9780742513501: From Africa to Zen: An Invitation to World Philosophy

In the second edition of this groundbreaking text in non-Western philosophy, fifteen experts introduce some of the great philosophical traditions in the world. The dozen essays collected here unveil exciting, sophisticated philosophical traditions that are too often neglected in the western world. The contributors include the leading scholars in their fields, but they write for students coming to these concepts for the first time. Building on revisions and updates to the original essays on China, India, Japan, and the Americas, this new edition also considers three philosophical traditions for the first time―Jewish, Buddhist, and South Pacific (Måori) philosophy.

Solomon, Quincy Lee Centennial Professor of Philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin, is author of numerous books and textbooks in philosophy, including From Rationalism to Existentialism, The Passions, and The Bully Culture. Kathleen M. Higgins, professor of philosophy at the University of Texas at Austin, is the author of Nietzsche's Zarathustra, The Music of Our Lives, and Comic Relief: Nietzsche's Gay Science.

Review:

Robert Solomon and Kathy Higgins, editors, and the many distinguished contributors are to be congratulated for this excellent second edition of the work. The new chapters on Jewish, Buddhist, and Maori Philosophy maintain the high standard of the original chapters, all of which are written with great clarity and insight. Anyone interested in the philosophies of the world should gratefully accept the invitation to learn from this fine book. (Deutsch, Eliot)
