The above course carries Arts & Humanities and Culture Studies A
distribution.

This class covers three major Asian religious traditions in detail:
Hinduism, Buddhism, and Daoism. Other traditions, such as Jainism
and Confucianism, will be covered in passing. Emphasis on these
Asian religious traditions will allow us to consider not only the
origins, developments, practices, and philosophical perspectives of
those individual traditions in detail, but also how those traditions
have shaped each other through their interaction. The course will
focus on the historical development and modern articulation of these
religious traditions as lived in Asia and elsewhere.
