The 22nd International Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP)
Chinese Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy
世界哲学视域中的中国哲学
July 5–8, 2021, East China Normal University, Shanghai, China
Call for Papers

The 22nd International Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP) will be held at East China Normal University (ECNU) in Shanghai, China during July 5 – 8, 2021. The conference is hosted by ISCP, the Institute of Modern Chinese Thought & Culture at ECNU, the Department of Philosophy at ECNU, and the Shanghai Association of Comparative Study on Chinese-Western Philosophy and Culture.
Conference Theme
The conference theme is “Chinese Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy.” Following the spread of Western philosophy in the East and the encounter between Chinese and Western thought, Chinese philosophy started gaining a global perspective. Broadly speaking, “globalness” includes two significant implications. On the one hand, the accumulated achievements of Chinese philosophical thought may provide constructive theoretical resources for the further advancement of world philosophy; furthermore, in this process Chinese philosophy itself will gradually reveals its global meaning. On the other hand, other philosophical traditions in the world (firstly, the Western philosophical traditions), also provide a broad referencing and perspectival viewpoints for the development of Chinese philosophy. Moreover, both in substance and in form, the other philosophical traditions continuously enable Chinese philosophy to obtain new forms of expression, which alternatively manifests both the creativeness and the openness of Chinese philosophy. An unavoidable issue in the study of Chinese philosophy concerns how to care about, and learn from, the wisdom of other philosophical traditions and resources, while at the same time exhibiting its own unique significance in today’s world. The 22nd conference of the International Society of Chinese Philosophy aims to advance this line of thinking.
Under the general theme of “Chinese Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy,” the subthemes include, but are not limited to, the following:
(1) What is World Philosophy?
(2) How Does Chinese Philosophy Participate in Worldwide Debates of Different Philosophical Traditions?
(3) Philosophical Reflection on World History
(4) Chinese Philosophy and Eastern Philosophy
(5) Meaning and Limit of Comparative Philosophy
(6) Chinese Philosophy and Analytic Philosophy
(7) Chinese Philosophy and Phenomenology
(8) Chinese Philosophy and Pragmatism
(9) Confucian Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy
(10) Daoist Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy
(11) Buddhist Philosophy from the Perspective of World Philosophy
(12) Chinese Philosophy and World Philosophy in the Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Eras

第22届国际中国哲学大会
世界哲学视域中的中国哲学
中国·上海·华东师范大学 2021年7月5-8日
参会论文征集公告

第22届国际中国哲学大会将于2021年7月5-8日,在上海华东师范大学举行。本次大会由国际中国哲学会(ISCP,International Society for Chinese Philosophy)、华东师范大学中国现代思想文化研究所、华东师范大学哲学系、上海中西哲学与文化比较研究会等单位共同主办。

会议主题
第22届国际中国哲学大会会议的主题是“世界哲学视域中的中国哲学”。随着西方哲学的东渐及中西哲学的相遇,中国哲学开始获得世界性的维度。所谓世界性,宽泛而言,包含二重涵义,一方面,中国哲学所积累的思维成果,可以为世界哲学的进一步发展提供建设性的理论资源,而它本身也将在这一过程中逐渐呈现出世界的意义;另一方面,世界范围内其他哲学传统(首先是西方哲学的传统)也将越来越为中国哲学的发展提供更广阔的参照背景和视域,并在实质的层面与形式的层面使其不断取得新的形态,后者同时从另一个方面展示了中国哲学的生成性与开放性。如何在关注和汲取其他哲学传统和智慧资源的同时,又展现自身在当今世界中的独特意义,是中国哲学研究无法回避的问题。第22届国际中国哲学大会旨在推进这方面的思考。

会议论文参考子题:
(1)何为世界哲学
(2)中国哲学如何参与世界性的百家争鸣
(3)世界历史的哲学反思
(4)中国哲学与东方哲学
(5)比较哲学的意义与限度
(6)中国哲学与分析哲学
(7)中国哲学与现象学
(8)中国哲学与实用主义
(9)世界哲学视域下的儒家哲学
(10)世界哲学视域下的道家哲学
(11)世界哲学视域下的佛教哲学
(12) 后疫情时代的中国哲学与世界哲学

The 21st International Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP) was held at the University of Bern, Switzerland, from July 2nd to July 5th, 2019.   

“Reality, Argumentation, and Persuasion:
Metaphysical Explorations and Epistemological Engagements in Chinese Philosophy”

University of Berne, Institute of Philosophy, Switzerland

Host Organization Website

Chinese philosophy has since its pre-Imperial beginnings been concerned with knowledge – witness Zhuangzi’s argument with Hui Shi about knowing about the happiness of the fish. Furthermore, as this famous story makes clear, there is argument about what people know and what they do not know. And there are things known, in this story, the happiness of the fish, more usually, the character of rulers, the rites, how to act, right and wrong, history, cosmology, the unifying principle of the world, medicine, and mathematics. Yet these aspects of the Chinese tradition have hardly received the attention they deserve from philosophers—questions of what can be known, what the concept of knowledge is taken to be, what role it plays within various conceptual frameworks, as well as the sceptical challenges made to knowledge, beginning, once again, with the Zhuangzi. Scepticism makes room for persuasion, and for clarifying what makes a sound argument, as opposed to mere persuasion. But there are also systematic collections of knowledge (mathematical, medical, cosmological, scientific, for example) which are prominent in the tradition, and they have close connections with philosophy proper. We invite proposals for papers and panels to deepen our understanding of these issues, and carry Chinese philosophy forward into the new millennium.

In the 21st century, cultures that originated on different continents are in close contact and people from various philosophical and religious traditions interact on multiple levels.

Under the general theme of “Chinese Philosophy in a Multicultural World,” the subthemes of this conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Chinese philosophy as a cultural tradition
2. Contemporary challenges for Chinese philosophy
3. Continuing relevance of Chinese philosophical ideas
4. Buddhism and the contemporary world
5. Confucianism and the contemporary world
