What became known as the “Silk Road” was an amorphous constellation of metropolitan areas connected by a corridor of trade between the East and West. But more than trade occurred in these cities. This ‘road’ facilitated the meetings among diverse and cosmopolitan minds, resulting in the development of ideas that would have an enormous impact on the world of philosophy in centuries to come.


In this course we will explore the cross-influences of Indian, Chinese and Greek thought on the development of philosophy and culture, highlighting the significance of intercultural philosophy as a whole. The course will focus on the eastern regions of the Silk Road including northwest India and the Sino-Tibetan plateau between 6th century BCE and 7thcentury CE.

We will trace the rise of and interactions among philosophical schools including Vedanta, Buddhism, Taoism, Shaivism and Tantra. In addition, the Gandhara school of art and philosophy will be highlighted.
