Critical Inquiries in Comparative Philosophy

Series edited by Alexus McLeod

The Critical Overviews in Comparative Philosophy series aims to present detailed and inclusive surveys of contemporary research in multiple areas of Asian and Comparative Philosophy. Each volume outlines and engages with the current research within comparative philosophy through the lenses of traditional philosophical areas such as ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, and language/logic, offering those outside the fields in question (both scholars and students) an up-to-date picture of the work being done in these areas. The series covers topics in East Asian and South Asian philosophy, primarily in a comparative context.

Each volume is a single-authored work presenting, synthesizing, and analysing recent developments in particular areas within a field of comparative research, as well as offering promising directions for future research, outlining possible objections and solutions, and considering ways the area might be further developed.

The series welcomes proposals for monographs and well-curated edited collections that pioneer new directions of inquiry. Further details of the series, its aims and objectives can be found on the series editors’ blog:
