Edward Slingerland

I'm Distinguished University Scholar and Professor of Philosophy at the University of British Columbia, and was educated at Princeton, Stanford and the University of California, Berkeley. My areas of specialty include Chinese thought, comparative religion, cognitive science, and the relationship between the sciences and the humanities. In addition to academic journal articles in a wide range of fields, I've written several scholarly books, including What Science Offers the Humanities, Mind and Body in Early China, and a translation of the Analects of Confucius. My first book for a popular audience, Trying Not to Try, came out from Crown (Random House) in March 2014, and my second trade book, Drunk, was published by Little, Brown Spark in June 2021. After living most of my life in the States (New Jersey, then California for 16 years), I'm now a U.S.-Canada dual citizen and live in Vancouver, although I still spend as much time as possible on the coast of Northern California.
