Introduction to Buddhist Philosophy


Understand the basic teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. While some history of the Buddha’s life is necessary to understand his teachings, this course will largely examine the teachings themselves. You will learn of the early background, life of the Buddha, the Dharma underpinnings and meditation, the Four Noble Truths, and the Eightfold Path. Two textbooks are required.
