Description: past and present philosophy in China.

Sites in this category should either serve as general resource sites for Chinese philosophy, or seek to answer the question of what Chinese philosophy is.

As a rule, sites should be listed in regional/national categories of Philosophy only if that is the only plausible place to list them. Sites which pertain to a specific Chinese thinker should be sent to Philosophers, and sites which pertain to a specific movement should be sent to the appropriate category. Double listing should be reserved for exceptional resources.

Description: Philosophers who have made substantial contributions to ethical theory, or who are identified as ethicists.
Ethics is the study of what's right and wrong (the word "morality" has a very similar, if not identical meaning) - as in "Stealing is wrong", not as in "2+2=3 is wrong". As with other branches of philosophy, there is virtually nothing in ethics on which everyone agrees, not even the foundations.
Sites dealing with a school of philosophy which does not have a separate category elsewhere and which is an important movement in a particular period (e.g., scholasticism in medieval philosophy, empiricism or rationalism in modern philosophy) may be listed here.
Western philosophy has a long and varied history, dating back to the pre-Socratic philosophers of ancient Greece.

Metaphysics is a primary subject area in philosophy which investigates the nature, constitution, and structure of reality. It also deals with notions such as causation, time, modality (necessity and possibility), particulars and universals, and the relation of mind to body.

Philosophy of language is the study of philosophical issues that arise due to the language based nature of discourse and argument. It is dominated by philosophical analysis, the branch of philosophy that occupies itself with what the structures of language tell us about the concepts we deploy in communicating. Philosophical analysis dates back to the Pre-Socratics , and was first made systematic in Aristotle's Organon, but it was with the revolutionary new developments in mathematical logic inaugurated by Frege that philosophical analysis assumed the central importance in philosophy that it does today.

Analytical philosophy is the school of philosophy which ascribes most importance to the philosophy of language, and it is in analytical philosophy that the so-called `linguistic turn' took place: this is the idea that long standing controversies in philosophy about the nature of the world and of knowledge can be settled by attention to the use of the relevant concepts in language. But even outside analytical philosophy, philosophy of language is important: linguistic issues take centre stage in the philosophical hermeneutics of Heidegger and Gadamer and in Derrida's Deconstruction, in phenomenology issues about privacy best formulated in linguistic terms are of crucial importance, whilst in cognitive science the debate about the nature of concepts revolves about matters of content that originated in the philosophy of language.

Pluridisciplinarity concerns studying a research topic not in only one discipline but in several at the same time. Interdisciplinarity concerns the transfer of methods from one discipline to another. As the prefix "trans" indicates, transdisciplinarity concerns that which is at once between the disciplines, across the different disciplines, and beyond all discipline. Its goal is the understanding of the present world, of which one of the imperatives is the unity of knowledge.
