PHI 307 - World Philosophy

4 Hour(s)
General Education P2 and CCD

This course is an introduction to the study of contemporary non-Western philosophy: philosophical traditions that originated and developed in the cultural regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Students will engage in an in-depth study of three works by contemporary thinkers that exemplify philosophical discourses of the three geographical and broad cultural areas identified. By means of the study of these distinct approaches to the discussion, for example, on the foundations of knowledge and reality, conceptions of the divine and the afterlife, ethical and political theories, students will be required to reflect on these works per se as well as in relation to their specific cultural and intellectual traditions, and to their intrinsic post-colonial character as reactions to distinctively Western and Classical philosophical and political theories.
