Abstract

Building on research in postcolonial theory that problematizes the role of Eurocentric methodologies in work about non-European cultures, this article raises questions about the research methods relevant to comparative philosophy. Scholarly activities in East Asian traditions reflect a ritualized approach to study and research informed by a certain conception of the mirror-like functioning of the mind. Recognizing this approach as a viable methodology in contemporary academia contributes not only to the diversification of philosophical content but to the decolonization of disciplinary practices.
