Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a much-needed, progressive source promoting a more holistic and inclusive cross-cultural dialogue. It should lead what, in the past, have been seen as disparate philosophical traditions to engage in what could truly become world philosophy, or 'doing philosophy' on a global scale. Highly recommended." --CHOICE

This book is an attempt to give summary coverage to major non-western philosophical traditions in a reasonably rigorous manner. Given the impossibility of compressing so much material into a single book, the book is not going to please everybody, but given the restrictions, I think the editors did a reasonably good job, with some caveats.

I'm personally most familiar with Indo-Tibetan Buddhist philosophy, and the articles in that section are all excellent overviews of ares of that tradition. The sections on Chinese, Islamic, and non-Buddhist Indian philosophy are all similarly substantive and were quite informative to me. The writing is dense but generally clear and jargon free. The articles on Japanese ethics and aesthetics are disappointing, lacking the rigor of the surrounding essays, but they are exceptions.

The final two sections are another story. "Philosophy in Africa and the African Diaspora" is a huge and diverse subject, and the essays don't begin to cover the subject, instead tending toward uninformative theoretical generalizations. For example, Tsenay Serequeberhan's "Africana Philosophy" spends most of its time discussing Gadamer, Vattimo, and Taylor rather than Africana philosophers.This is fortunately followed by Barry Hallen's excellent overview of African philosophy proper. The problem is that Hallen's topic could easily have filled the entire section, and perhaps should have, since I would have preferred to read more about Kwasi Wiredu and Kwame Gyekye than to read the very familiar and pedestrian article on affirmative action, which closes out the section. Wiredu edited the far more comprehensive

There is no doubt that this text covers much of world philosophy. However, the manner in which it is presented is atrocious. Reading it was akin to walking through waist high mud. It is not necessary to see the Japanese characters or the Chinese pronouncitations to understand the philosophy. It is really unbearable to get through. Additionally one must have a dictionary handy because there are many $5 words used when a $2 word would suffice. I have a graduate degree and really hated the way the authors cplicated an already challenging subject.
