PHI 115 Alternative Philosophies 4cr

Mainstream Western Philosophy rests on a set of assumptions about the nature of reality and how we know it. Eastern, American Indian, transcendental, feminist, non-hierarchical, psychosynthetic, occult, and other non-traditionally Western views rest on a fairly cohesive set of alternative assumptions. Exploration of these serves as an introduction to Eastern philosophy and other alternatives and sheds light on the whole of Western philosophy as well.
