Vincent Shen's primary research interest is in the area of Chinese philosophy, specifically Daoism and Confucianism. His secondary research interests are: comparative philosophy, phenomenology, and philosophical problems of technology, culture and religion. More recently he is focusing on developing a philosophy of waitui (strangification) and an ethics of generosity in the context of intercultural dialogue.
Shen received his Ph.D. in 1980 at the Institut Supérieur de Philosophie, Université Catholique de Louvain, with a thesis titled Action et Creativité: une étude sur les contrastes génétiques et structurels entre l'action blondélienne et la creativité whiteheadienne. He taught philosophy at National Chengchi University, Taipei for twenty years before moving to the University of Toronto in 2000.
Since July 2000, he has held the Lee Chair in Chinese Thought and Culture, and is cross-appointed with the Departments of Philosophy and East Asian Studies. From 2007 to 2010 he served as Chair of East Asian Studies. He has also been a visiting fellow at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris (1985); holder of the Verbiest Chair, Universiteit Katholik te Leuven, Belgium (1986); visiting professor, Institute of Theory and Social Studies of Science, University of Vienna (1993) and Institute of Psychology, University of Vienna (1996); holder of European Chair of Chinese Studies, International Institute for Asian Studies, Leiden University, the Netherlands (1998-1999); visiting professor, Department of Philosophy, University of Vienna (2008).
