From Africa to Zen : an invitation to world philosophy

edited by Robert C. Solomon and Kathleen M. Higgins

In the second edition of this groundbreaking text in non-Western philosophy, fifteen experts introduce some of the great philosophical traditions in the world. The dozen essays collected here unveil exciting, sophisticated philosophical traditions that are too often neglected in the western world. The contributors include the leading scholars in their fields, but they write for students coming to these concepts for the first time. Building on revisions and updates to the original essays on China, India, Japan, and the Americas, this new edition also considers three philosophical traditions for the first time-Jewish, Buddhist, and South Pacific (Maori) philosophy.
