Wednesday, October 02, 2019

KENT COUNTY NEWS (CHESTERTOWN, MARYLAND) -- As chairman of the Department of Philosophy at San Francisco State University, Tiwald works on Chinese philosophy broadly construed, but has largely focused on Confucian, Daoist and neo-Confucian accounts of moral psychology, well-being and political authority, as well as the significance of Confucian views for virtue ethics, moral epistemology and individual and human rights.

He is the editor of, among others, Oxford Handbook of Chinese Philosophy (Oxford University Press, 2019), and is the author, with Stephen C. Angle, of Neo-Confucianism: A Philosophical Introduction (Polity, 2017).
