CHS 361 - Eastern Philosophy and Religions

(3) This seminar course introduces the basic teachings, history, and development of Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, and folk religion, as well as their role in China today.

Source books for these presentations include the Analects of Confucius, the Tao Te Ching, the I Ching, and the Diamond Sutra, etc. The course will examine these topics from a Christian perspective, seeing to what extent they are compatible with Christian doctrine. Field trips to relevant sites will occur throughout the program. Enrollment is limited to students admitted to the China Studies Program study abroad semester.
