Eastern Philosohpy vs Western Philosophy

This is a very arbitrary division, but many groups break up philosophy into two basic groups - eastern philosophy and western philosophy.

Eastern philosophy is the philosophy of Asia. The main philosophies that fall into this category are:

* Indian philosophy
Hinduism and Buddhism are the main philosophies in this grouping.

* Chinese philosophy
Taoism and Buddhism are the two philosophies in China.

* Japanese philosophy
Zen Buddhism is the primary philosophy discussed here.

On the other hand is held Western philosophy. Instead of being country-based, Western philosophy is usually broken down in a progression of years.

* Greek and Roman philosophy
Socrates, Plato, Aristotle

* Renaissance philosophy
Voltaire, Descartes

* Modern philosophy
Kierkegaard, Heidegger
