LEARN NONWESTERN PHILOSOPHY

This is an outstanding introduction to nonwestern philosophies. As a longtime student of Buddhist and Chinese philosophies, I’m highly impressed by the depth and care that have gone into the initial series of episodes on the philosophies of India.

Unfortunately, beg and implore as I have, my philosophy study group colleagues continue to resist taking up any nonwestern philosophy seriously, so entrenched and brainwashed as they have become in their western ethnocentric and parochial mindsets. And to think these are the same people who disdain western colonialism - they in fact continue epistemic colonialism by refusing to engage the thought systems of those they colonized. How about that for irony???

So, no more excuses - learn nonwestern philosophy. You won’t be sorry - unbelievable riches await you.

The best overview available.

A bit more on the different schools of Buddhist thought would have been nice, but overall this is amazing.
