4. Identify a non-Western philosopher (i.e. Eastern, African, etc.) whom you feel we did not cover enough in this course, but one you would like to study further. Non-Western means not European nor North American. Share their general philosophy and what appeals to you about it.

Each answer should be roughly 400 words. Please use proper APA formatting (Author, Date) and a reference page at the end.
