Ideal for readers with little or no previous knowledge of the subject, this book provides an exceptionally complete overview of the historical development of the major Eastern traditions of religious and philosophical thought (in India, China, and Japan). Broadly chronological in organization and using an engaging style that is filled with anecdotes, analogies, definitions, comparisons, and supporting quotes from primary and secondary sources -- it guides readers in recognizing the interrelationships that exist among the various systems, appreciating the relevance of these traditions to the concerns of modern times, and understanding the major issues of interpretation regarding these systems. Surveys the full range of Eastern thought -- the various schools within the Hindu and Buddhist traditions (with significant coverage of Zen Buddhism) as well as Confucianism, Taoism, and Shintoism. Traces the historical evolution of the major traditions and relates the insights of Hindu and Buddhist traditions to contemporary issues -- in full and open discussions. Explores the common ground shared by Eastern and Western traditions -- using many comparisons and analogies. For those interested in Eastern Philosophy.
