18-20 March 2008, An International Conference ANALYTIC PHILOSOPHY AND ASIAN THOUGHT, Kyoto University, Japan

Date: 18-20 March 2008
Location: Kyoto University, Japan
Deadline: 31 January 2008

In recent years, fresh encounters have taken place between analytic philosophy and Asian thought. Contemporary analytic and logical tools have been applied to interpret Asian philosophies, while the rich variety of traditional ideas in the latter gives new perspectives in analytic philosophy. This conference is organized to enhance this trend, as well as to assess its status quo. Any tradition of Asian philosophy is included, though the emphasis of the conference is likely to be in areas related to Buddhism, such as Zen and other Mahayana schools, and Japanese philosophy such as Kyoto.
