Bryan W. Van Norden - The US doesn’t understand Chinese thought (19:25) Bryan William Van Norden, Ph.D., currently teaches in the Humanities at Yale – National University of Singapore and is the author of the forthcoming book, Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University. With the ongoing conflict with North Korea, tensions rising in the South China Sea along with China's growing influence on the world economy, the United States would stand to benefit from a better understanding of how the Chinese people think and how they look at the world. Very few universities in the United States teach traditional Chinese philosophies and that could lead to future problems if there is a lack of historical expertise when it comes to negotiating with the Chinese government. Bryan William Van Norden discusses the importance of understanding Chinese thought.
