PH 215 - Buddhist Philosophy


Credits: 3
An introduction to selected themes, schools, and thinkers of the Buddhist philosophical tradition in India, Tibet, China, and Japan. Buddhist metaphysics and ethics are examined with reference to the nature of reality and the person, causality and action, wisdom and compassion, emptiness and nihilism. Comparisons are made to Western philosophers, especially regarding the Buddhist critique of substance and the Buddhist ideal of compassionate openness to the world.
Note(s): Offered alternate years. (Designated a non-Western culture course; fulfills humanities requirement; fulfills humanistic inquiry and global cultural perspective.)
