HIS 295-04 - Special Topic: History of Asian Thought

4 credits (Fall)
This course examines the ideas of social justice in Asia as the regional inflections of a global history. We examine the different philosophical and ideological positions, and the particular historical contexts in which they emerged and changed. How did Chinese, Hindu, and Buddhist  thinkers understand just societies, responsible  power, fairness, and other ethical issues? How were ideas shared and changed by cultural and institutional frameworks? And how do they inform dialogues with “the West”?

Prerequisite: HIS 100  or second-year standing.
Instructor: Luo
