Summary
Since the dawn of recorded history, China has offered a fertile spiritual climate for a wide range of religions and belief systems, producing Confucianism and Taoism while nurturing ancestor worship, Mahayana Buddhism, and, in a smaller proportion, Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. In this program, Hans Kung seeks to understand the religions of China-officially a religion-free zone during China's period of strict Communist rule-as well as the holistically oriented practices of traditional Chinese medicine and tai chi.
