  2. Tomomi Asakura (forthcoming). Philosophy of Doctrinal Classification: Kōyama Iwao and Mou Zongsan. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-16.
    Doctrinal classification or the panjiao 判教 system of Chinese Buddhism has been rediscovered and renewed in modern East Asian philosophy since both the Kyoto School and New Confucianism clarified the philosophical meaning of this intellectual tradition. The theoretical relation between these two modern reconsiderations, however, has not yet been studied. I analyze the theory of panjiao in Kōyama Iwao 高山岩男 (1905–1993) and Mou Zongsan 牟宗三 (1909–1995) so as to identify and extract, despite their apparent irrelevance, the same type of philosophical (...)

  5. Benedict S. B. Chan (forthcoming). A Human Rights Debate on Physical Security, Political Liberty, and the Confucian Tradition. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-22.
    There are many East and West debates on human rights. One of them is whether all civil and political rights are human rights. On one hand, scholars generally agree that rights to physical security are human rights. On the other hand, some scholars argue that rights to political liberty are only Western rights but not human rights because political liberty conflicts with some East Asian cultural factors, especially the Confucian tradition. I argue that physical security also conflicts with some parts (...)

  7. Ching-Yuen Cheung (forthcoming). Nishida Kitarō's Philosophy of Body. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-17.
    In this paper, I shall discuss Nishida’s 西田 philosophy of body from the aspects of acting intuition, rhythm, and situatedness. Pure experience used to be the starting point of Nishida’s early philosophy. In his later philosophy, however, the keyword in Nishida’s philosophy is no longer “experience” but “acting.” It is neither “I think therefore I am” nor “I will therefore I am,” but “I act therefore I am.” As the organ of acting intuition, body is one of the most important (...)

  8. Chris Fraser (forthcoming). Wandering the Way: A Eudaimonistic Approach to the Zhuāngzǐ. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-25.
    The paper develops a eudaimonistic reading of the Zhuāngzǐ 莊子 on which the characteristic feature of a well-lived life is the exercise of dé 德 (potency, virtuosity) in a general mode of activity labeled yóu 遊 (wandering). I argue that the Zhuāngzǐ presents a second-order conception of agents’ flourishing in which the life of dé is not devoted to predetermined substantive ends or activities with a specific substantive content. Rather, it is marked by a distinctive manner of activity and certain (...)

  14. Pauline C. Lee (forthcoming). Two Confucian Theories on Children and Childhood: Commentaries on the Analects and the Mengzi. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-16.
    In this article I uncover, describe, and analyze two native Chinese theories by way of exploring the commentarial tradition through the centuries on two passages from Confucian classics: Mengzi 孟子 4B12 and Analects 論語 11.25. One view I explore is of the child as a cluster of role-specific duties, whereupon debates regard proper behavior for a junior in society; a second conception is of the child as an existential quality to be preserved or rediscovered, or a special stage in life (...)

  15. Chen-kuo Lin (forthcoming). Nishitani on Emptiness and Historical Consciousness. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-16.
    This essay focuses on Nishitani Keiji’s 西谷啟治 early and late thinking, in the discourse on world history and modernity during wartime and the postwar meditation on emptiness and historicity in Religion and Nothingness. Following the first part of the analysis, I will trace Nishitani’s critical indebtedness to Heidegger’s existential-phenomenological analysis of historicity in Being and Time, and thereby analyze how Nishitani attempts to solve the aporia of modernity by recourse to the Buddhist doctrine of emptiness. The essay will conclude with (...)

  16. Curtis A. Rigsby (forthcoming). Three Strands of Nothingness in Chinese Philosophy and the Kyoto School: A Summary and Evaluation. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-21.
    The concept of Nothingness—Japanese mu or Chinese wú 無—is central both to the Kyoto School (Kyōto gakuha 京都学派) and to important strands of Chinese philosophy. The Kyoto School, which has been active since the 1930s, is arguably modern Japan’s most philosophically sophisticated challenge to Western thought. Further, as contemporary East Asia continues to rise in importance, East Asians and Westerners alike are beginning to consider anew the contemporary philosophical relevance of Confucianism, Daoism, and East-Asian Buddhism. These originally Chinese traditions were (...)
