Confucianism and Virtue Ethics

Posted in Chinese Philosophy by Chris on April 1, 2008

I heard back today about my application to join the NEH seminar this summer at Wesleyan University (in Connecticut) on “Confucianism and Contemporary Virtue Ethics” — it was accepted, so I’ll be spending six weeks housed with 14 other people who eat, sleep and drink this subject just like I do. Call me a dork, but that’s what I call fun. (I’m also looking forward to getting a chance to head down to NYC, since it’s my hometown and I miss it dearly living out here in the Midwest).

    Hey Chris; that’s great. I’m going to be dropping in for some of the sessions, since I’m just down the road and Steve is a long-time friend.

    Devil — thanks!

    Manyul — very cool. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to have a beer (or two) at some point.

    Congratulations! I hadn’t heard about this seminar–sounds great! I’d also like to drop by for some of this–there are supposed to be some talks sometime during the 6 weeks. I’ll talk to Steve about it. I’m working on this topic for the dissertation, and I’m sure hearing what you guys have to say about it will be illuminating.

    Alexus –

    Hey, great! It would be nice to meet face-to-face. I feel like I have a connection to some of the newer grad students at UConn, but it’s always nice to make the “non-virtual” connection. I was actually just talking to Don Baxter the other day, and I mentioned how I had “met” a few of you in “blog world” (I suspect, though, that Don is not a blog-guy). It’s nice to maintain that connection to “your hood” (as if Manchester Hall can be considered a “hood”) and the web makes it possible nowadays.
