The Oxford Handbook of World Philosophy Summary

The Oxford Handbook of World Philosophy by Jay L. Garfield (Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Professor of Humanities, Kwan Im Thong Hood Cho Temple Professor of Humanities, Yale-NUS College)

The Oxford Handbook of World Philosophy provides the advanced student or scholar a set of introductions to each of the world's major non-European philosophical traditions. It offers the non-specialist a way in to unfamiliar philosophical texts and methods and the opportunity to explore non-European philosophical terrain and to connect her work in one tradition to philosophical ideas or texts from another. Sections on Chinese Philosophy, Indian Philosophy, Buddhist Philosophy, East Asian Philosophy, African Philosophy, and Recent Trends in Global Philosophy are each edited by an expert in the field. Each section includes a general introduction and a set of authoritative articles written by leading scholars, designed to provide the non-specialist a broad overview of a major topic or figure. This volume is an invaluable aid to those who would like to pursue philosophy in a global context, and to those who are committed to moving beyond Eurocentrism in academic philosophy.

The Oxford Handbook of World Philosophy Reviews

This is a much-needed, progressive source promoting a more holistic and inclusive cross-cultural dialogue. It should lead what, in the past, have been seen as disparate philosophical traditions to engage in what could truly become world philosophy, or 'doing philosophy' on a global scale. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
