    Dao as You? Dropping Proper Parthood in a Mereological Reconstruction of Daoist Metaphysics.Rafal Banka - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):97-105.
    In this article, I discuss parthood status in mereologi- cally interpreted Daoist metaphysics, based on the Daodejing. I depart from the dao and you interrela- tion, which mereologically overlap by sharing parts. I consider the case of a complete overlap, which (a) challenges proper parthood, according to which a part cannot be identical with the whole that it com- poses, and (b) entails the question of identity that, while complying with classical mereology, cannot be consis- tent with Daoist metaphysics. The (...)

    Schopenhauer, Existential Negativity, and Buddhist Nothingness.Eric S. Nelson - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):83-96.
    Hegel remarked in his discussion of the nothing in the Science of Logic that: “It is well known that in oriental systems, and essentially in Buddhism, nothing, or the void, is the absolute principle.” Schopenhauer commented in a discussion of the joy of death in The World as Will and Representation: “The existence which we know he willingly gives up: what he gets instead of it is in our eyes nothing, because our existence is, with reference to that, nothing. The (...)

    The Confucian Way of Family Under the Gongfu 功夫 Perspective – A Re-Description.Peimin Ni - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):74-82.
    Unlike typical journal articles that deal with specific issues in detail, this article offers a sketchy comprehensive re-description of the Confucian Way of family that serves the purpose of providing a bird’s-eye view to grasp the fact that, for Confucianism, family is not merely a part of the puzzle of human life, nor merely an ontological entity that serves as the foundation of the Confucian theory, but more a “Way” of living or gongfu 功夫 that comprised of values toward which (...)

    Female Chastity in Confucianism: Genealogy and Radicalization.Ann A. Pang-White - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):50-63.
    Confucian scholars often reference the Yijing 《易經》, the Liji 《禮記》, and other classics in their advocacy for female chastity. Perplexingly, vocabulary that suggests extremism, which often results in self-imposed – or public sanctioned – suicide, starvation, or physical disfigurement of women during the pre-modern China and the early republic, either does not appear or rarely appears in the Yijing or other early Confucian canons. In these early texts, both zhen 貞 and jie 節 have multiple meanings. Neither term is confined (...)

    Gendered Skill: Skill and Knowledge in Weaving and Archery.Lisa Raphals - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):9-21.
    Weaving and archery are strongly gendered skills, and both occur repeatedly in both Chinese and Greek accounts of skill and ethics. I examine both metaphors and narratives that liken these skills to various aspects of ethics, wisdom and government, with particular interest in how or whether the account of the skill reflects the experience of the gender of its typical expert.

  9. He Zhen and the Decolonialization of Feminism.Jana S. Rošker - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):22-35.
    Culturally conditioned differences between women must be seen and theorized about in order to avoid essentialist generalizations about “women’s issues.” In this context, the idea of a universal patriarchal order is questioned, as is the idea of a general, universally equivalent type of feminism. Through analysis of the political philosophy of He Zhen, this paper aims to present a Chinese alternative to liberal feminism based on the assumption that the Western feminist movement might not be a suitable means of abolishing (...)

    “Overcoming Metaphysics”: A Fundamental Feature of Twentieth Century Philosophy.Walter Schweidler - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):65-73.
    The concept of metaphysics has undergone a significant change in the last 200 years. Beginning with Kant, there is a development in which “metaphysics” is no longer understood as a philosophical discipline but as a personal disposition which rather is an object of philosophical reflexion. For Wittgenstein and Heidegger, this has been the starting point of their understanding of the task and the end of the activity called philosophizing. For both thinkers, philosophy depends on an initial presupposition which, in order (...)

  11. Murasaki’s Epistemological Awakening: Buddhist Philosophical Roots of The Tale of Genji.Sandra A. Wawrytko - 2022 - Journal of Chinese Philosophy 49 (1):36-49.
    I approach Murasaki Shikibu’s marvelous literary pearl The Tale of Genji as analogous to glistening orbs that “come out of the disease of suffering oysters,” the suffering being the death of her beloved husband Fujiwara no Nobutaka. In addition to drawing evidence from the novel itself, I have relied on Murasaki’s lesser-known Poetic Memoirs and Diary that offer important insights into her state of mind and circumspect literary style. The Lotus Sūtra is the key that unlocks Murasaki’s philosophical intent, with (...)
