In the 21st century, cultures that originated on different continents are in close contact and people from various philosophical and religious traditions interact on multiple levels. How can Chinese philosophy position and present itself in this multicultural and intercultural world? How does a globalized world affect the study and development of Chinese philosophy? What does Chinese philosophy contribute to the making of a more harmonious and prosperous world? How can Chinese philosophy more effectively interact and communicate with other traditions? What can Chinese philosophy do to further renew and enrich its own traditions? This conference explores such questions, directly and indirectly, from a wide range of perspectives.

Under the general theme of “Chinese Philosophy in a Multicultural World,” the subthemes of this conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Chinese philosophy as a cultural tradition
2. Contemporary challenges for Chinese philosophy
3. Continuing relevance of Chinese philosophical ideas
4. Buddhism and the contemporary world
5. Confucianism and the contemporary world
6. Daoism and the contemporary world
7. Chinese philosophy as a world philosophy
8. Chinese philosophy and philosophies of other cultures
9. Comparative approaches to Chinese philosophy
10. Pluralism and diversity in Chinese philosophy
11. The model of Confucian-Daoist complementarity
12. The harmony of the three teachings (Buddhism-Confucianism-Daoism)
13. Society and politics in Chinese philosophy
14. Multiculturalism in Singapore, East Asia, and Southeast Asia
