The Companion Encyclopedia of Asian Philosophy is a unique one-volume reference work which makes a broad range of richly varied philosophical, ethical and theological traditions accessible to a wide audience.
The Companion is divided into six sections covering the main traditions within Asian thought: Persian; Indian; Buddhist; Chinese; Japanese; and Islamic philosophy. Each section contains a collection of chapters which provide comprehensive coverage of the origins of the tradition, its approaches to, for example, logic and languages, and to questions of morals and society. The chapters also contain useful histories of the lives of the key influential thinkers, as well as a thorough analysis of the current trends.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Given the design of the work, the excellent writing, and the range and credentials of the contributors (for example, Masao Abe, Mary Boyce, and Karel Werner) this book is certainly not interchangeable with any other..... the academic or public library that can afford this book should buy it...."
-RQ, Fall 1997
"This massive reference work is perhaps the best one-volume companion to the study of Asian philosophies.."
-Choice, June 1997
