    Watsuji on Nature: Japanese Philosophy in the Wake of Heidegger by David W. Johnson.Steve Bein - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-4.
    There is a certain irony in Japan's foremost secular philosopher grounding his ontology and ethics in a term so infamously unclear as fūdo 風土, given that the Japanese word for philosophy itself denotes "clear thinking." One might make the case that Watsuji's concept of fūdo cannot but be unclear, since he is responding to Heidegger's Being and Time, which is hardly the model of lucid philosophy. That said, it is the philosopher's responsibility to clarify the unclear, and that is the (...)

    Existential Rehabituations From a Latinx Perspective: On Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism.Martina Ferrari - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):268-277.
    … philosophy must be a practice as much as it is a theory.Leah Kalmanson, Cross-Cultural Existentialism, p. 1In the face of the sheer quantity of life's uncertainties, Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism provides more than a novel take on existential theory ; following the mantra of European existentialists that "philosophies are meant to be lived," Cross-Cultural Existentialism introduces the reader to a series of practices central to the Ruist tradition required to make philosophy "a concrete attitude, a way of life". Kalmanson's (...)

    Philosophy as a Transformative Practice: A Review of Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism. [REVIEW]Boram Jeong - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):258-268.
    Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism: On the Meaning of Life in Asian and Western Thought develops what the author calls 'speculative existentialism' by challenging the metaphysical assumptions behind the existential inquiry in the West. The author turns to East Asian thought—Ruism in particular—questioning the "problematic understanding of subjective interiority" that remains in European existentialism despite its efforts to subvert subject-object dualism. The author writes, "my book is ultimately about the radical existential vision of Ruism, a tradition that has, in general, received (...)

    Wild Dreams: Cultivating Change in and with Community.Leah Kalmanson - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):290-293.
    I am truly humbled and astounded to find myself the grateful recipient of the wise insight, critical engagement, and creative elaboration provided by the three readers of my book, Boram Jeong, Martina Ferrari, and Eric S. Nelson.I begin with Boram Jeong's attention to the decolonizing trajectory of the book. Throughout my writing process, I sought to enact the provincialization of Europe1 by decentering Eurocentric discourse and, at times, actively ignoring it. The result, I suspected, would be that my very theories (...)

    Indian Perspectives on Consciousness, Language and Self: The School of Recognition on Linguistics and Philosophy of Mind by Marco Ferrante.Mrinal Kaul - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-6.
    Indian Perspectives on Consciousness, Language and Self by Marco Ferrante explores theories of consciousness by examining the non-dual philosophy of Recognition mainly represented by the two philosophers Utpaladeva and Abhinavagupta, and also carefully concludes that the trajectory of their ideas have compelling influence from Bhartṛhari and his commentator Helārāja. No philosophy ever evolves and develops in a void. No philosophical tradition or theory functions in oblivion. In the history of philosophy in South Asia, this is also true of the traditions (...)

    Flowers Blooming on a Withered Tree, the most recent addition to Steven Heine's outstanding body of publications on doctrinal, historical, and textual studies of the meditative school, introduces a genre of Zen writings that has previously been largely neglected in the West. It presents annotated translations, interpretative explanations, and additional illuminating chapters relating to Verse Comments on the Treasury of the True Dharma Eye written by monk Giun 義雲, the fifth abbot of Eiheiji temple, which was established a generation prior (...)

    The Contemplative Foundations of Classical Daoism by Harold D. Roth.Ronnie Littlejohn - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-3.
    In this collection, Harold Roth brings together the pivotal essays representing both the innovation and expertise that have marked his scholarship on Daoism for roughly the last twenty-five years. It is Roth's position that the foundations of classical Daoism rest upon a distinctive set of contemplative practices that he calls "inner training," which can be found in the Neiye, Laozi, and Zhuangzi, but also in a number of other classical texts of mixed traditions, including the Lushi chunqiu 呂氏春秋 and the (...)

    The Oxford Handbook of Japanese Philosophy Ed. By Bret W. Davis.Steve G. Lofts - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-6.
    The Oxford Handbook of Japanese Philosophy is by all counts an ambitious work. Its primary goal is to provide the reader with a foundational framework in which to engage interpretively the tradition of Japanese philosophy. It would be impossible to summarize, let alone do justice to, the thirty-six rich and illuminating chapters written by many of the most prominent scholars in the field from Japan, Europe, Australia, and North America.Navigating between the "violence of inclusion" that would reduce the philosophically other (...)

    Nietzsche and the Last Pope: Changing the Paradigm, or the End of Al-Millah.Fethi Meskini & Ghazouane Arslane - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):139-165.
    This essay juxtaposes the death of the moral god in Christian Europe (Nietzsche) with the demise of al-millah or the theologico-political community in Islam. This comparative engagement allows for a local (Arab Muslim) and universal rethinking of, inter alia, faith, freedom, and transcendence beyond terrorism and methodological atheism.

    Existence, Emptiness, and Qi: Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism.Eric S. Nelson - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):278-289.
    Leah Kalmanson's Cross-Cultural Existentialism offers an original and provocative interpretation of existentialist themes and threads running through classical and modern East Asian Buddhist and Ruist philosophical sources. The book takes its point of departure in existential questions concerning meaningfulness and meaning-formative practices, as articulated in European existentialism and postexistentialism, and traces how these questions are and can be addressed in their own terms in dharmic and Song dynasty Ruist discourses of karma, vital force, and ritual propriety. The book elucidates existential (...)

    Nishida Kitarō's Philosophy of Life by Tatsuya Higaki.Kyle Peters - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-3.
    In Nishida Kitarō's Philosophy of Life, Tatsuya Higaki offers a highly novel and compelling reading of Nishida's philosophy by placing it in dialogue with the life philosophy of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. The philosophical core of the book consists of six chapters, chronologically proceeding from Nishida's early work on "pure experience" in 1911, through middle and late-middle period concepts like "self-awareness," "place," "absolute nothingness," and "acting intuition," and finally to his late-period work on "absolute contradictory selfidentity" before his death (...)

    Meta-Theories, Interpretability, and Human Nature: A Reply to J. David Velleman.Hagop Sarkissian - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):252-257.
    My thanks to David Velleman for a clear and constructive response to my comment. He raises two issues that might benefit from some further brief remarks. The first concerns the error-theory I put forth to explain why the early Confucians were not relativists. The second concerns the extent to which the Confucian notion of harmony is at odds with Velleman's notion of interpretability or coherence. I consider each in turn, below.

    Well-Functioning Daos and Moral Relativism.Hagop Sarkissian - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):230-247.
    What are the nature and status of moral norms? And what makes individuals abide by them? These are central questions in metaethics. The first concerns the nature of the moral domain—for example, whether it exists independently of what individuals or groups think of it. The second concerns the bindingness or practical clout of moral norms—how individuals feel impelled to abide by them.1 In this article, I bring two distinct approaches to these questions into dialogue with one another.The first of these (...)

    Philosophy of Science and the Kyoto School: An Introduction to Nishida Kitaro, Tanabe Hajime and Tosaka Jun by Dean Anthony Brink.Dennis Stromback - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-4.
    There is certainly a lot of academic buzz these days around the relationship between Buddhism and physics. Of course, as we learned from Donald Lopez's famed book Buddhism and Science, there is a long history, beginning in the nineteenth century, to this proclamation that Buddhism is compatible with modern day science. Indeed, Dean Anthony Brink's book Philosophy of Science and the Kyoto School: An Introduction to Nishida Kitaro, Tanabe Hajime and Tosaka Jun is one of many contemporary examples of this (...)

    Every author cares about being understood, but for reasons that Hagop Sarkissian has explained, I can be expected to care more than most. I'm delighted to say that Sarkissian has understood my book thoroughly and provided an accurate and charitable summary. I am also delighted to learn from him how closely my view echoes strains of classical Confucianism.I was especially interested by Sarkissian's characterization of my view as implying that "morals do indeed seem to collapse to mores, or perhaps mores (...)

    Repentance and the Return to God: Tawba in Early Sufism by Atif Khalil.Ali Hassan Zaidi - 2022 - Philosophy East and West 72 (1):1-4.
    Is translation of a particular concept from one religious-linguistic tradition into another possible? If so, how much precision and nuance is possible in translation? Even if the problem of translating between religious-linguistic traditions is removed, we are still confronted with the question of how a particular concept is understood differently across vast stretches of time and space within a particular tradition. Atif Khalil's Repentance and the Return to God: Tawba in Early Sufism addresses these fundamental questions in a particularly salient (...)
