Romano Writes of U.S. Rise in Chinese Philosophy

Professor of Philosophy and Humanities Carlin Romano reports from the 18th conference of the International Society for Chinese Philosophy (ISCP) conference this summer, Chinese Philosophy and the Way of Living, and notes its ascent in the U.S. He writes in The Chronicle of Higher Education: “As China’s hard and soft power soars in almost every other dimension of political, financial, cultural, and media life, Chinese philosophy’s presence in American academe is also taking off.” Read what draws the philosophers to the U.S.  and how higher education is reacting. Romano is critic at large for The Chronicle and a 2013-14 Guggenheim Fellow. His book, America the Philosophical, was recently republished as a Vintage paperback.
