The present geopolitical rise of India and China evokes much interest in the comparative study of these two ancient Asian cultures. There are various studies comparing Western and Indian philosophies and religions, and there are similar works comparing Chinese and Western philosophy and religion. However, so far there is no systemic comparative study of Chinese and Indian philosophies and religions. Therefore there is a need to fill this gap. As such, Brahman and Dao: Comparative Studies of Indian and Chinese Philosophy and Religion is a pioneering volume in that it highlights possible bridges between these two great cultures and complex systems of thought, with seventeen chapters on various Indo-Chinese comparative topics. The book focuses on four themes: metaphysics and soteriology; ethics; body, health and spirituality; and language and culture.

About the Author:

Ithamar Theodor is a scholar of Hinduism. A graduate of the Theology Faculty, University of Oxford, and a Life Member of Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, he is lecturer at the University of Haifa and visiting scholar at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Zhihua Yao is associate professor in the Department of Philosophy at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. His research interests cover Buddhist philosophy, Indian philosophy, and philosophy of religion.

Review:

This volume will contribute to broadening the horizons of comparative philosophy and religion, and for that reason I highly recommend it to scholars of Indian and Chinese traditions and anyone who is interested in what can be learned from cross-cultural explorations. (Frontiers of Philosophy in China)

The editors who dreamt up this volume of essays on Brahman and Dao were walking in the right direction. (Religions of South Asia)

China and India have the richest and most influential spiritual and philosophic traditions in Asia and have been in contact with each other for two millennia, yet comparative studies of these two civilizations and their relationship with each other have been few. The fine essays in this volume bridge this gap by exploring the similarities and dissimilarities between the two traditions in the areas of metaphysics, ethics, medicine, spirituality, language, and culture. Theodor and Yao are to be commended for providing us with such an insightful and multi-dimensional understanding of the complex spiritual traditions of these two enormously influential cultures. (Keith Knapp, The Citadel)

This is a thoughtful and bold collection of essays that seeks genuinely to engage across Indian and Chinese traditions on a wide variety of issues. It represents the emerging field of comparativist study of Indian and Chinese materials that will surely be a significant area of twenty-first century global philosophy. This book offers a scholarly yet accessible presentation of illuminating comparisons between Indian and Chinese sources. (Chakravarthi Ram-Prasad, Lancaster University)
