PHI 150 - Eastern and Western Conceptions of the Self
In this course we compare and evaluate conceptions of the self in Eastern and Western philosophical traditions. Questions include: Does the self exist? If so, what sort of thing is it? Could I survive the death of my body? Do I extend beyond the boundaries of a particular mind or body? In what sense, if any, is the self a social construct? Readings come from a variety of sources: contemporary and classical, Eastern and Western.
