For courses in Asian Philosophy and Asian Religions. 

Awakening engages beginning students by discussing personal experience, employing a winning writing style, and approaching the subject from an historical perspective.

Awakening is an excellent introduction to comparative Eastern philosophic and religious thought. Awakening provides an engaging historical overview of the major philosophical and spiritual traditions of India, China, and Japan. Patrick Bresnan ties the past to the present and shows the relationships that exist between Eastern and Western traditions.
