PHIL 232 - (P,D) Women in Chinese and Western Philosophies

3 cr.

(Prerequisites:  PHIL 120  and PHIL 210 )
This course introduces philosophies of women in Chinese thought from the classics in Confucian, Daoist, Buddhist traditions to iconoclastic writings, and juxtaposes them with Western thought. This comparative approach seeks to gain better insight on gender dynamics across traditions, their cultural limitations and their potentials for transcendence beyond post-colonial critique.
