Dear friends,

I am extremely saddened to share the news that ISCP executive director and executive committee chair, Professor Jiyuan Yu passed away on 3 November 2016, after a courageous battle with cancer.

His passing is a major loss to our organization. Professor Jiyuan Yu also served as the president of ISCP in 2012-2013 and hosted the 18th International Conference on Chinese Philosophy in Buffalo, New York in 2013. He will be remembered dearly by his friends and colleagues. A panel will be organized in his honor at the upcoming 20th International Conference on Chinese Philosophy in Singapore, 4-7 July 2017.

Thank you, Jiyuan and farewell, our dear friend!

Chenyang Li

President of ISCP

Yu was a long-time and highly admired Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York at Buffalo, in Buffalo, New York, starting in 1997. Prior to his professorship, Yu completed a three-year post as a research fellow at the University of Oxford, England (1994-1997). He received his education in China at both Shandong University and Renmin University, in Italy at Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, and in Canada at the University of Guelph.

He served on the Editorial Boards of History of Philosophy Quarterly (2002-2005), World Philosophy (2000-present), Frontiers in Philosophy (2006–present), the Chinese translation of the Complete Works of Aristotle (1988-1998), and the book series on Chinese and Comparative Philosophy (New York: Global Publications). He received the University’s Exceptional Scholar (Young Investigator) Award, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences’ Excellence in Teaching Award in 2002.
