Philosophy East/West showcases new scholarship in the philosophy of education and contemplative studies, paying particular attention to the intersection of mindfulness, evidence-based science, and wisdom traditions.

  • Moves beyond simplistic explanations of “Eastern” and “Western” to explore the complexity and diversity of various wisdom traditions
  • Investigates the effect of mindfulness-based curricular interventions on current educational theory and practice
  • Uses insights from important Western philosophers—including Heidegger, Levinas, and Foucault—to situate contemplative practice within contemporary educational theory
  • Emphasizes the importance of transcultural and intercultural approaches in the philosophy of education
