teaching

Teaching is integral to what it means for me to do philosophy. I approach teaching the student of Philosophy as producing in them the frustrations and joys of reading and asking questions of texts, such that they thereby acquire a greater sense of the value of their own thinking and deeper vision for everything they care about.

 

I have taught a survey-course in classical Chinese philosophy at Boston University with full responsibility, and have developed a survey-course in Buddhist philosophy on the basis of graduate work in the field. I am also happy to teach courses in the history of post-Kantian European philosophy, in the history of analytic philosophy, and in most areas of theoretical philosophy.
