What standards should we use to evaluate culturally distinct philosophies? Is language a barrier in our attempts to understand other traditions? How do we avoid our comparisons being biased or generalized? Doing Philosophy Comparatively answers these questions by providing a thorough overview of the methodology involved in extending philosophy across linguistic and cultural boundaries. It introduces students to the main problems, methods, and approaches of comparative philosophy, showing how to make informed cross-cultural judgments through reflection and practice. Now thoroughly revised and updated to showcase the most recent developments in the field, this second edition engages students further with philosophies beyond the Anglo-European tradition and features: - A wider variety of comparative examples from Chinese, Indian, African, and Islamic traditions - A new section with focused exercises for each chapter, helping students to interact meaningfully with primary texts - Updated discussion questions and suggested reading sections With supporting online resources that provide links to reliable translations of the texts and primary sources included in the book, this new edition remains an essential toolkit for the practice of doing comparative philosophy.
