    State Maternalism: Rethinking Anarchist Readings of the Daodejing.Sarah Flavel & Brad Hall - 2020 - Dao: A Journal of Comparative Philosophy 19 (3):353-369.
    In this article we review Western discourse on the relationship between Daoism and anarchist political theory. In particular, we focus on the anarchist reading of Daoism given by Roger Ames, and the more recent contrasting argument against reading Daoism as an anarchism by Alex Feldt. Centering our discussion on the Daodejing 道德經, we argue that, on the one hand, Laozi’s 老子 political theory is less easily reconcilable with anarchist thinking than Ames suggests.

    Nishitani's Nietzsche: Will to Power and the Moment.Sarah Flavel - 2015 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 46 (1):12-24.
    ABSTRACT This article reviews the current literature on the relationship of the Kyoto School philosopher Keiji Nishitani to Nietzsche's writings. In particular, I respond to Bret Davis's treatment of the relationship between the two thinkers in his 2011 article: “Nishitani after Nietzsche: From the Death of God to the Great Death of the Will.” Through recourse to Nishitani's treatment of Nietzsche in The Self-Overcoming of Nihilism as well as his later work Religion and Nothingness, I dispute the claim that Nishitani's (...)
