Dr. Ronnie Littlejohn, professor of philosophy and director of Asian Studies, published, “Three Paradigms for Studying Chinese Philosophy,” in the new volume Paradigm Shifts in Chinese Studies, edited by Shiping Hua, Calvin & Helen Lang, distinguished chair in Asian Studies, director of Asian Studies Program, and professor of Political Science respectively at The University of Louisville.
The essays in the book from a dozen scholars of varying disciplines offer a study of the change and continuity in paradigms in China studies, both inside and outside of China. In the last few years, the United States and China appeared to be moving in the direction of “de-coupling,” indicating that the engagement policy with China in the last four decade is ending. Old paradigms are shifting and new ones emerging.
