I do not know much about 'eastern' philosophy, but my general impression is that it is a bit more concerned with questions like 'how best to live' rather than 'how do we define the word 'best'' and 'how do we define the word 'how', etc....


hard to generalize as there are many "schools". Nicel smorgasbord to pick useful bits from.:D

I found it fascinating that a 4,000 year text ( Upanishads )could give me useful insights all my life ....especially the relationship with the self and the larger universe as being a single phenomena was and is a guiding principle.
That they were pondering these large issues without too much cloud of superstition and religious claptrap is a connection over time.
