About this Journal 關於期刊
International Journal of Chinese & Comparative Philosophy of Medicine was instituted to facilitate in-depth dialogue between Chinese and Western scholarship. While the West has pioneered academic research in bioethics and the philosophy of medicine, the contribution of China’s long tradition of medical humanities, as well as its rich historical resources in philosophical and ethical thought, should not be neglected. Given that cross-cultural academic communication at times suffers simple generalization and unfruitful abstraction, this new journal will offer important opportunities for Eastern and Western scholars to engage in concrete conversations in the fields of bioethics and the philosophy of medicine. It is the editors’ hope that this journal will help to enhance the level of mutual understanding between Eastern and Western views, as well as to deepen the human intellectual capacity to cope with profound bioethical issues.
