Is the distinction primarily intended to differentiate between Eastern and Western philosophy? If so, is this a legitimate distinction to make? And on what grounds is such a distinction predicated? Is such a distinction more misleading than enlightening? Can all non-Western philosophy be classified as Eastern philosophy? Are there similarities between the various Eastern philosophical schools? If so, what are they? Are there differences? If so, what are they? Would it be better to conceive of Eastern philosophy as Eastern religion?
