Reality, Argumentation, and Persuasion: Metaphysical Explorations and Epistemological Engagements?in Chinese Philosophy

ISCP 21st?International Conference on Chinese Philosophy
Tuesday 2nd?July- Friday 5th?July, 2019

“Reality, Argumentation, and Persuasion:
Metaphysical Explorations and Epistemological Engagements in Chinese Philosophy”

University of Berne, Institute of Philosophy, Switzerland

Host Organization Website

Chinese philosophy has since its pre-Imperial beginnings been concerned with knowledge – witness Zhuangzi’s argument with Hui Shi about knowing about the happiness of the fish. Furthermore, as this famous story makes clear, there is?argument?about what people know and what they do not know. And there are things known, in this story, the happiness of the fish, more usually, the character of rulers, the rites, how to act, right and wrong, history, cosmology, the unifying principle of the world, medicine, and mathematics. Yet these aspects of the Chinese tradition have hardly received the attention they deserve from philosophers—questions of what can be known, what the concept of knowledge is taken to be, what role it plays within various conceptual frameworks, as well as the sceptical challenges made to knowledge, beginning, once again, with the?Zhuangzi. Scepticism makes room for persuasion, and for clarifying what makes a sound argument, as opposed to mere persuasion. But there are also systematic collections of knowledge (mathematical, medical, cosmological, scientific, for example) which are prominent in the tradition, and they have close connections with philosophy proper. We invite proposals for papers and panels to deepen our understanding of these issues, and carry Chinese philosophy forward into the new millennium.

國際中國哲學會第二十一屆國際哲學大會:201972-5
主題:實在,論證,說服:中國哲學中的形上探討與知識論的參與
地點:瑞士波恩大學

中國哲學對知識論辯的關注可溯及先秦時代, 莊子與惠施對知魚之樂的辯論即是實例。他們兩人的爭辯涉及人們所知與所不知的領域。當我們談論知識, 必然涉及所知的對象—不管是莊惠辯論之中的魚之樂, 先秦諸哲所關注的王者之德, 禮法之規范性, 行為之準則, 是非判斷的基礎, 通一萬物的道及理, 還是種種人類系統性的知識, 如歷史、宇宙論、醫藥、數學等等。知識論與所知的領域是不可分割的。然而, 中國的實在論與知識論至目前為止還未受到足夠的哲學肯定與研析。種種中國知識論上的問題—比如知識的內容與可能性,【知識】的概念分析,知識在不同概念架構中所扮演的角色,以及懷疑論者對知識的挑戰—都尚未受到哲學家的足夠關注。本次ISCP國際哲學大會意圖彌補這項缺失。本次大會的議題檢視中國哲學中的知識概念,包括所知的對象,知識在概念架構中的角色,以及種種挑戰知識可能的懷疑論立場。懷疑論為區分有效論證與純粹修辭提供了探討空間。同時需要專注的是中國思想史上有系統性的知識體系(如數學, 醫學, 宇宙論, 自然科學, 等等),不僅在中國傳承中地位重要,而且非常具有哲學性。本次ISCP國際哲學大會希望能能到眾多學者的支持,藉由對這些重點哲學問題的探討,推動中國哲學在新世紀全球化的蓬勃發展。

20th International ISCP, Day 2 – 4

20th?International Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy
Chinese Philosophy in a Multicultural World, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Final Report:?

The 20th?ISCP conference has successfully concluded on July 7, 2017.? In the four days of the conference, there were many concurrent sessions covering a rich array of topics from the comparative angle, the hermeneutic angle, the angle of textual analysis, the angle of reconstructive reading, and the philosophical angle.? The distribution of Chinese and English sessions is about 50-50.? A distinctive feature of this conference is to showcase junior scholars and advance graduate students amidst established scholars. These junior scholars carry themselves impressively well, presenting refreshing approaches and novel ideas. The ISCP aims to continue this direction set by this conference to integrate junior and senior scholars.

At the business meeting, it is announced that the next ISCP conference will be held at the University of Bern in Switzerland in 2019.? Professor Richard King, our current Vice President, will be the key organizer of this conference, and the tentative theme is “Knowledge, Persuasion, and Argument in Chinese Philosophy.”? More information will be updated on our website when available.? The Nomination Committee also decided to nominate Professor Yang Guorong from East China Normal University in Shanghai, China to be considered for the next VP after Professor Chenyang Li finishes his term at the end of 2017.? There will be an official e-vote among current members in November.

It is also announced that starting January 1, 2018, we will raise our membership fees to $30 a year. There will be a membership page posted on our website, and everyone can consult the page to see the status of his or her membership.

The 24th?World Congress of Philosophy will take place in Beijing (Peking University), China, on August 13-20, 2018, and the ISCP will propose a one-day mini-conference at this venue.? We aim to produce a philosophically attractive and engaging mini-conference, with four sub-themes and high quality papers. We welcome suggestions on innovative themes. Once we have chosen the themes, we will do a call for papers and the selection will be rigorous.? To expose Chinese philosophy to philosophers outside of this area of expertise, all papers will be written and read in English.

At the conclusion of this conference, the ISCP banner was passed from Chenyang Li to Richard King, to symbolize the passing of the torch.?It is with great commitment that the ISCP officers will continue the professionalism and academic rigor exemplified in this conference, and we look forward to seeing more participants at the next conference in Bern in 2019.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Summary of Other Plenary Talks:

The third plenary session was held on July 5th, the second day of ISCP conference. The session was chaired by Carine Defoort from University of Leuven, who introduced the first speaker, Prof. Vincent Shen (沈清松) from the University of Toronto, and the second speaker, Prof. Bryan van Norden (萬百安) from Vassar College and Yale-NUS. Prof. Shen, in his lecture “Daxue: The Great Learning for University Today,” emphasizes the significance of?Daxue?in today’s higher education, as well as in the modern society of globalization. Prof. Shen promotes the method of strangification as the ideal way to handle various issues encountered in today’s multicultural society. The method of strangification, inspired by?Daxue, is understood as a method of consensus building through the process of universalization. It is also called?waitui?(外推), since strangification is rooted from one’s own generosity and extends from one to the others with the principle of reciprocity. Prof. Shen compares his theory with Habermas’ theory of communicative action and considers his own theory superior. Shen’s talk generated a lot of interesting questions from the audience.

Prof. van Norden, in his lecture, “Like Loving a Lovely Sight: Simile and Metaphor in Chinese Philosophy,” gave a vivid presentation on the use of metaphor and simile in Chinese philosophy, particularly in the Confucian tradition. van Norden focused on a popular and influential statement made in?Daxue,?“It is s like hating a bad odor, or loving a lovely sight”?(如惡惡臭如好好色), and elaborated various ways of interpreting this statement. He found the traditional interpretations of “loving a lovely sight” inadequate as they tend to avoid the sexual reference implicit in the statement (se?色?means a beautiful woman rather than a beautiful color), and so in such interpretations the immediate connection between perception (seeing a beauty) and action (loving the beauty) is missing. The intended parallel between hating a bad odor and loving a lovely sight is also absent under traditional interpretations. van Norden further examined Chen Yi’s idea of true knowledge with Chen’s example of a farmer once mauled by a tiger, Zhu Xi’s discussions on deeper understanding, and Wang Yangming’s claim that there is a direct link between knowing and action. This relates well to the perennial issue of knowledge and action, and van Norden’s presentation generated lots of discussion.

On Day 4, July 7, there were three plenary talks.? Professor Haifeng Jing gave the talk on the three dimensions of hermeneutical reconstruction of Chinese classics: First, it should respond to the challenge of modern Western culture, such that it can have a dialogue and correspondence with Western hermeneutics in terms of its domain of problems and its means of expression. Second, it should be enriched by the profound Chinese cultural heritage by which it can mobilize all past interpretations of Chinese classics inclusively with regard to past records and modes. Among the traditions, Confucian classics should be its core, but not the sole element, whereas elementary studies of the texts and words (xiaoxue) should provide a foundation, but not to set the limitation.? Third, it should have an explicit aim.? The reinterpretation of Chinese classics is not meant to sort out national cultural heritage, but to shed light on the philosophical import and core essence of past thinking, so as to establish the identity of contemporary Chinese culture, to provide written testimony and to explore its modern significance. ?He argues that the philosophical imports of the Confucian classics might be better preserved by neo-Confucianism of the Song-Ming era. If we want to further develop the philosophical dimensions of Chinese hermeneutics of the classics (jingxue), we need to draw upon the texts of neo-Confucianism (zixue).? The study of neo-Confucian texts can enhance our hermeneutic reconstruction of Confucian classics. He concludes that “philosophizing” Confucian classics is already a trend, a “must”, not an option and not in dispute. Nowadays we must acknowledge Confucianism as?philosophy, not merely a form of religion or a way of life.

Professor Karyn Lai’s talk is entitled “The Devil is in the Detail: the Significance of the?Analects?for Moral Theory and Practice.” ?She begins by citing Immanuel Kant’s derogative and dismissive attitude toward Chinese?philosophy, in particular, his denouncing the existence of Chinese ethics.? She continues to present the negative assessment of Chinese ethics, especially in the?Analects, that is echoed in many other earlier scholars on Chinese philosophy. ?However, in all these criticisms, there are some presuppositions on what “ethics” should have and what the?Analects?is lacking. ?Lai suggests that we take a different approach: study the text of the?Analects?closely to see what it does offer. She points out that the?Analects?manifests the paradigm of examples and situationality.? Book Ten of the?Analects, for example, is filled with trivial examples of etiquette and Confucius’ demeanor in various situations.? According to Lai, an important route to becoming moral is to learn from examples — familiarizing oneself with norms of behavioral propriety, practicing what one learns, having discourse with others — which in turn builds a repository of appropriate behavior.? Stories in the?Analects?are not meant to set up normativity in all situations, nor to define various virtues. If we take it to be doing the latter tasks, then of course we would be disappointed.? It is time that we go beyond seeking moral “theory” in the?Analects.? She emphasizes that it is not that norms are not important; however, moral principles often cannot help us to make moral decisions in particular situations. ?She cites Linda Zagzebski’s view that moral theory is like a world map — it helps us to situate ourselves in the world, but cannot offer us practical guidance. ?She concludes that moral theory by itself is never sufficient and we need many examples to help guide us through the multiple ethical situations in life. ?And the?Analects?offers us a rich moral repertoire.

Professor Chung-ying Cheng gave the final plenary talk on the anthropic roots of Confucianism. What he means by anthropic principle (AP) is his rendition of the Chinese phrase:?tianrenheyi, which means literally the unity of heaven and human. ?He suggests that there are two versions of the AP: The strong anthropic principle suggests that this universe has a power and age and cosmological constants to accommodate human emergence and development.? The weak anthropic principle suggests that this universe must be consistent with our capability and performance in observing and knowing this universe so that what we know cosmologically is true of the universe.? Heaven is the root of our emergence, and at the same time, human ought to aim for cultivating the virtues of Heaven to perfection.? Hence, the unity of heaven and human is basically the unification of virtues in nature and in human conduct.? In the history of Chinese philosophy, many Confucians emphasize unification in various aspects.? Unification is a matter of grounding humanity and its moral efforts for completion and perfection. Cheng suggests that this principle can better explain the world than current scientific models, because it enables us to answer the initial questions of human being, human understanding and human action.

20th International ISCP, Day 1

Dear All

Here is a brief report on the first day of the ISCP 2017 conference held at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore: Chinese Philosophy in a Multicultural World. Those of you who could not make it this time can get a sense of what is going on here.

20th?International Conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy
Day 1, July 4th, 2017

Opening Ceremony

President Chenyang Li opened the conference with remembrance of two former presidents of the ISCP: Professor Shu-hsien Liu and Professor Jiyuan Yu, both passed away in 2016.? He also shared the sad news of the recent passing of Henry Rosemont, Jr. (1934-2017).? All participants were asked to rise up to give a two-minute silence in memoriam.

Dean Alan Chan gave a welcoming speech next. He explained that this 20th?ISCP conference, with more than 200 participants from various countries, is the largest ISCP international conference to date. He attributed this phenomenal success to Chenyang Li and his team. He also thanked the sponsors of this conference: Center for Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Nanyang Confucian Association, Singapore, Pei Hwa Foundation, and Modern Confucianism Foundation Ltd.

Chenyang Li explained that this is a?Green?conference; hence, no paper or abstract is printed out. Instead, they are available on the website. The organizers also provided the gift of a smartly designed square refillable water bottle for all participants to reduce the wasteful production of plastic bottles. ?This is really a model that other conference organizers should emulate.

The first plenary speaker is Dr. Robert C. Neville from Boston University, a long-time leader of the ISCP.? The title of Neville’s talk is “Ritual and Creativity.” He explains that whereas rituals dictate rules of human interactions, creativity is needed for individual space and personal integration.? Rituals are in all aspects of our lives; our life is fundamentally a ritualized life. Creativity is required for individual expressions and maneuvers of rituals. There are of course certain rituals that are harmful, such as racism and sexism. Critical analysis of rituals requires creativity that stands outside the box. Thirdly, the invention of new rituals requires creativity. Sometimes the old rituals and the new ones do not cohere with one another. Nevertheless, we should not be afraid to open new paths. Furthermore, rituals support spontaneity. A well-played life provides leisure and leisure allows spontaneity. Neville suggests that the dichotomy between individualism and participation is mistaken. Each of us in our core has all sorts of ritual forms that make us complete. Over lifetime, we make who we are by the choices we make and the paths we take.? The days are over when people are forced to take the paths that their parents set for them. Each of us gives personal integration of various rituals in our life. We humans leave environmental footprints (so it is good that this is a Green conference). Many of our effects on others and on the world are of course out of our control. Nevertheless, the best way to make ourselves better people is to take what we can control and to make the best of it by our personal and conjoined actions. Such creativity does not stand in opposition of ritualized life; on the contrary, creativity can enhance the richness of our ritualized life.

The second plenary session includes two keynote speakers: Professor Carine Defoort from KU Leuven and Professor Tao Liang from Renmin University.? Defoort’s talk argues that Confucianism and Mohism should not regard each other as archenemies. She analyzes the connection between Kongzi and Mozi and suggests that the negative references of each other in the texts should be read as “constructions,” rather than literally. The two schools have more in common than disagreement. ?She cites Kang Youwei’s (1858-1927) view that Mozi was a religious leader, and that Confucius was not any less a religious leader too. ?In Kang’s view, for Confucianism to emerge as a religion, it needs a rival religion; hence, Mohism was treated as an opposing school. ?Defoort further argues that it was Mencius who presented Mohism as a foe, highlighting the latter’s theory of “care without gradations.” In Mencius’ characterization, Mohism is demonized and oversimplified. Some later Confucian scholars did raise doubt about Mencius’ reading of Mohism. In the West, beginning in the 19th?century, scholars raised serious objections to Mencius’ reading of Mohism and his “unjust” accusation. The key doctrine of Mohism should be on inclusiveness rather than equality in one’s love and care of others. She concludes that we need to do more careful study on the philosophical differences between the two schools.

Professor Liang Tao talks about the integration of Mencius and Xunzi. He said that he has been advocating a new Confucian lineage: The old lineage for Confucians is Kongzi — Zengzi — Zisi — Mengzi. New lineage for the transition of?Dao?is Kongzi — 72 disciples — Zisi — Mencius — Xunzi. Liang further suggests that we adopt new “Four Books”:?Analects,?Book of Rites,?Mengzi, and?Xunzi.? An obvious difficulty for his integration of Mencius and Xunzi is of course the apparent disagreement of their view on human nature. Liang argues that Xunzi’s view is not really that human nature is evil, and that good is the result of external efforts. He cites the excavated text and Pang Pu’s interpretation that what Xunzi meant by effort (“wei”) was not external efforts, but “conscious exertion.”? The term ‘wei’ refers to activities of heart-mind. So Xunzi’s view should be read as “human nature is bad and heart-mind is good.”? The heart-mind for Xunzi is moral and intelligent, being inclined to goodness. So the debate between Mencius and Xunzi is actually not on whether human nature is good or bad; rather, it is on whether morality is based on human nature of human heart-mind.

The host has been very generous in providing tea breaks and luncheon. Tea breaks came with delicious appetizers, desserts, fresh fruit, in addition to coffee and tea. The luncheon was a huge buffet with three options: Western, Asian and Vegetarian. The breaks and lunch are set in a casual atmosphere conducive to interpersonal exchanges. Many participants are able to catch up with old acquaintances or make new ones.

The afternoon program consists of two time slots, each with six concurrent sessions, some in Chinese and some in English. The rest of the conference will be mostly similar to the first day — one plenary session and several concurrent sessions. The conference closes on July 7th.? A final report will be given after the conference is concluded.
