PHI 111 Philosophies of India

Credits: (3)
This course will explore the various philosophical traditions that have played a central role in India over the centuries, including the post-Vedic traditions, Buddhist philosophy, Jainism, Islamic philosophy, and Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence (ahimsa). While many of these schools of thought are strongly associated with religious traditions, the course will focus on their philosophical aspects and arguments. Comparisons and contrasts to western philosophical traditions will be considered, though no previous experience with philosophy is required.
