives of Western as well as Eastern philosophical traditions. This conference specifically encourages young scholars to submit their proposals.  Topics may cover any period, figure, or context pertaining to Japanese philosophy and thought.
