Buddhism in America
RELI 288
Fall 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: EAST 286

Buddhism has been in America for just over 100 years. Although this is a comparatively short period of time, already there appear to be new directions as well as distinctive concerns that warrant the claim that an American Buddhism has begun to emerge. Issues such as purity, equality, and authority, for example, have all come to the fore as the various traditions of Buddhism make their way onto American soil. This seminar will be a philosophical and sociohistorical examination of some of these issues and themes in contemporary Buddhism in America.
