ASIA 320 - Studies in Sacred Texts

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)

(Same as RELI 320 ) Examination of selected themes and texts in sacred literature.

May be taken more than once when content changes.

Topic for 2017/18a: Great Understanding is Broad and Unhurried: Sage Voices from China’s Past and Rethinking the Good Life. The beginning of this course title comes from the 4th century BCE philosopher, Zhuangzi. In this class we read some of China’s greatest teachers and among other things, question their relevance in today’s world. Without domesticating their ideas we explore a range of primary text readings including Zhuangzi, Laozi, Confucius, Du Fu, Huineng, Mencius and more. Michael Walsh
