Tsai Miao Kun (M.A. National Taiwan University); Email: g0800380-at-nus.edu.sg; Degree: PhD
The topic of Miao Kun’s MA thesis was on qing 情 in the Chuang-tzu. Since joining NUS, she has broadened her academic interest to include Continental philosophy and contemporary hermeneutics. At this moment she is endeavoring to work out a proposal for her doctoral thesis, which aims to contribute to comparative ethics through investigating the place of ethics and agency in pre-Qin Daoist thought, particularly the thought of Lao-zi and Chuang-tzu. She has the faith that in while in academic life, we reflect, in everydayness, we embrace our own worldhood through wandering at ease.
