TPHL 655 - Confucian and Taoist Religious Thought

3 credits
This course consists of an introduction to the basic texts and motifs of the major North East Asian traditions of Confucianism and Daoism. Students will read selected primary sources, focusing on the classical figures of Confucius, Mencius, Xunzi, Laozi, and Zhuangzi, and the central themes of Tao, Heaven, ren, ritual, self-cultivation, ziran, and wuwei. Efforts will also be made to bring specific texts, themes, and thinkers into dialogue with Christian theology in order to answer the question: What can Christian theology learn from Confucianism/Daoism?
Same as: THEPH+762.
