  • Compact Introducing guide to the historical and philosophical basis of Eastern cultures.

    Eastern philosophy is the most ancient form of thought known to humanity. Introducing Eastern Philosophy focuses on India and China, the two oldest and most influential origins of Eastern thought. It brilliantly explains the complex branches of Indian Buddhism, the traditions of Confucius and the Tao in China, and demonstrates their fundamental differences to Western notions of truth. It makes clear the Eastern view of ultimate reality, the emphasis on selfless ethics and the quest for Enlightenment.
