    Mind and Space: A Confucian Perspective.Xunwu Chen - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):1-15.
    This essay explores the Confucian concept of the space of the mind and the Confucian view on cultivation of the space of mind. It then argues that the distinction between the mind as a mental substance and the body as a material substance is that the mind can be infinitely extended while the body can only extended to a certain limit.

    Confucianism, Food, and Sustainability.Jan Erik Christensen - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):16-29.
    This paper addresses the issue of ecological sustainability and the dilemma between instrumental rationality and protection of the environment through a discussion of food production. In Confucianism, all human activities, including consumption of food, are seen as inseparable from problems of value. While Confucianism stresses the importance of healthy food, it rejects viewing nature as only having instrumental value. The Confucian view of sustainability can be seen from three parts: Humans should follow the murmuring of their 'heart/mind' and seek to (...)

    Imagination in the Zhuangzi: The Madman of Chu’s Alternative to Confucian Cultivation.Paul J. D’Ambrosio - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):30-42.
    This paper examines the role of the imagination in the Zhuangzi. There are many avenues through which the various types of imaginations in the Zhuangzi could be investigated, but this paper will concentrate on only one, namely the use of imagination to criticize Confucius’ way. Specifically, the Zhuangzi finds Confucius’ views on virtuosity, moral cultivation, and social roles to include exceedingly limited imagined restrictions. The Daoist classic thereby creates stories to inspire the imagination of its readers, with the goal of (...)

    May One Murder the Innocent for the Sake of Faith in God or Filial Piety to Parents? A Comparative Study of Abraham’s and Guo’s Stories.Qingping Liu - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):43-58.
    Through a comparative analysis of the stories of Abraham and Guo, this article tries to argue that some particularistic claims of Christianity and Confucianism, which regard faith in God or filial piety to parents respectively as the sole ultimate principle of human life, may constitute the spiritual mainstay of such serious evils as murdering the innocent in certain in-depth paradoxes. Only by assigning a supreme position to their universal ideas of loving all humans through their self-transformations could the two ethico-religious (...)

    Buddhist Idealism and the Problem of Other Minds.W. Perrett Roy - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):59-68.
    This essay is concerned with Indian Yogācāra philosophers’ treatment of the problem of other minds in the face of a threatened collapse into solipsism suggested by Vasubandhu’s epistemological argument for idealism. I discuss the attempts of Dharmakīrti and Ratnakīrti to address this issue, concluding that Dharmakīrti is best seen as addressing the epistemological problem of other minds and Ratnakīrti as addressing the conceptual problem of other minds.

    Chinese Modernization and the Sinification of Marxism Through the Lens of Li Zehou’s Philosophy.Jana Rosker - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 27 (1):69-84.
    Li Zehou belongs to the most well-known and influential contemporary Chinese philosophers of our time. Since he is one of the exiled intellectuals, his work has also acquired a wide readership outside China. Working mostly in the fields of classical Chinese philosophy and Chinese aesthetics, he dedicated himself to the task of finding a suitable and sensible way of harmonizing past and present, tradition and modernity, China and the West. Hence, he attempted to create a synthesis between early Marxist and (...)
