This invaluable survey covers all of the main terms and concepts used in Eastern philosophy. It clearly defines the essential philosophical ideas linked to the traditions of Persia, the Islamic world, Japan, India, China and Tibet, and discusses the major principles of Zoroastrianism, Sufism, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Buddhism, and beyond. Each entry includes a lively and authoritative critical analysis of the term or concept covered.
This book is a uniquely helpful source for anyone interested in coming to grips with the Eastern philosophical world.
|“||Kuppermans book is an excellent exploration of the distinct philosophical investigations of the Asian traditions ... This is a useful and valuable portrait of Eastern philosophy, ... [this work] belongs in every academic library.
â€“APA Newsletter on Teaching Psychology, Spring 2001
Leaman (philosophy, Liverpool John Moores Univ.) writes exclusively about Eastern philosophy, with entries varying in length from a paragraph to several pages. He uses Asian terms in his explanations of philosophical concepts, and where philosophies differ in their interpretation of concepts he covers those differences in the entry. This shows the adoption, and adaptation, occurring among and between neighboring traditions. Leaman successfully separates philosophy and religion, allowing definitions of philosophical terms to stand on their own. He also includes coverage of Islam, giving the book an interesting breadth. The lists of key thinkers and concepts are helpful, and readers will gain from the definitions and discussion of major ideas of this large region's philosophies. Leaman is successful in his focus on Eastern philosophy; for academic and larger public libraries.

The discussions of Islamic philosophy are some of the best parts of the book, and the author demonstrates a keen understanding of the works of ibn Rushd, ibn Sina, alGhazzali, and al-Suhrawardi. References to Islamic concepts make clear connections to Greek philosophical sources-a helpful touchstone for those grounded in the Western tradition.
â€“Dan Wolne, University of Hawai'i Press
This book is a classic of its kind and Leaman is to be congratulated for completing such a successful project that can only enhance philosophic scholarship generally and broaden the horizons of Western philosophers....
