The Next CCPC Meeting 2022

CCPC Friends,

After frank and thoughtful discussions, we have come to the inevitable conclusion that we need to postpone the May 2021 CCPC meeting until May 2022. If you were on the 2020 program, you do not need to reapply. We will be in touch with you in the months ahead to see if you still wish to attend. We also anticipate new openings. The Call for Papers will go out in the late summer of 2021.

Remembering Eliot Deutsch (1931 – 2020)

Rabindranath Tagore once wrote that “Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come.” Eliot Deutsch, a pioneer in Comparative Philosophy, brought a light with him as he sailed to Hawai‘i from New York in 1966. The dawning of Comparative Philosophy would have been unimaginable without him. The vision of an inclusive world philosophy, one accepting of other worldviews and peoples, that was envisioned by Charles Moore and Wing-Tsit Chan and helped brought to light by Harold E. McCarthy and Winfield E. Nagley, would never have been realized without Eliot Deutsch. Our debt to him is deep, and will always remain so. –David Jones

In Memory of Martin Schönfeld (1963-2020)

John C. Maraldo publishes Japanese Philosophy in the Making 2

John C. Maraldo publishes Japanese Philosophy in the Making 2: Borderline Interrogations, Nagoya: Chisokudō Publications.

The second of three volumes of essays that engage Japanese philosophers as intercultural thinkers, this collection critically probes seminal works for their historical significance and contemporary relevance.  It shows how the relational ethics of Watsuji Tetsurō serves as a resource for new conceptions of trust, dignity, and human rights; how forgiveness empowers the repentance and the sense of responsibility advocated by Tanabe Hajime, and how Kuki Shūzō’s philosophy of contingency puts a fortuitous twist on normative ethics.  The author also re-examines the controversy about Kyoto School wartime writings so as to uncover the covert side of today’s empires, and reflects on the hidden consequences of seeing nature as the non-human world. Underlying these investigations is a consistent style that interrogates philosophers for what lies undisclosed and that exposes decisive questions that arise between us and them.
