My teaching and research look at how genuine questions work in thinking, reasoning, and dialogue. I love how good conversations make my horizons expand. This is the topic of my forthcoming book, Using Questions to Think (Bloomsbury). When it comes to religions in particular—where people live out or express ultimate concern and highest yearnings—our dialogues can be intense and intensely fulfilling. Global and critical philosophizing about and with religions is crucial for facilitating good conversations about matters of ultimate concern. My other forthcoming book looks at the direct discourse of figures of ultimate authority depicted in religious narratives (gods, prophets, buddhas, etc.)—can any of them ask genuine questions?
