Eastern and Western Philosophers
Different philosophical perspectives are what make philosophy such an intriguing science. Will we ever fully comprehend the source or intentions of different philosophical beliefs? I suppose that would depend upon each philosopher, how much we know about them, and how much we can relate to their individual ideas. What we can do to help bridge the gaps of time and understanding is to carefully study each philosopher and their ideas, paying special attention to where and when they lived in hopes of finding common ground with present-day ideas that we are more familiar with.
