    Nicholaos Jones (forthcoming). Correlative Reasoning About Water in Mengzi 6A2. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-15.
    Mengzi 孟子 6A2 contains the famous water analogy for the innate goodness of human nature. Some evaluate Mengzi’s reasoning as strong and sophisticated; others, as weak or sophistical. I urge for more nuance in our evaluation. Mengzi’s reasoning fares poorly when judged by contemporary standards of analogical strength. However, if we evaluate the analogy as an instance of correlative thinking within a yin-yang 陰陽 cosmology, his reasoning fares well. That cosmology provides good reason to assert that water tends to flow (...)

    Erin M. Cline (forthcoming). The Boundaries of Manners: Ritual and Etiquette in Early Confucianism and Stohr’s On Manners. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-15.
    Early Confucian philosophy affirms and lends support to Karen Stohr’s argument that manners are a primary means by which we express moral attitudes and commitments and carry out important moral goals. Indeed, Confucian views on ritual can extend her insights even further, both by highlighting the role that manners play in cultivating good character and by helping us to probe the conceptual boundaries of manners. The various things that we call etiquette, social customs, and rituals do much of the same (...)

    Hui Jin & Edward H. Spence (forthcoming). Internet Addiction and Well-Being: Daoist and Stoic Reflections. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-17.
    This article explores the phenomenon of Internet addiction and its possible amelioration, from both Eastern and Western philosophical perspectives. Internet addiction is caused by the excessive use of the Internet and its resulting dependence, having negative effects on human well-being. The ideas of a key ancient Chinese Daoist thinker Zhuangzi 莊子 and his Western contemporaries, the Stoics, as viewed through the world, the things and beings in it, and their relationships, offer insights which may be used to alleviate these effects. (...)

    Amy Olberding (forthcoming). Martha and the Masters: Virtuous Domestic Aesthetic Activity. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-15.
    In this essay, I draw Karen Stohr’s work on the moral-aesthetic elements of hospitality into conversation with classical Confucianism. While the early Confucians would not deny the other-regarding elements of hospitality Stohr emphasizes, they also notably highlight the ways exercises in taste and skillful aesthetic activity can work on and for the agent herself, providing a sensibility that can guard domestic aesthetic activity against problematic forms of self-sacrifice and alienated labor that color contemporary gendered representations of the home and its (...)

    Karen Stohr (forthcoming). Viewing Manners Through a Wider Lens. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-18.
    I take up reflections on my book, On Manners, by Professors Van Norden, Cline, and Olberding. In response to Professor Van Norden, I further explain and defend my employment of Kant, arguing that Kantianism offers distinctive and valuable resources for thinking about manners. I suggest similarities between Kant and Xunzi 荀子. In response to Professor Cline, I take up the question of the developmental function of manners and explore in further detail the ways in which our social roles both give (...)

    Winnie Sung (forthcoming). Xiang Yuan : The Appearance-Only Hypocrite. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-18.
    This article seeks to interpret Mencius’ criticism of the village worthies and shed light on the distinctive psychological phenomenon that Mencius has captured but not quite articulated. An attempt at filling out the Mencian view of the village worthies will help us better understand the content of the moral charges made against them and also deepen our analysis of the kind of psychology that early Confucians regard as crucial to moral agency. Following an introduction that overviews Mencius’ criticisms of the (...)

    Bryan W. Van Norden (forthcoming). Principles, Virtues, or Detachment? Some Appreciative Reflections on Karen Stohr’s On Manners. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-13.
    Karen Stohr’s book On Manners argues persuasively that rules of etiquette, though conventional, play an essential moral role, because they “serve as vehicles through which we express important moral values like respect and consideration for the needs, ideas, and opinions of others”. Stohr frequently invokes Kantian concepts and principles in order to make her point. In Part 2 of this essay, I shall argue that the significance of etiquette is better understood using a virtue ethics framework, like that of (...)

    Qingjie James Wang (forthcoming). Thing-Ing and No-Thing in Heidegger, Kant, and Laozi. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-16.
    “Thing” and “nothing” are metaphysical themes of thinking for major philosophers both in the West and in East Asia, such as Heidegger, Kant, and Laozi 老子. In light of a discussion of Heidegger’s understanding of thing-ing and no-thing and of his critical interpretation of Kant on the same issue, I shall in this essay reconstruct a Laozian theory of thing and nothing. My conclusion is that thing and nothing are not two “things,” as often assumed by an epistemological approach, but (...)
