CRN: 14028

This course is a comprehensive introduction to Indian philosophy and religion. It covers all the major philosophical schools, concepts, issues, and debates in a chronological framework. Students read both translations of primary sources as well as materials from secondary sources. This course aims to familiarize students with the kinds of questions asked by Indian thinkers such as: What really exists (metaphysics)? How do we know what we know (epistemology)? And how should we live our lives (ethics)? Students gain exposure to the practice of Indian philosophy and religion through local fieldwork projects.
