  3. Benjamin I. Huff (forthcoming). Eudaimonism in the Mencius: Fulfilling the Heart. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-29.
    This paper argues that Mencius is a eudaimonist, and that his eudaimonism plays an architectonic role in his thought. Mencius maintains that the most satisfying life for a human being is the life of benevolence, rightness, wisdom, and ritual propriety, and that such a life fulfills essential desires and capacities of the human heart. He also repeatedly appeals both to these and to morally neutral desires in his efforts to persuade others to develop and exercise the virtues. Classical Greek eudaimonists (...)

  6. Brian Bruya (forthcoming). The Tacit Rejection of Multiculturalism in American Philosophy Ph.D. Programs: The Case of Chinese Philosophy. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-21.
    At the confluence of the philosophy of education and social/political philosophy lies the question of how we should educate the next generation of philosophy professors. Part of the question involves how broad such an education should be in order to educate teachers with the ability to, themselves, educate citizens competent to function in a diverse, globalized world. As traditional Western education systems from elementary schools through universities have embraced multicultural sources over the last few decades, philosophy Ph.D. programs have bucked (...)

  10. Eric L. Hutton (forthcoming). On the “Virtue Turn” and the Problem of Categorizing Chinese Thought. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-23.
    A growing number of scholars have come to view Confucians and other Chinese thinkers as virtue ethicists. Other scholars, though, have challenged this classification. This essay discusses some of the problems that surround this debate, points out shortcomings in some of the criticisms that have been made, and offers suggestions about how best to develop a productive discussion about the issue.

  11. Chienkuo Mi (forthcoming). What Is Knowledge? When Confucius Meets Ernest Sosa. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-13.
    In this essay I examine the role that reflection plays in knowledge. I argue that a notion of reflection grounded in ancient Chinese philosophy can help us understand second-order or reflective knowledge in both the accounts of Confucius and Ernest Sosa. I also argue that reflection can help us understand the most ideal kind of knowledge. I begin my paper by laying out Confucius’ and Sosa’s accounts of knowledge, while at the same time drawing the reader’s attention to their common (...)

  12. Eske J. Møllgaard (forthcoming). Political Confucianism and the Politics of Confucian Studies. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-12.
    Through the 1980s Confucian studies in the United States tended to present Confucianism as compatible with liberal democratic values. Since the 1990s, after the rise of China as a global power, Confucianism is increasingly defended as a political alternative to liberal and democratic values. This essay argues that Confucianism is not compatible with liberal democratic values, and that the rise of political Confucianism opposed to liberal democracy is a return to a more authentic Confucianism. Furthermore, it is argued that the (...)

  13. Michael Slote (forthcoming). Virtue’s Turn and Return. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-6.
    Virtue theorizing, long in eclipse, has revived strongly in recent times. However, virtue-type approaches predominate in non-Western cultures and dominated Western thought before the modern period. So the revival can make one wonder whether modern epistemology and ethics do not represent a kind a medieval period relative to these other historical/sociological facts. Why did virtue ethics and epistemology go into eclipse in the West during the modern period? The emerging importance of the individual may represent a kind of shock of (...)

  14. Ernest Sosa (forthcoming). Confucius on Knowledge. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-6.
    An important passage of the Analects will be interpreted. It is perhaps the most important epistemological utterance in the work, yet it is not easy to interpret. Some interpretations are unacceptable because they render the passage trivial. Here we shall explicate the passage in line with contemporary virtue epistemology, so that it says something both interesting and insightful.

  18. Zemian Zheng (forthcoming). Dai Zhen’s Criticism and Misunderstanding of Zhu Xi’s Moral Theory. Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy:1-17.
    Dai Zhen 戴震 criticizes Song-Ming 宋明 Neo-Confucianism, especially Zhu Xi’s 朱熹 dichotomy between principle and desires and his claim that principle is received from Heaven and completely embodied in the heart/mind, as if Zhu advocates asceticism and ultra-intuitionism. This criticism culminates in the accusation of “using principle as a means of killing or persecuting people.” In this paper, I argue that Dai Zhen misunderstands Zhu Xi’s moral theory and does not do him justice. At some point Dai’s criticism is similar (...)
