Description

Over the course of its long history, Buddhism has been the most influential and widely practiced religion in Asia.

More recently it has spread to Europe, the Americas, and Australia. This course is an introduction to the major themes in Buddhist thought and practice. Beginning with the teachings associated with the historical Buddha, the course will go on to consider the development of the tradition over its long history in India. All readings for the course will be Buddhist texts in translation.

Intended Audience:

Open to all students from all schools and colleges. No previous knowledge of Buddhism is required.

Class Format:

Two 90-minute lectures in addition to 1-hour discussion section weekly
