10th-Anniversary Issues

JET Published Two Issues for the 10th Anniversary Celebration
Happy anniversary JET!

Journal of East-West Thought (JET), an academic quarterly, included in the noted Philosopher’s Index, is 10 years old this month. A 10-year-old tree, depending on species, is generally huge with wide foliage.  A 10-year-old human being is already in middle school, ready to spread wings of intellectual curiosity. A 10-year-old quarterly, however, is a weighty forty-volume collection of sweat, tears, sorrows, frustration, and alas, joy!
