Osher (50+). In this course, we explore Chinese philosophy from the ancient period to the modern period.
About this course:This course traces the thought of Chinese culture beginning with Lao Tzu and Confucius in the sixth century BCE. We follow the scholars of both as they formed additions, different interpretations, and even different schools; and note the influence of Buddhism on Chinese thinking and Chinese thinking on Buddhism. Our survey takes us from the ancient period through the medieval period, and finally the modern period, with the ultimate challenge to Chinese thought in 1949.
