Eastern Philosophy

By Jikan

Eastern Philosophy

Eastern philosophy has a rich history dating back to at least 3,000 BC, with its sources primarily in Asia, especially India and China.


This book examines the five best-known Eastern worldviews: Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, and Zen. It discusses their main characteristics and considers the purpose of each philosophy. 


Eastern philosophy differs greatly from Western philosophy. In a general sense, it can be said that Eastern philosophy focuses mainly on reality, while Western philosophy centers around truth.
