The Journal of Chinese Philosophy is an anonymously peer-reviewed philosophical journal devoted to the study of Chinese philosophy and Chinese thought in all their phases and stages of development and articulation.

In our view there are three main efforts among recent studies of Chinese philosophy which merit specific mention. First, there is an attempt to make available important philosophical materials (in careful translation) from the history of Chinese philosophy, which constitute a contribution to the scholarly understanding of Chinese philosophy in its original form. Second, there is an attempt to make appropriate interpretations and expositions in Chinese philosophy, which constitute a contribution to the theoretical understanding of Chinese philosophy in its true claims. Third, there is an attempt to make comparative studies within a Chinese philosophical framework or in relation to schools of thought in the Western tradition, which constitutes a contribution to the critical understanding of Chinese philosophy and its values. All three efforts will be recognized and incorporated in this journal as fundamental ingredients.

To better articulate these efforts, we wish to emphasize in this journal the employment of critical and rigorous methodology of analysis, organization, and synthesis, for we believe that Chinese philosophy, including those parts which have been labeled mystical, can be intelligently examined, discussed, and communicated. We will thus aim at clear and cogent presentation of ideas, arguments, and conclusions. We will honor creative work in Chinese philosophy—for we ask imagination as well as scholarship in our approach to various aspects and dimensions of Chinese philosophy.

As a summary statement of the intended comprehensive scope of this journal, we shall mention four major historical periods and five major fields of discipline in Chinese philosophy. The four major historical periods are Classical Philosophy in Pre-Qin and Han Eras, Neo-Daoism and Chinese Buddhism, Neo-Confucianism, and Modern and Contemporary Chinese Philosophy since the nineteenth century. The five major fields of discipline are Chinese Logic and Scientific Thinking, Chinese Metaphysical Theories, Chinese Moral Philosophy and Philosophy of Religion, Chinese Art Theories and Aesthetics, and Chinese Social and Political Philosophies. We hope that a cross fertilization of these periods and fields will yield a still greater wealth of insight and ideas on nature, life, society, government, and human destiny.

This is a Diamond Open Access journal. Articles are published in Open Access at no cost to the author.

Signs & Media: A Journal of Semiotics in China and the World introduces the traditional Chinese theories of meaning, communication and art to the world, but also brings contemporary Chinese and East Asian semiotics in dialogue with contemporary international research.

Signs & Media is a double blind peer-reviewed, academic journal focused on semiotics in relation to contemporary media, communication and the arts. With the radical changes of forms of media and communication in modern society, as well as the dazzling spectacles of signs, symbols, texts, and art being produced, read, and interpreted in this cyber age of globalization a platform is needed where perspectives from East and West are shared to analyze these versatile productions of meaning.

The journal includes full-length research articles, review articles, short communications, or other formats of materials which explore the linguistic, philosophical, sociological, anthropological, literary, cognitive and other scientific dimensions of semiotics and media studies.

The journal is relevant to researchers and practitioners of semiotics and media studies who are interested in the generation and mechanism of meaning, as well as the structure of communications through all forms of media.
