Item description for Within the Four Seas: Introduction to Comparative Philosophy by U. Libbrecht...

Our world has evolved in such a way that we can no longer reduce it to just a market - it has also become an agora, where philosophers exchange world-views in order to understand one another. The author feels that Europe has lost its position at the center of the world and should stop pretending it holds the one true religion, philosophy, economy and science. Instead, it should turn its attention to fulfilling the dream of Erasmus reflected in his statement: "I wish to be a citizen of the world." First and foremost, the author argues, the citizens of Europe need to learn to play fair when comparing different cultures and not rely on exlusively western criteria. This book explains how a comparative model, based on the paradigm-free axes of energy and information, accommodates the current world-views of Taoism, Buddhism and Rationalism - representing Chinese, Indian and Western heritages respectively - and shows how science and religion interrelate within such a global framework.
