He has published articles and chapters on topics such as Hobbes's criticisms of Descartes's Meditations, autism spectrum disorder and theory of mind, and physician obligations and role morality. Carritt, The Theory of Beauty (ed. 2, London, 1923); R. Cheng founded the Journal of Chinese Philosophy in 1972 and has edited the Journal since then.
