Call For Papers 徵稿啟事


CCPEA was first established in 2012 in order to promote academic exchanges and international research collaborations among East Asian philosophers. This conference takes place every two years. The first one was held in Taipei in September 2012, the second one in Kyoto in August 2014, and the third one in Seoul in August 2016. With this platform many East Asian philosophers and philosophers working on east Asian philosophy shared their work and interacted with one another during session meetings and social gatherings. We hope that the 4th CCPEA will continue this great tradition and facilitate more academically exciting and inspiring exchanges of ideas among East Asian philosophers.          


We have a special emphasis on “’The heritage of East Asia Philosophy” in the 4th conference. We would like to use this platform to honor and learn from the legacy of our teachers and the great effort they devote to our philosophical tradition, as well as encouraging the participation of young researchers and students so that this philosophical heritage will be passed down.
