An introduction to comparative philosophy : a travel guide to philosophical space

Author: Walter Benesch
Publisher: Basingstoke : Palgrave, 2001 ©1997
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This text is more than an introduction to comparative philosophy in the East/West; it is also a guide to 'philosophizing' as a thinking process. In addition to outlining the presuppositions of different traditions, it discusses their methods and techniques for reasoning in what the author calls four dimensions of 'philosophical space': object, subject, situational, and the aspective/perspective dimension.
