Description: A first survey of the history of eastern philosophy, with attention to philosophical developments born from major traditions. Different instructors will offer different emphases but prominent figures are likely to include include Kongzi (Confucius), Laozi, and Zhuangzi from the Chinese tradition and selected representatives of the Theravada and Mahayana traditions in India. Topics are likely to include the nature of self, the nature of reality, our ability to know the nature of reality, and the personal moral demands and political imperatives we live with.
