An Interdisciplinary Approach to Chinese Philosophy: Talk by Ralph Weber Now Online
Mixing concepts, perspectives and methods in interesting ways: Ralph Weber advocates an interdisciplinary approach to Chinese Philosophy in a talk that has recently been made available online. The presentation took place on March 26th, 2021, as part of the Virtual Symposium "Conversations on Chinese Philosophy" (Centre for East Asian Studies, University of Naples "L'Orientale").
Disciplines differ at the levels of ontology, epistemology and methods, Weber argues. Combining these in fruitful ways will help Chinese Philosophy become part of mainstream discussions.
Ralph Weber is Associate Professor of European Global Studies at the Institute for European Global Studies. He specializes in Political Theory, Chinese Politics, and modern Confucianism. Currently, he is the President of the European Association for Chinese Philosophy and the Chair of the Section on Political Theory in the Swiss Political Science Association.
