Dear Friends and Colleagues,


It is my great pleasure to announce publication of the Spring 2019 issue of the American Philosophical Association's Newsletter on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies, which is the first of two guest-edited special issues of the newsletter dedicated to Buddhist philosophy: ‘Buddhist Philosophy Worldwide: Perspectives and Programmes’ (Spring), and ‘Buddhist Philosophy Today: Theories and Forms’ (Fall). The present volume includes what I believe is a hitherto unparalleled collection of texts detailing and appraising the state of the scholarly field of Buddhist philosophy around the world. The table of contents follows, and the issue as a whole can be accessed online at:
