    The golden rule and interpersonal care: From a confucian perspective.Qingjie James Wang - 1999 - Philosophy East and West 49 (4):415-438.
    The traditional Christian version of the Golden Rule, some modern philosophical reformulations, and the Confucian version are compared. It is argued that the Confucian version, in contrast with its Western parallels, is based on shu as bodily or somatic interpersonal care and love, and thus should be understood first of all as a human "way" rather than as a divine rule, a way grounded in the human heart and a way for the human community.

    Thing-ing and No-Thing in Heidegger, Kant, and Laozi.Qingjie James Wang - 2016 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 15 (2):159-174.
    “Thing” and “nothing” are metaphysical themes of thinking for major philosophers both in the West and in East Asia, such as Heidegger, Kant, and Laozi 老子. In light of a discussion of Heidegger’s understanding of thing-ing and no-thing and of his critical interpretation of Kant on the same issue, I shall in this essay reconstruct a Laozian theory of thing and nothing. My conclusion is that thing and nothing are not two “things,” as often assumed by an epistemological approach, but (...)

    On Chinese receptions and translations of Heidegger’s Dasein.Qingjie James Wang - 2020 - Continental Philosophy Review 53 (4):449-463.
    The essay examines three major Chinese translations of Heidegger’s Dasein as cizai, yuanzai and qinzai, and their linguistic and philosophical meanings respectively. Looking at these translations individually, I find that each term has its own strengths, and yet none is without drawbacks. Hence, no single one of them could provide a perfect correlation with the meaning and the linguistic composition of the original German word and Heidegger’s Dasein in all aspects. Only through considering all three translations we will get a (...)

    Genealogical Self and a Confucian Way of Self-Making.Qingjie James Wang - 2002 - International Philosophical Quarterly 42 (1):93-112.
    This paper is a discussion of three approaches popular in contemporary studies of Confucianism for understanding the relationship between the self and others. I argue that all three of the influential conceptions of self that are prominent in these accounts (the “universal self,” the “organic self,” and the “relational self”) still stand in the shadow of the Indo-European metaphysical traditions of self or are insufficient for going beyond that shadow. Based on the ways in which Chinese characters are generated “genealogically,” (...)
