Microphilosophy with Julian Baggini


Learning from Asian Philosophy

Season 4, Ep. 4

Bryan van Norden and Jin Y. Park are two of the world’s leading philosophers working at the intersection of east and west. Park’s book Buddhism and Postmodernity combines Zen and Huayan Buddhism with Continental philosophy, while van Norden’s book Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto has challenged western philosophers to open their minds and doors to other traditions. In discussion with Julian Baggini they talk about what we can learn from Asian thought and the obstacles to genuine cross-cultural philosophising.
