I am interested in developing a philosophy of religion that can explain religious phenomena and religious philosophy based on diverse religious traditions. Diversity in this case can be understood in terms of regions (inclusion of non-Western religious traditions), topics (including gender & social issues), and approaches (philosophical, narrative, experimental and so on). I have published several articles in which I discussed a philosophy of religion drawn from East Asian religious traditions and demonstrated that when we expand the scope of philosophy of religion beyond the West centered practice, we can see various possibilities to explain the meaning and values of religion in our life, and manifestations of such appear in different forms in different religious traditions and different life situations.
