CFP for Volume on Indian and Chinese Philosophy

I’d like to pass on the following invitation from Professors Ithamar Theodor and Zhihua Yao:

We are pleased to announce the launching of a volume in the Comparative Studies of Indian and Chinese Philosophy and Religion. Please consider submitting an essay for this volume. Here are some examples of possible titles:

  • Brahman and Dao
  • Wuwei and the Bhagavad Gita’s notion of nonaction
  • Senses, mind and the grasping of reality
  • Consciousness and attention
  • The inner and external worlds
  • Layers of virtue and dharma
  • Yoga and Daoist practices
  • Chinese and Indian mythology
  • Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine

Naturally scholars grounded in Indian thought may have only a basic
acquaintance with Chinese thought, whereas scholars grounded in Chinese thought may have only a basic acquaintance with Indian thought. However, this is a pioneering volume aimed at building bridges between these two great cultures and complex systems of thought, and as such, we would hope to balance the volume with about half of the chapters written by scholars whose main area of scholarship is grounded in Chinese thought, and the other half written by scholars whose main area of scholarship is grounded in Indian thought.

We would also hope to balance the volume between Hinduism and Buddhism, as well as Confucianism and Daoism, but let us first receive proposals and then estimate the direction this volume is going. The chapters should be relatively short, and not exceed 5000 words.

Please send us proposals of about 150 words.

Sincerely yours,

    • Hi Albert — No I don’t. I’m sure either of the co-editors listed in the post would be happy to respond to any questions, though. (If you contact them and learn the answer to your question, you might note that here.)
