Translating Chinese Philosophy into the Western Academy: Better Late than Never
5:45pm for 6pm start, Wednesday 29 March
Boardroom, La Trobe University City Campus, Level 20, 360 Collins Street, Melbourne
To what extent have we been successful in first understanding the Chinese philosophical narrative and then in “carrying it across” into the Western academy? And then to what extent have we been able to grow and “appreciate” (in the sense of value-added) our own philosophical parameters by engaging with this antique tradition? Join us for this public lecture and explore the topic together with Professor Roger Ames.
