Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is my great pleasure to announce publication of the Fall 2019 issue of the American Philosophical Association's Newsletter on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies, which is the second 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 evaluating the state of the scholarly field of Buddhist philosophy today (and tomorrow). The table of contents follows, and the issue as a whole can be accessed online at: https://www.apaonline.org/page/asian_newsletter
