Buddhism and Chinese Culture - CHNS2010

Year - 2019

This unit explores the relationship between Buddhism and Chinese culture. Apart from investigating the transformation and domestication of Buddhism in China, it also examines the influence of Buddhism on various aspects of Chinese culture, such as Chinese religiosity, philosophy, language, literature, arts, politics, and every day cultural practices. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach, it also reflects on the enduring effects of the interaction between Buddhism and these aspects of Chinese culture in modern times.
