9781438426761: Asian Texts - Asian Contexts: Encounters With Asian Philosophies and Religions (SUNY series in Asian Studies Development)

An overview of some of the great texts of Asian philosophy and religion, along with an exploration of the contexts in which they arose.

In an increasingly global society, non-Western thought can no longer be an afterthought for educators and their students. Asian Texts — Asian Contexts helps bring Asian philosophy and religion into wider classroom consideration by giving nonspecialists entrée to primary texts from India, China, and Japan and pedagogical strategies for presenting this material to Western students.

The texts section includes material on Buddhism, Daoism, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Kyoto school of Japanese philosophy. In the contexts section, nonspecialists are presented with ways to think about the integration of Asian material that includes considerations of religion, philosophy, history, and art. These useful and accessible essays are written with the nonspecialist in mind, but provide a creative edge that will be of interest to specialists as well.
