Description: A first survey of the history of Chinese philosophy. Different instructors will offer different emphases but prominent figures are likely to include include Kongzi (Confucius), Mengzi (Mencius), Mozi, Laozi, and Zhuangzi. Some questions that might be addressed include: is reality knowable? Can I know I am not dreaming? What do I owe to my parents, and is it more or less than I owe to total strangers? What is a virtuous person like? And how should I live?
