4-5 December 2009, Conference on Eastern and Western Philosophical Themes, New York NY, U.S.A.

Date: 4-5 December 2009
Location: New York NY, U.S.A.

At one time, there was lively dialogue between Western and Eastern philosophy. Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and William James were strongly influenced by Eastern philosophy. But, during recent years, Western philosophy has shown much less respect for the East than previous and there seems less awareness that issues like epistemology, time, and selfhood have been addressed very intelligently in the East.

The purpose of the conference is to reinvigorate the dialog between Eastern and Western philosophy (philosophy as distinct from religion), and a galaxy of brilliant speakers from all over the globe have agreed to participate.
