Roger T. Ames received his doctorate from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. He has been the recipient of many grants and awards, including the Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching (1990-91), Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Research (2012-13), and many grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities. He currently serves as president of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy (SACP), and as editor of both “Philosophy East and West” and “China Review International”. Comparative philosophy and Confucian philosophy are his primary areas of research and he has published widely in these areas. Professor Ames often works in collaboration with other scholars to produce explicitly philosophical translations of classical texts. These have included “Confucius’ Analects”, the “Daodejing”, and most recently, the “Classic of Family Reverence”. He is presently advocating Confucian role ethics as an attempt to take this philosophical tradition on its own terms.
