The Excitement of Crossing Boundaries

Main Article Content

David B. Wong


This is an intellectual autobiography that aims to explain how I am both an analytic philosopher who writes on questions of moral relativism and pluralism and also on classical Confucianism and Daoism.  I have written on the subjects of moral psychology and moral epistemology, articulating what I see to be a fruitful consilience between insights of both Confucian and Daoist thinkers and some of the latest findings in psychology and neuroscience.  I regard as synergistic and completely logical this combination of interests, but many find it surprising, so I identify the experiences and influences that brought me to where I am now.
