    The Birth of Enlightenment Secularism From the Spirit of Confucianism.Dawid Rogacz - 2017 - Asian Philosophy 28 (1):68-83.
    The aim of the essay is to demonstrate that the contact of European philosophy with Chinese thought in the second half of the 17th and 18th century influenced the rise and development of secularism, which became a distinctive feature of the Western Enlightenment. The first part examines how knowing the history of China and Confucian ethics has questioned biblical chronology and undermined faith as a necessary condition of morality. These allegations were afterwards countered by reinterpreting Confucianism as crypto-monotheism. I will (...)

    Historical Materialism in Medieval China: The Cases of Liu Zongyuan (773-819) and Li Gou.Dawid Rogacz - 2021 - Asian Philosophy 31 (4):385-401.
    ABSTRACT It is commonly assumed that historical materialism was first developed by Karl Marx, whose philosophy is often equated with this idea. The following paper challenges this opinion by showing that historical materialism, understood as a general position within the philosophy of history, can be traced back to two generally unheralded Chinese thinkers: Liu Zongyuan and Li Gou.

    Daoism and Environmental Philosophy: Nourishing Life by Eric S. Nelson.Dawid Rogacz - 2021 - Ethics and the Environment 26 (1):141-147.
    It is widely observed that Asian traditions of thought contain the conceptual resources for environmental ethics. Most studies have been devoted to Buddhist environmental ethics, but there have also been monographs that examined its presence in Hinduism, Jainism, and Neo-Confucianism. Quite surprisingly, prior to 2020, there had been no book that explored the most radical and consistently non-anthropocentric form of Asian environmental ethics, namely that of the Daoists. Previous studies analyzed Daoist ecology in general and focused on its manifestation in (...)
