East Asia boasts considerable diversity in the philosophical and religious thought systems that underlie and inform individual and organizational behavior. International best practice, spread through business schools, has reduced differences in behavior in different parts of the world in this regard but it is still possible to obtain benefits from studying and understanding that diversity and its impact. This paper itemizes some of the major thought systems in the area and seeks to understand their impact on epistemology and business practice. Keywords: East Asia Epistemology, Philosophy, Religion
