Abstract:

"Doing Philosophy Comparatively is the first comprehensive introduction to the foundations, problems, and methods of comparative philosophy. It is divided into three parts: A wide-ranging examination of the basic concepts of comparative philosophy, including 'philosophy', 'comparison', 'tradition', and 'culture' ; A discussion of the central problems that arise in extending philosophy across cultural boundaries: linguistic, justificatory, and evaluative incommensurability, projection and asymmetry, and the validity of cultural generalizations ; A critical look at the dominant contemporary approaches to comparative philosophy. Presenting a basic tool-kit for doing philosophy at the cross-cultural level, this textbook draws on many examples from the past and present of comparative philosophy and engages readers in sustained reflection on how to think comparatively."--Back cover.
