Clearly written for the beginning student, THE PULSE OF WISDOM provides an introduction to Asian philosophy as found in the countries of India, China, and Japan. Its thematic approach covers the most significant questions in the areas of Oriental metaphysics, ontology, epistemology, and ethics as it successfully integrates historical and regional approaches. In addition, readings from Indian, Chinese, and Japanese sources allow the student to gain some familiarity with primary sources. This text helps students develop a sound grasp of the major teachings and leading figures and schools in Oriental thought. Furthermore, it enables the reader to gain a competent understanding of the ways of thinking of peoples with whom we will continue to work together more closely in our global community.
