One of the two main interests of my research over the past few years has been philosophy of religion, especially religious pluralism. I have published many papers or journal articles based on my understanding of John Hick’s works and of the related studies on religious pluralism and interreligious dialogue. Additionally, I have also tried to use Hick’s pluralism as one of the theoretical resources for me to discuss some religious issues. The other interest over the past few years has been Confucianism, especially its modern development and interaction with the West. I have worked on the thoughts of prominent New Confucian scholars such as Tang Chun-I and Mou Tsung-san, and have already published some relevant articles.
