The Diversity Committee of the Department of Philosophy at York is
pleased to announce the second of a series of workshops this year,
"Diversify Our Syllabi: Chinese Philosophy."
This series serves to support philosophy educators in their efforts to
diversify the content of their syllabi. In each workshop in this series,
a scholar with research or teaching experience in a specific area of
underrepresented philosophy is asked to address three questions: (a)
what is the history of the topic, (b) what are the major disagreements
within this history, and (c) what are some suggestions for readings (and
available translations) that other philosophers could incorporate into
their syllabi. All philosophy educators (including TAs) and interested
philosophers are welcome!
Our second workshop of the year on the topic of Chinese Philosophy will
be led by Prof. Vincent Shen (Department of Philosophy, University of
Toronto). Prof. Shen is author and editor of numerous volumes on
Chinese philosophy, including the Dao Companion to Classical Confucian
Philosophy (Springer 2014), Inter-Culturality and Philosophic Discourse
(Cambridge Scholar 2013) and Morality, Metaphysics, and Chinese Culture
(International Society For Metaphysics, 1994).
When: 3:30-5:30, Friday November 24, 2017.
Where: 421 South Ross, Philosophy Department, York University.
