THEO 2468 Introduction to Asian Philosophy (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course examines the three streams of thought that make up the core of East Asian philosophy: Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. In the wisdom literature of these three "Ways," one finds the critical articulation of views about the nature of reality and about how one ought to live. An important theme common to all three teachings in this regard is the emphasis on learning as a process of self-transformation through self-effort in ordinary existence.

Instructor(s): David W. Johnson

Prerequisites: None

Cross listed with: PHIL4468

Comments: This course has no prerequisites and does not assume any background in Asian philosophy, but a final research paper will be required.
