PHIL 214 - M/Chinese Philosophy


Credit(s): 3
Lecture: 3
Non-Lecture: 0
General Education Area(s): Other World Civilizations

This course will provide a chronological survey of Chinese philosophy. Chinese philosophy has often been characterized as ‘humanism.’ But this humanism has its cosmological roots. This course will begin with the basic cosmological view of the ancient Chinese, and then investigate how different humanistic approaches under the same cosmological view could emerge. Three main schools of thought to be covered are: Confucianism, Taoism and Chinese Buddhism. The course will conclude with some contemporary articles on Chinese philosophy, and investigate how Chinese philosophy can develop from this stage on. This course has no prerequisites and assumes no background in philosophy or in Chinese language and culture. Not offered on a regular basis.
