Mahāyāna Buddhist Philosophy
Philosophy of Mind
Teaching is integral to my self-conception as a philosopher. I have taught a survey-course in classical Chinese philosophy at Boston University with full responsibility, and am developing a survey-course in East Asian Buddhist philosophy via a seminar on ‘Buddhism as Philosophy’ this Fall. I am also happy to teach courses in existentialism, in phenomenology, in the history of 19th and 20th Century European philosophy, and in the philosophy of mind. 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.
