Five resources that an analytic philosopher who is interested in Eastern philosophy should read

1. Eastern Philosophy: The Basics by Victoria Harrison

2. Knowing Beyond Knowledge: Epistemologies of Religious Experience in Classical and Modern Advaita by Thomas Forsthoefel

3. The Fundamental Wisdom of the Middle Way: Nagarjuna’s Mulamadhyamakakarika/Engaging Buddhism by Jay Garfield

4. Nagarjuna’s Madhyamaka: A Philosophical Introduction by Jan Westerhoff

5. Warranted Neo-Confucian Belief by David Tien

Honorable Mention: Philosophy of Religion: A Contemporary Introduction by Keith Yandell

Though this book deals with a lot more stuff than just Eastern philosophy, it nevertheless, deserves to be mentioned.

Readers interested in this post might also be interested in my new article (forthcoming in Religious Studies) that addresses if Advaita Vedanta Hinduism can use Plantinga’s epistemology to be warranted. It can be found here.
