Readings in Classical Chinese Philosophy
PHIL 265
Fall 2006 not offered
Crosslisting: EAST 282

The goal of this class is to give students access to important Chinese philosophical texts in their original Classical Chinese in order to facilitate a level of engagement with the texts and their ideas that is impossible without reading them in their original language. The use of innovative pedagogical techniques, including the computer program Wenlin, will enable students with no prior background to move quickly to a point where they can understand the texts in question. Roughly half of each week will be spent on language-learning and half on discussion of the content of the passages we study.
