    Ancient Chinese Proofs for the Existence of Gods: The Case of Mohism.Gabriel Andrus - 2021 - Asian Philosophy 31 (2):105-120.

    Yunjidang’s Feminism and Gender Equality.Hye-Kyung Kim - 2021 - Asian Philosophy 31 (2):143-159.
    ABSTRACT The received view is that Yunjidang’s feminist philosophy focuses on female sagehood, drawing on the theory of the equal human nature of women and men. I argue that there is much more to it than that, and that her views are anchored in and a development of Mengzi’s philosophy. She creatively interpreted and extended his philosophy, adopting the neo-Confucian metaphysics of the One and the Many. She argued not just for the potential but for the actual gender equality of (...)
