Understanding Eastern Philosophy

Full Product Description

Presents both a comprehensive overview of, and an introduction to, the key philosophies of the East and how they compare with those of the West. The text examines the key tenets of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Jainism, Yin and Yang, and Confucianism, comparing and contrasting them with Western religions. The book is also a response to increasing doubt in the West about the value of formal expressions of religious belief, and the concurrent search for other sources offering a spiritual dimension to life. It challenges theism, particularly Christianity, with its belief in a personal God bestowing a certain version of "truth", and rejects the idea of the immortality of the soul.

Understanding Eastern Philosophy by Ray Billington was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in September 1997. The ISBN for Understanding Eastern Philosophy is 9780415129657.
