Warp, Weft, and Way

A Group Blog of Chinese and Comparative Philosophy

Welcome David Elstein

I’d like to welcome David Elstein to the Warp, Weft, and Way cast of contributors. David is assistant professor of philosophy at the State University of New York, New Paltz. He received his B.A. from Oberlin College and M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy at Academia Sinica in Taiwan. Though his initial training and research was in pre-Qin thought, recently he has become interested in contemporary Chinese philosophy, particularly Confucian political thought. He has published articles in Philosophy East and West and Dao, and is working on a book examining contemporary Chinese views on Confucianism and democracy.
