THE PERSPECTIVE ON HUMANS IN EASTERN PHILOSOPHY

Le Anh Dung

Abstract


Eastern philosophy appeared very early in history with two typical philosophies, India and China. These are the two countries with the earliest and most influential culture and ideology in the region. Studying the entire Eastern philosophical thoughts, we can easily see that the problem of man stands out. During the process of formation and development, Chinese philosophy has taken people and human-related issues as the object of study. Theories on humans are very rich and diverse in order to clarify the human issues in many different aspects. Therefore, the article focuses on analyzing the human perspective in some basic theories to clarify the content of human theory: from the origin of formation, human nature, human’s inherent character to the development of human personality to adapt to the social community in which people live in Eastern philosophy.
