Journal of Japanese Philosophy


The Journal of Japanese Philosophy, published by SUNY Press, aims to demonstrate the relevance of Japanese philosophy. It welcomes rigorous academic papers on all time periods and all areas of Japanese philosophy, classical to contemporary, from a variety of perspectives, including interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and comparative studies. More information is available at the journal's website.

A complete submission for an article must include an abstract of no more than 200 words.
