  1. Eastern philosophy refers to several completely different trends: Chinese and Indian philosophy. Of course, one can generally say that Western and Eastern philosophies do not exist as such. But still, let's take the generally accepted point of view. Many people write that Western philosophy is rationalistic, while Eastern philosophy is mystical. But if you study them in detail, you can see that they are essentially dealing with the same universal issues, especially in the early stages of their development.

    Both Eastern and Western philosophy:

    1. They were born in the bosom of mythology.
    2. They ask questions of cognition: what is good and evil, beautiful and ugly, justice and injustice.
    3. They ask questions about the origin of nature, strive for scientific analysis, and try to analyze natural phenomena.
  2. To begin with, it is necessary to point out that there is no single “Eastern philosophy” in the world. There are Chinese, Indian, and Arabic philosophical schools. Each of them has common points with the European classical school of philosophy, and there are also many differences. For example, Indian philosophy, like ancient philosophy, raises the question of the primary element, while Arabic philosophy, mixed with the philosophy of the Middle Ages, asks the question of the essence of the deity and its influence on the world around it.
