Aims and scope

The aim of this journal is fourfold. First, it examines the reception of and confrontations with Western philosophy in East Asia. Secondly, it promotes the dialogue between various philosophical discourse and traditions in East Asia. Thirdly, it explores the potential of East Asian philosophy comprehensively. Fourthly, it attempts to articulate the history of East Asian philosophy. All time periods, themes, figures, texts, traditions and so on within and without East Asian philosophical contexts are welcome. Instead of confining East Asia to specific nations, languages, cultures, schools and so on, this journal perceives East Asia as a transnational and transcultural concept. East Asian philosophy, therefore, is a dynamic philosophical consortium that intercepts with philosophical texts, figures, concepts and traditions by trespassing cultural essentialism and national. East Asia-West and Intra-East Asia comparative philosophical studies are particularly welcome.

The Journal adopts double blind peer review. 

The journal does not have any preference regarding the romanization systems for Chinese, Korean, Japanese and other Asian languages. As long as it is consistent throughout the paper, the author can choose according to their personal preferences.
