May 27, 2015 – On May 25, Philip Buckley, associate professor of the Department of Philosophy, McGill University, visited CCS and discussed the cooperation of talent program between the two schools.
Tang Xiaosong, director of CCS, briefed Professor Buckley on the center’s latest research directions, new researchers and cooperation agreement of the talent programs. Buckley showed interest in the cooperation program, especially the exchange project of postgraduate students. He said the cooperation agreement would be presented to McGill University and feedback would be required soon.
Buckley then detailed differences of tuition fees in ten provinces of Canada, economic development, social welfare and healthcare systems, and discussed Sino-Canadian cultures with CCS researchers.
One of Buckley’s major contributions to research is his Husserl, Heidegger and the Crisis of Philosophical Responsibility (Dordrecht: Kluwer, 1992). His research is focused upon the phenomenology of Husserl and Heidegger, with an interest also in its historical antecedents and subsequent developments in 20th century French and German philosophy. Tang said Buckley’s research on philosophy would help the center improve its work.
At the end of the discussion, Buckley was given Report on Canadian Development (2015) (Blue Book of Canada) published by CCS, and he was invited to join the team of writing the Blue Book.
