Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu: Animated Introductions

Here are terrific animated reviews of three giants of Asian philosophy and religion, Lao Tzu, the Buddha, and Confucius.

Philosopher, Alain de Botton, founded a company in which he surveys some of the great philosophers, socialists, and political scientists in short five minute animated clips.

In a course on eastern philosophy, the School of Life reviews the life and contributions of Lao Tzu, the founder of Taoism, Confucius, and Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism.

The clips are ideal for students and could be used in class or assigned as homework.
