    Ian M. Sullivan (2016). Simone de Beauvoir and Confucian Role Ethics: Role‐Relational Ambiguity and Confucian Mystification. Hypatia 31 (3):620-635.
    This article argues that there has been a general misunderstanding of the nature of role relations in Confucian role ethics. Recasting constitutive role relations in light of Beauvoir's ethics of ambiguity will aid in developing Confucian role ethics as a contemporary vision of human flourishing that can internally accommodate the need for a feminist transformation.

    Ian M. Sullivan (2011). Expanding Process: Exploring Philosophical and Theological Transformations in China and the West (Review). Philosophy East and West 61 (4):741-744.
    Expanding Process: Exploring Philosophical and Theological Transformations in China and the West, by John Berthrong, is a model study of processive motifs in Chinese traditions and their contributions to global process-relational philosophy. Process-relational philosophy, which became a full-fledged school of thought in the twentieth century with the works of Alfred North Whitehead and the American Pragmatists, conceives of reality as constant flux. This metaphysical view is opposed to the substance-ontological view, which understands reality as a composition of timeless, discrete substances, (...)

    Ian M. Sullivan (2010). John Dewey, Confucius, and Global Philosophy (Review). Philosophy East and West 60 (3):427-430.
    The last decade has seen the rapid rise of China as a global power, and the stability of China-U.S. relations has taken on global significance. The two political giants are meeting in the Middle East, Africa, and even Latin America. As Joseph Grange aptly points out, rising tensions over such issues as human rights and national sovereignty are not simply the result of differing political agendas. Underlying cultural assumptions and historical meanings are at the root of these differences, and opening (...)

  7. Ian M. Sullivan (2016). Moral Relativism and Chinese Philosophy: David Wong and His Critics Ed. By Yang Xiao and Yong Huang. Philosophy East and West 66 (4):1381-1385.
    David B. Wong’s 2006 monograph, Natural Moralities: A Defense of Pluralistic Relativism,1 presents and defends a sophisticated and nuanced form of moral relativism that has been in development since his 1984 work, Moral Relativity. The present volume, Moral Relativism and Chinese Philosophy, is a collection of six critical essays focused on Natural Moralities, which are followed by Wong’s responses to each of his critics. I see the greater contribution of this volume, when we consider the title’s conjuncts, to be the (...)
