The Companion Encyclopedia of Asian Philosophy is a unique one-volume reference work which makes a broad range of richly varied philosophical, ethical and theological traditions accessible to a wide audience. The Companion is divided into six sections covering the main traditions within Asian thought: Zoroastrian or Persian; Indian; Buddhist; Chinese; Japanese; and Islamic philosophy. Each section contains a collection of chapters which provide comprehensive coverage of the origins of the tradition, its approaches to, for example, logic and languages, and to questions of morals and society. The chapters also contain useful histories of the lives of the key influential thinkers, as well as a thorough analysis of the current trends. Containing comprehensive bibliographies and suggestions for further reading, the Companion is a vital reference tool for students and scholars working in a broad range of fields, including philosophy, theology, and a variety of area studies, such as Asian, Indian and Middle Eastern studies, as well as being a valuable resource for everyone with an interest in any of the traditions covered.
