RLST 005: INTRODUCTION TO ASIAN RELIGIONS Professor Vivian-Lee Nyitray Fall 2010 Office: INTN 3033C (in the RLST office) tel. 827-1251 e-mail: vnyitray@ucr.edu OH: TBA The Master said, "Only one who bursts with enthusiasm do I instruct; only one who bubbles with excitement do I enlighten. If I hold up one corner and a person cannot come back to me with the other three, I do not continue the lesson." Analects 7.8 This course is an introduction to some of the major religious traditions that originated in South and East Asia. It is not exhaustive and it does not include discussion of traditions, e.g., Islam and Christianity, which originated elsewhere but have become thoroughly indigenized and important in various Asian cultures and countries. Course Requirements Attendance at lecture is not required but is strongly recommended. Lecture slides, if used, will be posted on iLearn, usually ahead of time (but not guaranteed), but they are often images and do not convey all the information from lecture. If you come to lecture, there is a “no laptop, no cell phone, no iPad, no nothing” (except paper and pen) policy. If you have special needs, please see me and be sure to register with Student Special Services. Discussion section is worth 15% of your course grade; requirements will be determined by the TA in consultation with me. There are two in-class exams, each worth 20% of your grade. There is one take-home essay exam, worth 20% of your grade. There is a final exam, worth 25% of your grade. The concepts and practices of academic honesty and integrity are expected to be understood and followed. If you are found in violation of UCR policies in this regard (cheating, plagiarism, other offense), you will fail the assignment and may, at the discretion of the instructor, fail the course. In either case, you will be referred to student judicial affairs. Required Books
