World Religions: Buddhism
Dr. Hyo-Dong Lee, a native of South Korea with a Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University, is an Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Drew University. He will speak on Buddhism, which is one of the so-called "world religions" or "global faiths" that originated in the Indian subcontinent and is today found predominately in Asia, North America, and Europe. This lecture will introduce the audience to the basic features of the tradition focusing on its core beliefs, ideas, history, and rituals.
Professor Lee's research and teaching interests include comparative theology and comparative philosophy of religion with a focus on the dialogue between Christian/Western theological and philosophical and religious thought.
