Call for Proposals
This Group entertains individual paper proposals, but mostly encourages thematically integrated sessions. These sessions might focus on specific philosophical topics, methodological issues, a recent publication in the field, or a classical text of particular importance. Panels representing a diversity of methods to address a regionally defined topic are also encouraged. Possible topics include:
Those interested in any of these topics should contact the Program Unit Chairs for information on other members intending to develop proposals on the same topic.
This Group provides a forum for the scholarly study of Buddhist philosophical thought in its various forms across all regions and traditions of the Buddhist world. We seek to develop tightly organized sessions that deal not only with intra-Buddhist philosophical issues, such as those involving major philosophical traditions and major thinkers and texts, but also with topics involving the relationship between Buddhist philosophy and other traditions of philosophical thought — both ancient and modern. We likewise provide a venue to examine the relationship between Buddhist thought and Buddhist practice. We encourage work on the full range of Buddhist philosophy, including metaphysics, epistemology, soteriology, ethics, and philosophy of mind.
