PHI 2070 coming soon to a classroom near you

Should “ahimsa” rule the world? Can “nothingness” exist? Is evil good? Is God “in the excrement”? Why “miracle” is just a metaphor for the containment of power. Does “reincarnation” mean to change one’s personality? Did the Chinese invent pragmatism? How “koan” can change your life (and your idea of poetry). What’s Bodhidharma’s mindless mind? Why losing is not always losing and winning not always winning. Can “bravery” consist in dying? Why to destroy is to transform (careful! only for gods!).
