Eastern Philosophy: The Greatest Thinkers And Sages From Ancient To Modern Times
by Burns, Kevin
About This Book
This book provides a detailed but accessible analysis of the work of a number of thinkers, from all the major Eastern philosophical traditions from the earliest times to the present day. From Buddhism to Islam, Confucius to Gandhi, concepts and individuals are introduced in a lively and lucid narrative, with extensive biographical detail. Instead of trying to explain a philosopher's entire intellectual history, the author examines a central theme and uses it to expound the essential ingredients of its relevant school of thought.
The book is divided into three parts: India; the Middle East, which covers Zoroastrianism and Islam; and the Far East, which covers China, Korea and Japan. With glossary and index.
