Theme: China and the West, Mediating Narratives. The emergence of China as a global influence is one of the worlds’ most significant developments of the last decades. China’s views on social, cultural, political and economic institutions do and will continue to shape the world in the future.  The Philosophers’ Rally aims to introduce its participants to Chinese philosophy: the keynote speakers will elaborate the central concepts in the tradition of Chinese philosophy, and how the varying disciplines within the philosophical point of view (e.g. ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of language, political philosophy) are thought to relate. We hope hereby to create a dialogue between the perspectives of Chinese and Western philosophy; to open up questions as to how the two traditions relate qua methodology as well as content, which will hopefully lead to a better understanding of the framework from which our neighbours perceive our world. Prof dr. Lu Feng works at Tsinghua University (CHN) and worked as a visiting scholar at Harvard University (USA),  the University of St. Andrews (GBR) and Yonsei University (KOR). His research covers applied ethics, environmental philosophy, philosophy of science and -technology. He will provide a general introduction into Chinese philosophy. Prof. dr. Wen Haiming works at Renmin University (CHN) and specializes in metaphysics and comparative philosophy. He published books and several articles wherein he attempts to create a dialogue between different Chinese philosophical traditions (Confucianism, Daoism and Chan Buddhism) as well as between Chinese and Western philosophy. He will provide a lecture in Chinese metaphysics. Prof. dr. Liao Shenbai works at New York University (USA) and Beijing Normal University (CHN). His research focuses on (virtue) ethics, social- and political philosophy. He translated Rawls’ Theory of Justice and Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics into Chinese and published several works on Aristotle, on virtue ethics in Chinese Philosophy and also comparative studies on Chinese and Western ethical traditions. He will provide a lecture on key concepts in Chinese virtue ethics and relate these to Aristotle’s philosophy. Dr. Liu Fenrong did a PhD at the University of Amsterdam (NLD) and is currently working as a professor at Tsinghua University (CHN). Her area of expertise is logic; she has published extensively on preference logic, game theory and rational interaction as well as on the history of logics in Chinese thought and cross-cultural communication. She will lecture on the development of Chinese logic and draw comparisons with the Western tradition.
