PhD candidate in PhilosophyatUniversity of Toronto
Liang Zhou is from Singapore. He was drawn to China mainly by his interest in Chinese history and culture as well as by a curiosity about her modernisation.
While he remains inquisitive about all things philosophy, Liang Zhou is currently most fascinated by some topics that lie at the interface between epistemology and the philosophy of action. These include questions about practical and epistemic reasons, intentional action, and the connections between knowledge, action and rationality.
His other main area of interest lies in political philosophy, where Liang Zhou is interested in communitarianism, political value pluralism, and multiculturalism. Having been exposed to both eastern and western cultural and thought traditions, he is also interested in exploring the different perspectives one may bring to bear on these topics.
In his free time, Liang Zhou enjoys the theatre, books, interacting with animals, as well as the occasional video game.
