Summary: 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.
Patrick Bresnan wrote this book as a result of his love for the study of Eastern thought. He wanted students new to the subject to love it too. After trying many different books, he despaired of ever finding one that could excite th ...show moree beginning student. He realized that a text that was written with a background of personal experience would make the subject more appealing for students. He had that background and from it, created Awakening.
