PHIL 24K: Perspectives on the Good Life: Introduction to East Asian Philosophy

Did Confucius really say all those things? What does it mean to call something zen? The popularity of mindfulness and meditation made Eastern Philosophy fashionable, but what exactly does that entail? This class will be an introduction to classical Chinese philosophy, focusing on Confucianism and its rivals (Daoism, Mohism, Buddhism). Many schools of thought in East Asia offered competing views on how to live a good life. This class will introduce you to these philosophies and show how they responded to each other. We'll also explore how Chinese thoughts were received and developed by Korean and Japanese philosophers and assess ongoing influences of these philosophies in East Asia and beyond.
