In the revised core curriculum, Yo Aizawa's first-year
seminar, Three Ways of East Asian Thought, also satisfies the
requirement of the core course in Cultures of Africa, Asia, and the Americas.
Aizawa's course provides a hands-on introduction to Zen Buddhism, Taoism and
Confucianism. Students meditate, keep journals, perform Tai Chi exercise, and
will visit a Zen monastery in the Catskills.
