Lehigh University 6th Annual Philosophy Conference

Bethlehem PA 18015


Thursday 18 October - Friday 19 October


The Lehigh University Philosophy Department welcomes abstracts of papers from faculty graduate students and independent scholars concerning any aspect of the reception of Asian Philosophy: logical, metaphysical, aesthetical, ethical, and existential. We mean to include both focused discussions of philosophical texts, authors, and schools from within Asian philosophical traditions as well as comparative discussions of the reception of Asian Philosophy within other traditions. 

As philosophers come to see that philosophical traditions are characterized more by the ways in which they are open to transformation than by the ways in which they are constrained by fixed conceptions of what counts as philosophy, philosophical parochialism becomes less defensible and more offensive.We therefore look forward to enjoying the many ways philosophers today have been Receiving Asian Philosophy.
