Course Description: East Asian Philosophies and Religions: A Visual and Literary Introduction will explore the key philosophical and religious traditions that underlie East Asian belief systems, historically as well as in the present. Our course of study will focus on the emergence of Buddhism, Daoism, Confucianism, and Shinto within their original contexts, but will also consider how these traditions evolved as they moved across space and time. We will examine art and literature to familiarize ourselves with each tradition’s associated doctrines, objects and places of worship, and practices. As we analyze these sources, we will pay special attention to the impacts of cultural transmission, both on the traditions themselves and East Asian cultures they influenced.
