    A Brief History of Analytic Philosophy in Hong Kong.Joe Y. F. Lau & Jonathan K. L. Chan - 2022 - Asian Journal of Philosophy 1 (1).
    This paper offers a brief historical survey of the development of analytic philosophy in Hong Kong from 1911 to the present day. At first, Western philosophy was a minor subject taught mainly by part-time staff. After the Second World War, research and teaching in analytic philosophy in Hong Kong began to grow and consolidate with the expansion of higher-education and the establishment of new universities. Analytic philosophy has been a significant influence on comparative and Chinese philosophy and played a crucial (...)

    Reflections on the Umbrella Movement: Implications for Civic Education and Critical Thinking.Joe Y. F. Lau - 2019 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 51 (2):163-174.

    A More Substantive Neuron Doctrine.Joe Y. F. Lau - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (5):843-844.
    (1) It is not clear from Gold and Stoljar’s definition of biological neuroscience whether it includes computational and representational concepts. If so, then their evaluation of Kandel’s theory is problematic. If not, then a more direct refutation of the radical neuron doctrine is available. (2) Objections to the psychological sciences might derive not just from the conflation of the radical and the trivial neuron doctrine. There might also be the implicit belief that for many mental phenomena, adequate theories must invoke (...)
