    You need to choose one Eastern philosopher and one Western philosopher. Read some of what each has written. Then tell how each philosopher has attempted to convince people that his ideas are right.

    This article should give you some ideas.

    Here are lists of Eastern and Western philosophers.
    Your assignment asks that you choose one of each and explain how that person tries to convence others that his/her philosophy is correct. I would choose two that have ideas on the same subject and then you can compare and contrast the two and conclude which you think made the best argument.
