About this publication

The Australian Academy of the Humanities has had a long association with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), the premier academic organisation and comprehensive research centre of the People’s Republic of China in the fields of philosophy and social sciences. A Memorandum of Understanding between the two academies was signed in 2014, under which we committed to a three-year program of joint workshops with CASS.

Learning from the Other: Australian and Chinese Perspectives on Philosophy consists of a selection of nine papers drawn from two symposia on philosophy co-sponsored by the Australian Academy of the Humanities (AAH) and the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS).

2014 joint workshop in China

From 18–20 June 2014, Professors Alan Hájek FAHA and John Makeham FAHA led a delegation of Australian philosophers to Beijing to participate in a symposium on ‘Philosophy and Contemporary Society’ hosted by the Institute of Philosophy, CASS.

2015 joint workshop in Australia

Following the successful 2014 symposium in Beijing, Professor Xie Dikun, Director-General and Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Philosophy, CASS, led a four-day visit to Australia by five scholars from the Institute of Philosophy (CASS), from 3–7 July 2015. The CASS delegates participated in two programmes: a one-day philosophy symposium at The Australian National University (ANU) on 4 July, followed by a stream at the Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) conference at Macquarie University on 6 July. The stream at the AAP provided CASS delegates with the opportunity to interact with AAH Fellows and other attendees of the AAP Conference. Both events addressed the theme of ‘New Directions in Philosophy: Australian and Chinese Perspectives’.
