Areas of interest
I received my B.A. from Yale University in East Asian Studies and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan. Since 1994 I have taught at Wesleyan University, where I am now Professor of Philosophy. I am finsihing a book on contemporary Confucian political philosophy that both introduces the range of current positions and argues for one of my own, which I call "Progressive Confucianism." Other current interestes include virtue ethics (and its relationship with Confucianism), empirical moral psychology (and its relation with Confucianism), the interpretation of Neo-Confucianism, and the relation between philosophy (Confucian and otherwise) and practice: what is it to do philosophy or be a philosopher?
