Ouch, that hurts. I study comparative Chinese philosophy, and I can totally understand the initial aversion to Eastern philosophy. It's a completely different paradigm. The reason why it's so "disorganized" is either because your lecturer didn't do their job right, or that the culture is wholly unintelligible. Both are normal. I didn't like Chinese philosophy for a year before meeting the right profs for the job.

Historically, 'philosophy', as a concept, doesn't exist in the East (China and Japan, for instance). The concept was a return-loan. It's a funny merry-go-round. Japan borrowed Kanji from China. When missionaries came to the East and brought philosophy texts, the Japanese formed a compound word 哲学. Chinese intellectuals went to Japan during the late 20th century, and they borrowed the concept from Japan.

I recommend you try Bryan van Norden. I enjoyed his works and he has heavily influenced how I approach Eastern philosophy: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCctdzIrBt9qtTk9mhtnXXaw

By the way, interesting read. I'm thinking of tackling Japanese philosophy next, once I get a basic grasp of the language.

I was once asked about the origins of the universe. So, here I am doing philosophy. Ethics | Intellectual History | Chinese Comparative Philosophy
